Landing airplanes in the remote, desolate and unforgiving environment of the Southern polar region is nothing new.  Scientists and Military expeditions regularly fly to Antarctic-based airfields for a multitude of purposes although the aircraft used are typically more suited to such rugged conditions; including the use of snow/ice-packed runways. For the first time ever, HiFly […]

Any real pilot will tell you that flying in a simulator is completely different than flying a real plane.  Physical cues such as g-load and gravity provide feedback to real pilots as they control the aircraft through the sky. In this fantastic video, Austin talks through the differences as our attempts to mimic flight in […]

In a moment akin to ‘Grand Theft Auto’ coming to life, Italian pilot Dario Costa has set a new Guinness World Record by flying 2.26km (1.4 miles) through the Çatalca Tunnels in Northern Turkey.

“The Premier Firefighting Airplane” In 1965, Canadair revealed the CL-215 to the World at the Paris Air Show.  One of the only marine-based airplanes to be developed in over 20 years, the CL-215 was a revolutionary new design to solve an old problem: battling the remote forest fires of the Canadian wilderness and around the […]

Clash of the Titans.  In the early 1990’s, at the dawn of the Stealth Fighter era, two companies battled for one of the most significant contracts in American Air Force history.  Lockheed with it’s ultimately successful F-22 Raptor was pitted against an equally-capable prototype developed by Northrop under the prototype designation ‘YF-23’. In a  contest […]

Despite being shrouded in secrecy and falling victim to competing global interests, many historians still agree that the British BAC TSR-2 was one of the most advanced strategic bombers of its time.  Capable of sustained cruise at Mach 2.0 at 51,000ft and an effective range of 3,400nm, no other aircraft on the planet could match […]
