  • The flight zone of an animal is the area surrounding the animal that will cause alarm and escape behavior when encroached upon. If a person enters the flight zone of an animal, the animal will move away. The size of the flight zone depends upon the tameness of the animal.
  • The distance at which an animal will commonly flee from a particular aversive stimulus. Commonly used in an evolutionary context to refer to the distance at which most members of a species flee from humans.
  • Represent (an area) on a map; make a map of
  • function: (mathematics) a mathematical relation such that each element of a given set (the domain of the function) is associated with an element of another set (the range of the function)
  • Associate (a group of elements or qualities) with an equivalent group, according to a particular formula or model
  • Record in detail the spatial distribution of (something)

Student Pilot E6-B Flight Computer with Training NP-8 Plotter (APR's Student Series E6-B8DP)
APR's Student Pilot Wind Triangle & T/S/D Navigation Computer features the patent pending exclusive Wind Speed Cusor Arm that quickly tells you groundspeed, wind correction angle, and magnetic heading. The new APR Windspeed Cursor eliminates two set-ups and the need to mark dots on the plastic disc. This revolutionary windspeed cursor computer is available only from APR through your aviation dealer. There is no similar computer on the market! The E6-B8D calculates all necessary flight planning and en route navigation requirements. Color-coded sawtooth scales are user-friendly and allow for quick, accurate reading. Instructions printed on the computer make learning faster and easier. The Time/Speed/Distance computer provides all major navigation computations. The new APR Windspeed Cursor Arm makes solving wind problems a breeze. Simply set your true course, rotate cursor arm to wind direction, and read your wind correction angle and groundspeed. Instructions for Windspeed Cursor set-up are printed on the computer slide. The flight planning side of the wind triangle slide shows formulae for true course to compass headings as well as illustrated examples of east/west magnetic variation. Also displayed are definitions relevant to wind triangle problems and diagrams of true heading and true course solutions. The headwind and crosswind component grid depicts the relative wind angle in a multi-color graphic for accurate and easy interpretation. Nautical and Statute scales for Sectional and WAC Charts are printed on the sides of the slide.

I am also interested in background info about the Burnaby and Coos Bay meets, and in published programs for all the meets, except Modesto.) Above is a map of the five meets slated by Steve Prefontaine for the Finnish Tour he organized for May 1975 to host Finnish athletes in appreciation for their help and support in his attending many meets in Finland to train in European style track races. Pre developed the meets at Madras and Coos Bay specifically for the Finninsh tour and used three other existing meets to expand the tour to five venues: Burnaby BC, Canada (British Columbia International Track Meet (Swangard Stadium?)); Modesto CA (California Relays); and Eugene OR (NCAA Prep open meet). The Finnish team is shown upper left with Pre and in the center row of individual photos. He shakes hands with Rune Holmen at Madras in the lower right of the left side. The comments below are largely derived from an article by John Conrad of the Eugene Register-Guard: The Finns arrived in Eugene Tuesday, April 29, 1975, after a 21-hour flight. Pre brought them to his home for pizza and cold beer before sending them off to sleep. When a couple who volunteered to house some of the Finns did not show, Pre bedded down the guests, threatening to send his roommates packing. The six athletes were slated to be joined three weeks later by Lasse Viren for races on May 21 and 29. The meets set up for the Finns were slated as follows: May 4: Finnish Tour Meet, Madras OR May 9: Finnish Tour Meet, Coos Bay OR May 15: Finnish Tour Meet, Burnaby BC, Canada May 24: California Realays, Modesto, CA (a May 21st Finnish Tour Meet was originally scheduled for Seattle WA, but it was dropped from the tour) May 29: NCAA Prep meet, Eugene OR Pre was the originator and main promoter for this tour. He planned the tour as a cultural exchange as well as high-level track meets. He recruited talent from the U. of Oregon, Oregon State, the Oregon Track Club, and Club Northwest. Pre's close friend and confidant, Frank Shorter from the Florida Track Club, also agreed to participate. The Finn's track season begins in June, so this tour was important for them in that it afforded their first outdoor track practice and competition of the year. Pre said that possibly more Finns would have come had the trip been firmed up earlier. Tuominen also said that many Finnish distance runners were reluctant to travel because their cross-country season was in progress with national championships in about a month. Prefontaine and Tuominen had forged a relationship during Pre's travels to Europe, with Touminen helping Pre navigate the hazards of European racing. Jaako got Pre into the European circuit and made sure Pre was paid for his appearances. In return, Pre set two American records running in Helsinki. Jaakko was Finnish team leader and promoter, but not the coach since each athlete had their own coach to plan their programs. Jaako also introduced Pre to the sauna, leading Pre to personally build his own sauna at the home he purchased--a matter of great pride. Pre invited the athletes from Finland to compete in the five meets in May 1975. Pre was very fond of the Finns and raced in Finland more often than any other country outside the US. These were Pre's last meets as he died tragically the night after the final race in the series at Hayward Field, Eugene OR. Pre wanted Jaako to send a Finnish team to compete in the northwest, using Eugene as a base. Pre organized the venues himself without AAU sanction at first. (REF: Out of Nowhere by Geoff Hollister, Meyer and Meyer Sports, 2008, pp. 109-114) Pre hoped to lure Lasse Viren as part of the Finnish team to run the 3-mile race on May 29th with him and Frank Shorter and at an earlier May 21st meet in Seattle (that never took place), both part of the series of the Finnish Tour meets. Viren committed to the run in what was Pre's final race on May 29th. However, he dropped out of the meet on short notic

Dakota Farewell, Coventry Airport (The Flight Path) 07/06/2008
My wife treated me today to an early 40th birthday present, a flight aboard this DC3 Dakota! This is the route we took, superimposed on a satellite map of the area. A few statistics: Total distance: 50.59 miles. Maximum speed: 185.7mph. Average speed: 108.3mph. Maximum height: Approx. 1400 feet. On the 15th July 2008, Air Atlantique’s DC3's are being retired from passenger service, as they cannot be modified to meet new European aviation safety rules. So they have commenced a 'farewell' tour of the UK. It was an awesome experience, my first and almost certainly last of a piston engined aircraft. I was amazed at how smooth it was, although it was rather noisy. But tremendous fun! G-AMPY's history is as follows: G-AMPY is also of 1944 vintage. She saw wartime service with the RAF in Burma, becoming a passenger carrier on demob. G-AMPY has been left unlined inside, and the static line and jump lights for paratroopers are still in place. This gives flying in her a more military feel, though the 36 seats are distinctly more comfortable than those used by her paratrooper passengers!
