General Aviation on the Rise!

With Flight Bag Technology! 

Win a $100 
Amazon Gift Card

Troy Techau is also working on his PhD at ERAU, and I am fortunate to be in his cohort. Troy's commitment to General Aviation is unsurpassed. Seriously, I think we should call him Mr. General Aviation. While others drive to campus in Daytona, Troy flies. He also named his daughter Piper. I'm thinking, while many teenagers will be getting cars for their Sweet 16, Piper might need an airplane. Troy is also passionate about where General Aviation his headed and will be a voice in the industry.

While I am surveying commercial pilots, Troy is surveying General Aviation Pilots. Troy is also giving participants the chance to win a $100 gift card. You could be that winner for 15 minutes of your time.

When's it my turn to fly?"

Troy's Research: 

General Aviation Pilot Acceptance 
and Adoption of Electronic Flight Bag Technology

If you are you a pilot and have flown in general aviation (14 CFR § 91) in the past year, you can fill out a survey and have a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card. 

"Why do some general aviation pilots choose to use electronic flight bags (EFBs), and others choose not to use EFBs during their flight operations? I’m interested in the opinions of pilots that use EFBs as well as those pilots that do not use EFBs. 

As an incentive for completing the survey, you’ll have the option of entering a drawing to win a $100 Amazon gift card. 

 The survey is anonymous, 
and should take at most 15 minutes. 

Please visit to get started! 

Good Luck on the $100 Gift Card.
