NEWS&GUIDE PHOTO / PRICE CHAMBERS
A bi-plane crashed by pilot Brent Blue sits in Fish Creek on Tuesday afternoon after he tried to abort his take off from an earthen airfield near Wilson. Neither Blue or his passenger Laurie Blann were injured and both made it to dry land quickly after the accident.

Nonin Pulse Oximeter

Pulse oximeters, which measure the percentage of oxygen in the blood, are remarkable devices.   They have completely changed the way medicine is practiced and when I introduced pulse oximeters to general aviation in 1994, they transformed the way pilots use oxygen in aircraft.

Doc Blue Tip: Aircraft Cabin Pressure Sensing & Alerting

AltAlert_300

Early detection is the key to preventing cabin pressurization failures and that’s precisely why I use a backup cabin pressure altitude sensing and alerting device. This is especially important because the switch used to pressurize my Cessna 340 is hard to see and I never touch it, so when I flew my aircraft after an […]
