Re: Guess Who Just Hit the Big 4-0???

Happy Birthday Jack! Ironically, today is my wife's 40th as well... or shall I say her 11th 29th birthday.

I went to Amazon first too, but I'll just order it directly from Rich's web site.

Re: Aerobatic spin/stall training

Ahhhh, the master has spoken! :) Rich, I am wondering if you can shed some light on something for me. I've had conversations with a few pilots recently who are of the belief that stalling from a forward slip is a very bad thing and will lead to a spin. Their reasoning being that any condition other ...

Re: Your Thoughts on Spin Training

I think spin or upset recovery training is a great idea and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. That being said, you need to go into it with the understanding that it won’t necessarily teach you how to recover from a spin in YOUR aircraft. It will introduce you to the general rules of spin ...

Re: Cessna Versus Piper

Re: Cessna Versus Piper

How many Archers does the flight school have compared to C172s? My point is, I would rather train in the airplane that offered me more scheduling flexibility. If they have only 1 Archer and it goes down for maintenance or other issues, you are out of options. On the other hand, if they have 3 C172s,...

Re: Buying and managing an airplane

IIRC, I've got a fairly robust cost spreadsheet someone once gave me. PM me if you want a copy. I'll see if I can dig it up. The numbers only tell half the story. The subjective benefits to owning are huge... no time schedules to keep, you know what all the squawks, you know where it's been and with...
