Re: Checked Out in the SportCruiser AKA Piper Sport

I have flown 2 Tecnams, the Eaglet and sierra. Both ware nice planes. If you see a tecnam check it out. They have been in. Business for 60 years. how true, Rob! Tecnam is part of aviation history in Italy, as much as SIAI Marchetti, the makers of the 260, is. Marchetti is from the north of Italy, n...

Re: Air France 447 data recorder(s) found!

Other sources in France are much more cautious and now state that the boxes have been located into a 5km radius, which is very different from what was said in previous news: http://www.lepoint.fr/actualites-societe/2010-05-06/crash-aerien-boites-noires-de-l-af-447-dominique-bussereau-se-montre-prude...

Air France 447 data recorder(s) found!

Looks like they have located the data recorder(s) of the ill-fated Airbus 330 F-GZCP operating the GIG-CDG route as Air France 447 on June 1st last year. This is a developing story, so you will surely read a lot about this. It's big on the news in France as I type this. http://www.20minutes.fr/artic...

Re: 1st Solo!

Way to go DCFlyer!! I had the exact same feeling that you describe, more nervous with the CFI onboard, but when I was finally by myself I ended up nailing 3 perfect patterns with 2 touch and go and a nice fullstop landing. It's been 19 years ago, but the memory is still vivid. Enjoy your moment, pil...

Boom goes LORAN

Yes, now it's more than official, there will be no more LORAN, at least in Alaska.

The video linked in the article is quite impressive...

Re: How does one convince their wife it will be ok...

When I had my takeoff incident with my wife-to-be in the right seat, I was the one who was scared the most! I was afraid she might be hurt, I was afraid she might turn away from aviation, I was afraid she might force me to turn away from aviation. None of this happened, as she's truly a special girl...

Re: The Aviators - TV Series

They were running around with a camera crew and a very cute lady with a microphone in her hand on two golf carts at Sun and Fun. I am sure they shot a lot of footage in Lakeland. Hopefully those who weren't there will get to see some nice images of SnF soon on the TV. --Luca

Re: Episode #182 "Jeb's Home for Wayward Pilots

Funny how that works Luca, I feel the same way every time I have to leave Italy. Guess the grass is always greener on the other side, eh? how true! But I was specifically talking about aviation, and the world's best aviation system in is the USA, and everyone is fully aware of that. You guys are ju...
