The Commercial Ticket Myth
Do you know what it takes to start earning money with your aircraft? The FAA’s Medium blog, Cleared for Takeoff, published the story of a helicopter pilot who offered sightseeing tours unaware that he was breaking regulations. Pilots are ultimately responsible for knowing the rules and regulations regarding the privileges and limitations of a commercial pilot certificate. Read The Commercial Ticket Myth at to learn everything you need to do to stay in compliance while earning money with your aircraft.

A Fresh Forecast
Weather conditions significantly impact aircraft flight time, performance, and safety. The weather we experience on the ground and in the air affects every decision made in aviation. Whether you are new to flying or a seasoned aviator, weather planning is essential. There are many evaluation products available to support a comprehensive weather briefing and inform good judgment for all aviators. It is important to familiarize yourself with all the tools available and understand how each product fits into your flying timeline to develop a total awareness of the atmospheric conditions. Read about the technology that has revolutionized the field of forecasting in “A Fresh Forecast” at in the Mar/Apr 2024 issue of FAA Safety Briefing. See the entire weather-themed issue at
