8 Vol.4 No.2 / Februar y 2015 FLIGHTLINE IF ONE OF THE STANDARD Dynon SkyView displays is good, two must be better, so Van's Aircraft and Dynon have worked to create a dual display option for the RV-12. Both screens are individually confi g- urable. A simple "swap" command will fl ip the right-side display to the left and vice versa. Perfect for giving instruction or just taking maximum advantage of the large panel, the dual SkyView option adds to the already outstanding value of the RV-12. The dual touch screen is an option on the RV-12 SkyView avionics order form for experimental light-sport aircraft (E-LSA) builders and is available as an option on special light-sport aircraft (S-LSA) RV-12s. An optional kit that adds a second screen to a flying RV-12 with a single screen is also available. A POH Tray mounted under the right-side panel is included to replace the mapbox. For more information on the dual Dynon or the RV-12, call Van's Aircraft or visit www.VansAircraft.com . Van's RV-12 Is Now Available With Dual Dynon SkyView Touch Screen Displays ANDREW BARKIN, EAA 210095, of Camarillo, California, is a pilot, engineer, and inventor who studies tribology—the science of lubrication. Several years ago, he became dissatisfi ed with the sprays that were available on the market and embarked on a personal journey to formulate a new product that would use modern technology and chemistry. He mixed a high-quality petroleum base with a hand-selected mixture of the fi nest additives, including PTFE (commonly known by the trademarked name Tefl on). PTFE is one of the most lubricious materials known. The result is a new multipurpose maintenance product called Andy's Super Oil, a totally improved spray lubricant that outperforms the products available in the marketplace today. It's available from Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co. Andy's Super Oil—Fastest Growing New Spray Lubricant for Aircraft A NEW BOOK, A Comprehensive Guide to Composites: Processes & Procedures From the Professionals, is an insider's viewpoint on the tips and techniques used by the pros to fabricate advanced compos- ite parts. Author Kevin Fochtman's more than 30 years of industry experience pro- vides valuable insight on safety, shop and equipment needs, engineering materials, layup, fabrication, and quality control. Students and instructors alike will benefi t from the coverage of lean manufac- turing, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and advanced composites, all in one book. Not only will readers understand the basic skills required by today's composite industry, but also they will gain foundational knowledge to pursue higher-education goals in mate- rial science, composite engineering, and composite research and development. An ideal textbook for science and technology classes for middle school, high school, magnet and STEM programs, as well as vocational and higher-education learning, the book also is available in PDF and e-pub formats, as well as an e-bundle.
