Members of the Machinists Union voted 58 percent to reject the deal but only 49 percent to strike in voting Saturday. The union had recommended a strike but a two-thirds majority was required.

Henderson Aviation’s newest flight instructor, Mo Holcombe, is bringing 25 years of flight experience to his lessons with local aviation enthusiasts.
“I was born looking up,” said Holcombe. “I was always fascinated with airplanes and actually had my head in the clouds looking for all the different types of airplanes.”
Holcombe said that he fulfilled those dreams of aviation when he first began flying in 1985.
“When I was sixteen,” he said, “I went to work, saving every dime from [my] job painting […]
My adventures started just over a year ago when a friend of mine was losing a partner in
a Piper Arrow. The group of four didn’t want to go to three for cost reasons, so they
were looking for someone interested. One of the partners is a CFII and agreed to
instruct me at a very reasonable price. Additionally, the group gave me a very attractive
“rental” rate to learn in with the intent that I would buy in after I received my ticket.

Rod advocates a dive and drive technique rather than […]

As we continually build upon the foundation that supports our aviation activities, I fear that many of us are neglecting a very important cornerstone.
The Practical Test Standards (PTS) are the basis for all training and evaluation in the US, yet few know where they are, what they say, or most importantly, how they can save lives.
The great news is that they are readily available FOR FREE, on line, they are very easy to read and […]
