About the Climbing Equipment to Take with You to the Rock

Guest Post by Brandon Villatoro (Travel Experta’s Son) Rock climbing is very different to indoor climbing gym. And that flows into the type of equipment you will use. The equipment you really, can’t-leave-home-without need is quickdraws, harness, belay device, rope, carabiners, sling, climbing shoes, chalk and a helmet. Quickdraws and Carabiners for Outdoor Rock Climbing Carabiners are used for many things. You can use them for tying the rope to the harness, putting the rope at the top, ...

What Actually Happened At about 7.30pm on Friday 10 August 2018 a Horizon Air employee used a pushback tractor to move and reposition a Bombardier Q-400 twin turbo-prop engine r...

Why the President Walked Away From Air Traffic Control Reform This Year

Transportation committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Airlines for America) gave up on reform at the end of February. Just weeks before "word had been passed quietly to supporters that Shuster finally believed he had enough votes to bring the FAA reauthorization bill (which included the ATC corporation section) to the House floor the week of March 12th" yet the idea quickly died. Here's why. Continue reading Why the President Walked Away From Air Traffic Control Reform This Year...

Riding into the Sunset With The Last United 747

Unless you’re living under a rock, you know that United retired its 747s last week with one remarkable last flight.

David Hotz helps to feed my unhealthy 747-tribute obsession with this report. [Disclaimer: United paid for David’s flights between Nashville and Honolulu as well as two hotel nights.] The 747 is one of the most recognizable ai...

As I was scanning through Ryanair’s press releases, it dawned on me that the story could really be told by reading between the lines (and between the releases) of the airline’s relati...
