Tecnam Aircraft Headquarters Tour

You’ve seen the videos with our Tecnam Twin (P2006T) which we love. However after touring the factory in Italy and seeing the care that goes into each aircraft made us love it even more. Come along with myself and the MzeroA.com team on a behind the scenes tour of Tecnam Headquarters in Capua,... read more

Pilot Controlled Airports

Have you ever been cutoff in the traffic pattern? If only everyone read and followed the basic common courtesies the AIM gives us the traffic pattern might be a safer place. In this quick video I share some of those ideas that apply to “pilot controlled”... read more

Learning From Aviation Mistakes

I don’t like talking about accidents in aviation. However I do believe we’d be doing all involved a disservice by not learning from what went wrong and finding ways to use their story for good and make aviation a safer... read more

Cut Off In The Traffic Pattern

Flying doesn’t always go as planned. Last week you enjoyed the lap around the pattern in the J3 Cub with my good friend Jamie Beckett what you didn’t see is the footage from the second lap around the pattern where we have an interesting situation with a pilot who’s first radio call was a right base for the runway we were on the upwind for! I had our team here remove the other pilots tail number out of respect for them but it goes to show you why you need to always be ready for the unexpected at pilot controlled airports. Enjoy the video – Jason I’ve been doing a lot of cub flying and many of you have asked if you could purchase one of our “cub lightning bolt” MzeroA shirts. So I’ve decided to do a very limited run of them. The shirt will only be available until this Sunday making it a true limited edition. So if you want a SUPER SOFT limited edition MzeroA Piper Cub shirt CLICK HERE or Click the image to the... read more

Stick and Rudder Flying

Aviation is a humbling experience. No matter how much experience you have it will continue to challenge you whether you’re ready or not. Thats what flying a tail dragger was like for me. I may be a tailwheel endorsed pilot but that was 6 years ago! Flying a tailwheel teaches you true stick and rudder skills. Fly along with myself and AOPA “You Can Fly Ambassador” Jamie Beckett for a landing that I would call “a bit too exciting” I was very thankful to have Jamie there as my instructor. Because even a flight instructor needs a flight... read more
