Re: Episode #175 "Pointy Headed Safety Wonks"

Can anyone tell me what this gyro is? At least I think it's a gyro. Photo taken at Fort Campbell, KY, but there was no sign to indicate what it is.... http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_A513_4UkLuc/S5wj7wNo-0I/AAAAAAAAACE/LJX3dTRBCEc/s400/IMG_3838.jpg A couple more photos here: http://blog.flying-man.net/201...

iPhone Logbook Recommendations?

I've been using logshare.com for years. It's web-based, and doesn't have an iphone app, but the interface is easy enough to use with the iphone browser. I typically just update my logshare.com logbook after each flight, then every so often copy it by hand into my actual logbook. Well, logshare.com i...

Funny -- I was thinking "it's ugly so it must be Russian."

Re: Enroute Oshkosh

It's crystal clear that Jack needs a Tiger. They handle beautifully, 135 knots (book is 139) on 10-11 gph. No folding landing gear to maintain or repair, unmatched visibility, and 950 pounds useful load (~650 with full 51 gallons of fuel). The back seats fold flat -- guaranteed that Jack could fit a...

What is this plane?

Had an amazing flight in CAVU conditions up and across NY's Class B this weekend. Saw this airplane at Quonset State (KOQU). No idea what it is. Anyone?

Re: Central New England Drive/Fly In Lunch Meetup

Actually, for parking, tell them you want to go to Five Star. It is to the right, just next to the restaurant. They have the best fuel prices by far. AirFlyte is on the other side of the restaurant and are very active about "assisting arrivals with parking". Make sure you stay to the righ...

Re: Interesting Places to Fly (KGAI-KEYE)

Thanks for the suggestions. We ended up camping the first night at I10, which is in the middle of Wolf Run State Park in mid-Ohio. Great place to camp, paved runway, but unattended and not even a trash can (although there is an outhouse). The next morning we went to I19 in Dayton, and took a $40 ren...

Re: Interesting Places to Fly (KGAI-KEYE)

Thanks for the suggestions! Lee Bottom looks interesting -- I wish the cabin weren't already reserved. I seem to remember hearing about another airport, I thought maybe it was in Ohio, with cabins near a river where they do a lot of fly-fishing.... Does that ring any bells for anyone? I probably hea...

Interesting Places to Fly (KGAI-KEYE)

I'm based at Gaithersburg, Maryland (KGAI). I lucked my way into a couple tickets to the Indy 500. Its a little over 400 NM due west to Indianapolis (KEYE), so we could do it in one hope, without a fuel stop, the morning of the race. However, a buddy and I decided to take a couple days off and make ...
