Re: How much water is "Open Water"?

Thanks for the thoughts. Seems the regs say you need to be able to glide to something that's not wet; and common sense says some basic equipment will make a world of difference.

How much water is "Open Water"?

There's been some good discussion about basic precautions a pilot should take when flying over "open water" and I'd like to get a better understanding of what exactly is meant by "OPEN". FAR 91.119, which deals with minimum safe altitudes, says we can fly at any altitude above op...

Re: If the TSA were running New York...

I ride the subway into work every morning from Brooklyn to my office in Manhattan. For years now, the NYPD has occasionally set up a station at the entrance to the subway to conduct random searches of riders' bags. These past two days that same station has been manned by three uniformed TSA agents. ...

Re: Headsets for little kids

Interesting... I assumed the only mic transmitting on the frequency was the one being keyed. But if you key the mic and a passenger is talking, their background noise is transmitted? That makes sense, I just never thought of it. Thanks for the input and offer for a test-drive. I may take you up on t...

Headsets for little kids

Hello everyone. I want to get my four-year old son a headset and was wondering if anyone has experience with either the Sigtronics or David Clark youth headsets. This summer I, along with his grandfather (also a pilot), plan to take him on his very first GA flight... Big day. Any and all advice is w...

Re: Going flying in Australia

Thanks for the info. I just returned from my trip, and unfortunately my one potential flying day saw 20 gusting to 30... So no-go. I guess I'll have to go back. I did manage to pick up some chats while there; seems to be very interesting flying.

Thanks again.

The Mahattan Project

Hey James. It looks like we're getting a local airport: http://manhattanairport.org/ From the website: New York City has no viable airport... Davenport, Iowa has an airport. Tallahassee has one. And so does Lexington, Kentucky. But New York City doesn’t. Amazingly, there is still a large, undevelope...

Going flying in Australia

Hello, I'm planning to be in Australia the first two weeks in October. I'll primarily be in Sydney, but will likely visit Melbourne as well-- The details of my itinerary aren't set. I'd love to find a way to arrange a couple sight-seeing hours. If anyone can recommend a CFI willing to take a yankee ...
