ahh the good old Smart car...when I was living in the UK they were everywhere and in a city like London make perfect sense. They even came out with a Smart Roadster which was very cool looking but i doubt they will be seen here

besides you have to love anything that bounces when it is in a crash :)

A ban on handguns will not accomplish anything. Criminals dont run around using registered weapons (when they do they are most likely stolen). The law abiding citizen is the one who is going to be punished with this idea. I lived in the UK for 2 years (where a handgun ban has been in place for somet...

I would suggest seeding your torrents as much as possible especially if you have rare files...just remember that if you dont seed, people can and will block your ip address and stop you from connecting to them in the future

long missions in combat are normal and if i am not mistaken it is not uncommon for the crews to take 'uppers' in order to stay awake and alert. as sad as this is, friendly fire incidents are a fact of war no matter how technologically advanced our weapons are.

Instructor Rating?

I have just finished my multi ifr and have sent out the CVs, in hopes someone will hire a low time pilot like myself. I am now contemplating beginning my Instructor rating.

What do you guys think? Is it worth getting? All comments would be much appreciated

As far as I know you dont need an Instructor rating to teach floats as it is a 'rating'. Although the more experience the better as I would be dubious of getting lessons on floats from someone with 7 hours. As for the Instructor Rating costs I got this info from the Rockcliffe FLying Clubs site. Hop...
