Man gets 5 month sentence for shining laser at helicopter

Guy in Vancouver, BC got caught after he shone a laser at a patrolling RCMP helicopter who then got it on camera and FLIR, then followed him until his arrest. Over 200 incidents in Canada last year, 30 so far this October. On board video here -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mys6tiQo1R8 News Story ...

Re: Tiedown Party

Unfortunately I missed the tiedown party and EP 300 hopefully will catch a UCAP event next year. Was at AirVenture but I was sick Thursday and my friend needed to leave right away Sunday to get home for work. Look forward to listening to the episodes on the ipod tonight.

Oshkosh must see/do items?

I'm going to Oshkosh for the first time this year, planning to arrive Wednesday evening and staying until Sunday morning. While there's obviously an infinite amount of things to see and do just curious if people have suggestions for must see / do items?

Re: My story - and thanks!

Congratulations Landis. I'm just finishing my CPL and going on to my Multi IFR and possibly my instructors rating. Fortunately in Canada we don't have that 1500 hour regulation to be an F/O though it's a minimum of 800 before anyone will look at you still. Glad to hear you're happy with that decisio...

UCAP live at Oshkosh?

Thinking of going to Oshkosh this year as I'm not working (doing CPL training full time), was wondering if UCAP will be doing a live recording again this year, if so do you know which day it will be? I can probably only go for 3-4 days if I do go. Also any other advice for which days to go if I can ...

Re: Handheld GPS for VFR

I have the base model Aera 500 and so far I really like it. The touch screen interface makes it much easier to use than scrolling around with buttons. I used to have a 296 and this is far easier to use in flight and on the ground. The only thing I've had with it is I lost GPS signal on the last flig...

Re: Flying over wilderness in a 172 Cutlass?

First just want to mention I rewrote the post as it was rather long lol, basically summed the question up there. Champguy I appreciate that the responsibility for the decision is mine alone, I'm just curious if people would view doing that as risky or not. Similar to the "do you fly past glidin...
