In 1996, Stephanie Hanson Caisse discovered her birth father had been killed in action, while serving in the Marines in the Vietnam War, two months before she was born. He never knew he was about to have a child. He was a member of the HMM-364 Purple Foxes Squadron helicopter pilots. Adopted at birth, Caisse grew up never knowing who her birth parents were. However, at the age of 26, she was forced to find her birth family when she was diagnosed with a congenital illness. The story she uncovered is amazing, and has changed her life, as well as the lives of many others.
Her journey also followed the HMM-364 Purple Foxes Squadron to Iraq, as a new generation of Marines, like Capt. Jennifer Harris, went to war. The story includes a stunning twist of fate that ties the Vietnam and Iraq wars together like never before.
Come hear about this incredible journey, learn of the local Northeast Ohio connection, and see the exhibit honoring Capt. Jennifer Harris KIA.

Thinking about learning to fly? Do you want to fly for a living? Would you like to refresh your knowledge for your flight review? If so, then the place to start is with Rod Machado's new 40-hour+ private pilot eLearning ground school. This eLearning course prepares you to take the private pilot knowledge exam and provides the foundation of knowledge needed to make your flight training a more enjoyable experience.
Psst! Psst! Come here. Come a little bit closer. I've got something I want to ask you, and I don't want anyone else to hear. Are you afraid of heights? It's probably embarrassing to admit it, but if you're like most other pilots, the answer is Yes.
Mention the word poetry to a pilot and he'll act like he's in a hotel fire. He'll think: get low, get down, get out. Admittedly, even I get the heebie-jeebies at the mere mention of haiku (that's Japanese poetry, not the sound of someone sneezing). But poetry is more than cute rhymes with tinkered words. It's an alternate means of learning some of aviation psychology's most important lessons.
Recently, I was having a difficult time seeing things that were in plain view. I was even thinking about visiting the Our Lady of Fatima Optometry Center, where their motto is, "If we can't correct your vision, at least you can have one."
Nobody moves, nobody gets hurt. That's my new strategy for preventing runway incursions. It's a reasonable plan, given that these events have actually increased since the FAA began seriously collecting statistics on the issue. That's right. Despite the implementation of new rules and airport signage, incursions continue to increase year after year (about a 25% increase since 2013). If I were superstitious I might suggest we stop doing things to reduce runway incursions so that their numbers will decrease to some previous level. Unfortunately the "Don't look at it and it will go away" trick probably won't work here.
News flash! The Mona Lisa's eyebrows are missing. That's right. Gone! Some say they were scrubbed off during an early restoration. I suspect they were vaporized when Leonardo had Mona over for a pre-portrait barbecue and he took excessive liberty with the lighter fluid. While I didn't attend a BBQ, my eyebrows are also missing. At least they appeared to disappear as they rose above my forehead in surprise at the FAA's and ACS committee's dumbing-down of standards for commercial pilot certification.
Over the years, I've seen my grandfather do a number of strange things. One time, while watching football on TV, he sat there yelling at the players. I couldn't help but say, "Grandpa, they can't hear you." He replied, "Oh yeah, that's right, they got their helmets on."
Over the years, I've heard many stories about middle-aged pilots (45-65 years) who gave up flying due to a sudden onset of anxiety. Apparently this wasn't induced by any specific aviation trauma nor inspired by the relatively small and perfectly normal decline of reflexes and mental agility experienced by most middle aged pilots. What in the world might spook a 50-ish pilot into abandoning something he obviously once loved to do?
The 1984 movie The Karate Kid revealed a rare pedagogical truth of immense value to flight instructors. The movie centers around Daniel, who volunteers to polish the car and sand the deck of his neighbor Mr. Miyagi (a martial arts master).
Rod Machado - "I'm curious about your experience with bad flight instructors and hope you'll add to this blog with your comments. Of course, most flight instructors do a fantastic job. I just can't say that LOUD enough: Most flight instructors do a fantastic job. But not all do! And when they don't, they cause a lot of damage to the flight training industry."
Adventure Pilot has announced the addition of synthetic vision capability to their iFly GPS system. This new feature provides a 3D terrain view, detailed obstruction icons and many other elements that allow pilots to have a better understanding of their surroundings. Synthetic Vision is available as a free upgrade with any paid iFly GPS subscription.
As boys growing up in the rural Midwest, my brother and I were very fortunate to have been fetched up across the road from a small sod landing strip. As a result we were both bitten by the aviation bug at a young age. I have many fond memories of lying in the tall grass at the foot of a walnut tree on the edge of the field watching the Sunday flyers carve circles around our little sod strip in the hollow in the hills.
