What's in My Pilot Flight Bag

When I go flying, there are a handful of tools, products, and supplies that I have remained strict about keeping in my pilot flight bag. Here is a comprehensive list of the stuff I use and love.



I have been using ForeFlight for a few years now. Coming from a time when I learned strictly on paper charts... ForeFlight changed the game for consolidating all of the heavy charts, books, and procedures into one very robust app that I use on my iPad Mini.


When I'm on the go and in a place where having my Yaesu transceiver isn't practical, sometimes I open up LiveATC app and listen to nearby ATC channels. It's nerdy.

To be honest, the Lightspeed Zulu is still one of my favorite aviation headsets and I have had it since practically day one. Lightspeed makes quality stuff, and my headset is no exception. Since getting it in 2008, 8 years later it still looks and functions like new.
