    In case anyone got naughty with the flight attendants?

    it also makes a lot of sense. While flying here at UND I try not to think about how many people touch the yoke after just relieving themselves behind a hangar at some podunk airport in North Dakota.

    Windex in the cockpit = good.

    I think its cultural, Japanese are very professional from what I have seen. I agree, it does look very nice.

    I've heard about that, do you know the reason for this?

    Batting gloves or mechanics gloves. During the winter I wear leather gloves, they keep the hands warm yet I get the required precision to operate the gps and comms.

    Curling gloves or golf gloves are good to use.

    Although I never had a student actually wear gloves whilst training some did have a need for them. I would suggest you speak to you flying instructor about it.

    Gloves?

    I have a question about gloves. When I'm flying my hands tend to get sweaty. I'm not nervous or scared at all, but I guess it has something to do with adrenaline. It hasn't caused my hands to slip off the yoke or anything, but I keep having to wipe my hands on my pants in order for me to get rid of the sweat. I don't want to slip off the yoke. Are there gloves made for flying that I could get and that are inexpensive? Would gloves affect my flying? Can anyone point me to a site that sells gloves made specifically for flying?
    Thanks.
