Did you find out why your lights were blinky?

And would you need a co pilot/swamper for this?

Sort of? Took it to an A&P, no problems. Worked through annual inspection. The other night I had to cycle the switch twice. I dunno. Short of replacing the wire plus switch I'm out of ideas.

One of my realistic goals, is to fly the Airbus, Blackhawk and my Stinson within 24 hrs.

A330 and B737NG
Bucket List could never be full, but Sopwith Camel is at the top. I haven't truly used rudder pedals in a LONG time though, so that would end badly and quickly.
Dream Job - have it, but would also love to see a B747-8 based in YWG.

The average pilot, despite the somewhat swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy and caring.
These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

C150/C172/C177

Assorted singles. Bush, floats, aero, warbirds.... Jets don't really do it for me.

A job that pays enough to enjoy that kind of flying on my own schedule.
