Congrats Hans, you now owe me a new keyboard since I spat coffee all over mine reading that!

Have you crept into a TeePee lately?

The hardest thing about flying is knowing when to say no


After over a half a century of flying no one ever died because of my decision not to fly.

It should be interesting to see where all this ends up.
So what are the chances of finding floatplane flying work with 100 hours of float time in 2018? Also I guess I have to dig deep to find all the mom and pop operators as they don't advertise too much.

My first float gig I got on a driving trip and he hired on the spot, interesting.
