Re: 50th Anniversary of Moon Landing

No. :( Even I know we need a pressurized cabin and rocket engines. I may have gone higher than the book number on altitude once back in the old days with an instructor that was curious how high a student pilot could get one to go. We probably didn't even get hypoxia and we didn't have an oxygen bott...

I like the gofund me idea but forget Kim jong.
I say digits and I go and live stream it on the internet. He's been to the north pole, let's do this!

I have a great gag planned for when we return through the van allen belt.

Hi there,

Since noone is replying to your post I thought I'd throw you a couple nuggets....

That's all I got, hopefully it gets you started.

You know what they say, “nuggets everyday keeps the doctor away.”
I laughed. What sauce do you guys recommend?

Re: How sick is TOO sick to fly?

These new spambots are kind of interesting. They necro bump old threads with near relevant comments cut and pasted from the forums they join. It's hilarious to read sometimes. This one copied a couple of posts signed off by different people.

Re: High Blood Pressure

Wouldn't low be hypotension?

Switched to the 8mg and now I am on the 8mg coversyl+

Still get high readings but I feel pretty good so I'll keep eating them I guess.

Re: Eyesight keeps getting worse - 17 years old

You will probably be fine.
I would go see an Ophthalmologist, they will make sure there is nothing negative going on beyond regular stuff.
That might give you some added confidence.

Re: PStar

If you passed the PPL, PSTAR should be pretty easy but yeah, sounds like you won't need a new one. What is the expiry on them?

For practicing the PSTAR this link is my preference.

Get the PPL flight test done. Then stay current.

Re: Harbour Air switching to battery powered planes

I'd be getting very scared for Albertas long term future. Calgary can go back to being a stop on the #1 for people driving between Vancouver and the east. Except it will be for folks needing to grab a steak and charge their battery. Maybe if the population drops off the fishing can go back to norma...

Sad news indeed. :( For the industry that is.

Re: High Blood Pressure

I have been eating my pill most evenings before bed. I finally got a normal reading towards the low end a few weeks ago. Kept the print out just to look at since I feel like the pills are not doing much.

I notice when I miss one though so there's that. :?

Does the letter "c" in those stand for cookie?

I don't think the coversyl is fixing me but maybe my doc will try something else. I need to find a fitness buddy that will harass me if I'm not at the pool three times a week.
