Re: UAV (or UAS) near midair Tallahassee Fl. Airliner vs Kit

Pretty silly. Before all this "drone" business they would have just reported that an airliner came close to colliding with a model aeroplane, which is actually what happened. It all seems pretty sinister, doesn't it, "a camouflaged drone" operating clandestinely... This incident, while serious, has ...

Re: Taildraggers

I recommend the aircraft logbook. As in filling it out when you're done practicing. You don't need no stinkin' "how-to" book. Get in and drive.

Re: Cirrus CAPS deployed - aircraft had crossed Pacific in F

I know the aircraft in the original post was destroyed, and indeed it looks pretty banged-up. But in general, when the 'chute is deployed, is that the end of that airframe, or is it possible to repair the skin where the chute webbing rips out? If you pull the chute are you condemning the plane or is...

nope -- :smt040 -- it's about open discussion not about likes and dislikes especially by just pushing a button -- why not just say you don't like it -- give the reason why and let the discussion spiral into absurdity -- far more entertaining -- http://jintu.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/facebook_bann...

Re: First Air off course

I can basically sum up the point I'm trying to make here. A plane went off course for reasons we don't know. Some guys have the opinion that it wouldn't have happened if they had been equipped with a moving-map or whatever, and therefore it's the company's fault the aircraft went off course. That is...

I'm not calling First Air pilots "idiots". I'm not going to continue this discussion if you try to put words in my mouth. I already said multiple times, we DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. But if you plow a shittier furrow than everybody else who has the same tractor as you do, and then blame it on not hav...

Re: First Air off course

Well this particular plane didn't hit the ground, so I guess it doesn't matter how many vacuum tubes were up their butts or what kind of TAWS may or may not have been installed. Hey, there wouldn't be any talk of older pilots' greater competency at navigating if it wasn't for the equally vocal group...

Nope, no more comments I have read enough on the matter to realize the subject is not being taken seriously so I would appeciate it that there are no more posts. Too much information on the romans for one day is good. Thank you for the info. Hey man, as well as the awesomely funny joke about Romans...

Re: Falsified Chief pilot application

I feel the same way about restitution for the Napoleonic Wars. Hey, don't get me started on the Romans. They moved onto my peoples' land and built cities and forced us all into labour on their damn roads and made us into second-class citizens on our own island. Who do I see about my land claim? Als...

Re: Woman and Service Dog Unfairly Kicked Off WestJet Flight

Genuine service dogs are extremely well-trained and intelligent, well-behaved animals with a sense of duty and propriety on par with most humans. Calling a little lapdog who is there to comfort an anxious owner a "service dog" does a disservice to real service dogs. Don't misunderstand. I love anima...

Re: Woman and Service Dog Unfairly Kicked Off WestJet Flight

Hey I couldn't agree more. People freak me out even more than dogs. It's just that the (human) pig sitting next to me has the right to be there... or at least the same right to be there as I do, so I guess you get what you pay for. I DO NOT pay to sit next to livestock. And the guy next to me isn't ...

Re: Falsified Chief pilot application

I can tell you there was an exam and an interview 15 years ago... I did 'em. I can't comment on 20 years ago... around that time I was still scared of chief pilots. I guess I would be looking for all my back pay if I suddenly found out I had been doing some chief pilotin' and hadn't been paid for it!

Re: Can I light up in Colorado??

It's probably the neurological changes they're concerned with, but whatever. Druggies usually use dope by smoking it, so there's that too if you like.
