After a lot of searching I can't believe how hard it has been to find an answer to what should be a simple question.  How do you conduct the annual ELT inspection and how do you log it.  According to 91.207, all I have to do is remove an access plate (permitted by Part 43, App A), and to comply with 91.207(d):
  1. verify proper installation
  2.  inspect for battery corrosion (and observe battery label for expiration)
  3. operate the controls and activate crash sensor (set to TX and set to ...

I was departing  25 at Hatteras KHSE on a calm day in my Cherokee 235. An Osprey had landed on the start of the runway 25, then hovered for 3 minutes and departed at low level flight the entire  length of the runway turning left traffic out to the ocean. I back taxied 25 to depart to the west. Did mag checks before back taxi.  Turned around headed down 25 to fly home.  At between 60 to 80 feet I banked right to 270 degrees.  Instantly wake turbulence flipped left wing over to two ...

Question:  Does this mean that up to 25 hours can be "under the hood" time with a qualified safety pilot who is not a CFI?

I know there are myriad opinions on this matter, but I am trying to find authoritative answer.
For decades pilots have dumped sumped fuel on the ground or into containers on the ramp. 
My thought is that t can by put back in the fuel tanks if it is clean. By design, the fuel you are sumping should be the worst in the tank; you look at that sample as representing the contents of the entire tank and determining its suitability for flight. If, based on that sample, you determine that ...
Hi,
I just noticed that my right wingtip strobe is inoperative. Is the beacon sufficient to satisfy the anti-collision light requirement for night (or daytime) flight?
Thanks.
I know student pilots have to make full stops, but the definition of an X-C (FAR 61.1) just says"includes a landing at a point other than the point of departure".So, if I fly to an airport more then 50NM away, do a tough and go, and return home, can I count that as X-C time towards the instrument rating?

I’m adding a helicopter rating to my Private Pilot certificate. My flight review is going to run out soon. Can I just get a flight review in the helicopter since I’m training in it currently?
