Does anyone have flight experience with any of the newer Garmin small screen IFR GPS panel units: GNX 375, GNC 355, GPS 175. I am considering replacing my old transponder with a GNX 375 to give my aircraft IFR GPS capability (currently only dual-VOR, glideslope, DME). But I am concerned about the small screen. Is a 2-inch tall screen really sufficient to navigate?

HI I am 65 years old n very good shape now but I did have a heart attack 12  years ago. I also had AFib which was treated by ablation and had no recurrence. I have 55 hours  in a 172 from 30 years ago and I would like to resume my training and complete the private pilot ticket. I now have the time and resources to do so . My question is this Do you think it is worth the time and expense at this time in my life or am I just chasing an unattainable dream because of my age and medical history. Also- ...

Like the title says, there's a 1973 C172 with a beacon that has been deactivated by the mechanic (it was causing issues in the electrical system).

I have my own opinion on this, but wanted to see what others thought as well.

What is the difference between medical certificate first class and student pilot certificate, and only medical certificate first class while applying at MedExpress ?!
the first option was not applicable.

I recently flew my family to Brownsville TX KBRO for a beach vacation in my 206.  The airport is as far south as you can go in Texas and surrounded on three sides by Mexico.  Threshold to boarder distances are 2.5 to 4 miles.  I filed IFR and was able to arrive and depart on runway 13, making sure I made a tight turn northbound upon departure so all was good.   What surprised me was that the RNAV 31 approach has its IAF, IF and FAF all well inside Mexico.   Are there special rules for ...

Does the FAA now require all CFIs to have at least a 2nd class medical certificate based on the court's new interpretation?

My flying club has an experimental aircraft and it's registered in an LLC.  Who is listed as the owner when applying for a LODA to train in the aircraft?  Is it the LLC or does every member of the Flying Club need to get their own LODA for the aircraft?

The 2021 Guide for Aviation Medical Examiners states that, “An individual may be considered for an FAA authorization of a Special Issuance (SI) or Special Consideration (SC) of a Medical Certificate (Authorization) if…”, in addition to other things, "…the applicant DOES NOT have symptoms or history of: 

  • Psychosis

  • Electro convulsive therapy
  • Treatment with multiple SSRIs concurrently

In short, after I passed all knowledge exams, what should I do to complete and get my AGI and IGI certificate?
Now the story begins,
I applied for AGI+IGI certificate in IACRA to a point that it shows partially completed (need a RI or CO for further process that I hadn't reached one.)

Due to COVID, local FSDO do not accept any appointments to ...
