Re: Movie Flight

Thought it was great. More about a man with personal demons. Not sure if a plane could fly like that. But still a good movie.

Re: IFR certified GPS Question

Yep Thanks everyone. Still considering the cheapest option. There seems to be some electronic GPS (NON moving maps) that a a lot cheaper than a 430W. THey have the instruments required to practice i.e. ADF, DME, VOR etc. For practice sakes I think my Ipad with the app AIr Nav Pro has all the "needed...

Re: A good laptop?

I agree with an above poster. The Macbook is superior in every way. I disagree where they say stay away from refurb. I have bought 2 iMacs, 2 Macbooks, ATV, and Ipad from their refurb site. I have never had an issue. 1 year warranty included. I don't know if you have ever dealt with APPLE. Everythin...

Re: IFR certified GPS Question

Yes i know there are many issues. My thoughts were if its going to cost 7k to rent. I would be ahead of the game paying 10k to have a unit installed. In a year or two I will sell the 150 and move on. With the GPS installed the value of the plane increases. I also have the option of pulling it and se...

Re: IFR certified GPS Question

Why do you need a GPS to do IFR training? I own a 150 with just VFR instruments. No ADF, VOR etc. Since it will cost approximately 6600$ (40x$165) in fees just to rent the airplane with IFR equipment. I thought if I could get a GPS certified for IFR training installed for 8-9K I would be ahead of t...

Re: Serious answers where will I get funds from?

The issue is not how to get funds, Almost any bank will give you a line of credit. The question is how am i going to be able to pay off 50k in debt when im done training in this industry.
