SolarEdge

We are gradually making a move away from internal combustion engines and fossil fuels here at Glass Cockpit Aviation, because it makes sense from so many angles. We have recently installed a 13.2 kWh solar array at our maintenance facility, and purchased three electric vehicles. Our goal is to have a fleet of electric aircraft as soon as they become feasible for flight training.
You can monitor our solar energy production on our kiosk link below.

Kayden and his dad, Brian, made it to idaho yesterday, with our second 2013 RV12. We now have openings for flight training, call or email us [email protected] if you are ready to start your flight training.

08/05/2019

Our new-to-us RV12 is on its way from San Antonio to its new home in Boise. It will be nice to have twins.

It is being flown by 16 year-old Kayden, who recently soloed in our other RV12, and his dad. What a great experience to have while still in high school.

07/09/2019

What do you do when you find a great aircraft? Buy another! We are looking forward to confusing the Boise air traffic controllers.

05/20/2019

This was the view from our runway this afternoon. I usually will cancel a training flight for this type of weather.

[05/20/19]   We have openings in June for accelerated IFR courses. Contact us if you are interested.

[04/14/19]   Can instruction received from a Sport Pilot CFI count towards the private pilot certificate? Yes, as of July 27, 2018 it can count towards Sport, Recreational, and Private pilot's certificates.

FAR 61.109
(l) Permitted credit for flight training received from a flight instructor with a sport pilot rating. The holder of a sport pilot certificate may credit flight training received from a flight instructor with a sport pilot rating toward the aeronautical experience requirements of this section if the following conditions are met:

(1) The flight training was accomplished in the same category and class of aircraft for which the rating is sought;

(2) The flight instructor with a sport pilot rating was authorized to provide the flight training; and

(3) The flight training included either—

(i) Training on areas of operation that are required for both a sport pilot certificate and a private pilot certificate; or

(ii) For airplanes with a VH greater than 87 knots CAS, training on the control and maneuvering of an airplane solely by reference to the flight instruments, including straight and level flight, turns, descents, climbs, use of radio aids, and ATC directives, provided the training was received from a flight instructor with a sport pilot rating who holds an endorsement required by §61.412(c).

[03/28/19]   Are you a pilot with close to 150 hours? Ready to be a flight instructor? We can do that at 150 hours, with no instrument or commercial ratings required.

Baker Aircraft

Older guy has been burglarizing airport offices, many along I-5 and I-84.

Update: 8/16/19 The sheriffs office called and said Idaho has arrested the individual who has been breaking into airports in several states. Idaho is putting him behind bars for eight years. We want to thank everyone who shared this video and helped keep an eye out for him.

Update: Anyone providing information leading to the arrest of this individual, Baker Aircraft will provide a free 1 hour scenic helicopter ride in our Bell 206 LongRanger. Please help share this to make it go viral.

Here is a video of the guy who robbed us last night at Baker Aircraft around 5:30 in the evening if anyone has information please contact the Baker County sheriffs office at 541-523-6415.

02/15/2019

Congratulations to Aaron Disbrow on completing his first solo flight the other day! Here is to more safe solo flights in the future!

[02/14/19]   We love all our customers, but one segment we are especially impressed with is our younger group; the high schoolers and college-age students who pursue their dreams of flight. Thank you for reminding us of the passion of flight, showing us what can be achieved through hard work, and allowing your goals and dreams to inspire us to keep moving forward too. The future is looking pretty good.

[02/12/19]   The FAA says that Bipolar disorder is not conducive to flying because it can disrupt judgement. Truth is, it messes up the magnetic compass.

Our Cessna 172P gets even better with age. We recently added a new Garmin radio, Garmin GPS, and ADS-B out.

01/24/2019

Ever wonder what it looks like inside the muffler(s) of your Cherokee? It has an inner cylinder with holes, which tends to break off in pieces, restricting the airflow thus decreasing performance. It's not always visible by looking up the tailpipe with a flashlight, but can be viewed with a boroscope. It is a good idea to proactively replace these mufflers every 1000 hours.
