The 2015 FlightSimCon conference is just around the corner. It is being held on the weekend of June 13 & 14 at the New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks, CT. There will be over 14 presentations including “Six Steps to Setting up a Home Desktop Simulator.” Attendees will also have access to the largest air museum in New England with 70 aircraft on display. Sounds like a good conference is you are an armchair pilot or a licensed pilot looking to improve or brush-up on your skillset.

Check-out our aluminum P-51 Mustang and Spitfire aircraft “trench art” reproductions. Trench art, as it is now known, was created by soldiers whiling away their time in the trenches. We suspect that these airplanes were originally crafted by airplane mechanics stationed at an airfield in the British Isles. These aluminum aircraft make great pilot gifts for under $50.00 and are ideal airplane decor.

What happens here stays here. Not this time Las Vegas. The pilots of Allegiant Air are planning to strike on Thursday possibly affecting 250 flights and 186,000 passengers. The Las Vegas-based airline, which is also one of the most profitable airlines by flying to smaller cities, is going to court to try to stop the strike. The dispute is over crew scheduling and some benefits. This is a busy weekend in Las Vegas with folks traveling for Easter weekend and the NCAA basketball championship games.

Is an 18 propeller plane in our future? NASA through the LEAPTech (Leading Edge Asynchronous Propellers Technology project is developing an efficient electric powered aircraft. Using a 31 foot carbon composite wing, 18 propellers, each with its own small engine, will be powered by its own lithium iron phosphate battery. Cruising speed is planned to be at between 200-230 mph. Interesting is that each propeller will be able to operate independently at various speeds. Wow, we wonder what that cockpit panel will look like!

This Airplane Wing Coffee or Cocktail Table is fabulous airplane decor. Crafted from aluminum in the shape of an airplane wing it even includes the rivets for an authentic aviation look. This table is an ideal gift for a pilot, or anyone looking to decorate in an “industrial-look” motif. Place this airplane furniture in an aviator man cave, FBO lounge area, airplane hangar, or an airplane themed room to create a cool focal point.
