Over the last couple of years I have taken both Coast Flight Academy's Emergency Procedures Course and Instrument Refresher Course. If you own / fly a SR22, and don't get in nearly as many hours as you'd like, use your instrument rating primarily to file IFR to VFR on top when the marine layer hanging around, shoot the same approaches all the time to keep current, ever wonder about turning back to the airport on a engine failure on take off, and when should I be using the CAPS system, then I highly recommend both courses.

The day is broken up into two hours of ground school and four hours of simulation, where you will be given the chance to react to an emergency...

For most of us, we learned to use the word "Roger" early in our aviation career. We learned that it simply means that we heard and understand what the other person said. We were clearly taught that it connotes no permission or authorizations. For whatever reason, we then go through our career or hobby of flying and hardly ever use that word. And we seldom hear it spoken by ATC! So what happens when we have a problem on the airfield and we tell ATC that we need to do something and they say "Roger?" What does that mean? Let me give you a recent example...
