With the colder weather approaching, it’s a good idea to start thinking about having the right gear for the cold. For me, that means digging my hat out of the closet and buying a new set of work gloves.
Mechanix makes many different types of gloves, but I have found for working on aircraft, the Original .5mm High Dexterity gloves tend to be best. While these gloves will not provide a ton of protection from the cold, it does provide enough protection for most situations. The trade off is that they are extremely flexible so it doesn’t feel like your are wearing a heavy glove.
The folks at Dauntless Software have been hard at it coming up with new ways to study for the written part of the A and P license tests. These new apps are available for both iphone and Android applications. There are separate apps for each test, general, airframe and powerplant. Each test prep costs 34.99 and is available through download at the Dauntless website here.
