UCAP Shirt

Dave - good to meet you at Sun-N-Fun. By the way... If people start coming up to you guys and asking for T-shirts... um, er, um... see it's this way: I made the shirt, wore it all day friday, a few people asked about it. But by the end of the day we were getting a little tired and punchy. As we were...

Re: Challenging Airports

MKN... Great videos! And nice landings. Watching trees pass by my wings (what appears to be just a few feet from the wing tips?!) would freak me out. Seems like the wrong gust at the wrong time could wreck your day! In some ways it makes me a little jealous, in that as a "renter"...it's ne...

Re: Episode #125 "Landing Catywompus"

OK Dave - so the GF read your response. Her eyes being wide as pies while reading, she calmly looked at me and said unless I mistook her for Indian Jones... I had better not ever take her on any outing like those that you mention. :D :D :D As for the shorter strips... I need many more hours under my...

Re: Episode #125 "Landing Catywompus"

Dave, did you LAND at Everglades City? And if yes... then that Annie of yours is a strong woman... she continued fly with you? (chuckle). We had contemplated stopping there (at everglades city X01) for a "restroom" break. But my passenger leafed through the clipboard she was holding... thi...

Re: Episode #125 "Landing Catywompus"

Jack, at times I'm so jealous. I was born in Warwick, RI and used to love to hike (and often did) up in NH. Mount Potash, along the Kankamancus river... I would love to head up there and fly. Thanks for the kind words and mention on Eps #125. Here's something you might find incredibly entertaining, ...

Re: UnControlled Blimps

That Cudjoe Key accident baffles me. The other half and I just completed our first flight to Key West from Tampa. For a VFR flight, the obvious choice was to pickup the Victor 157 airway and follow it in to Key West. Approach markers, a clean VOR path, all make it like a red carpet just leading you ...

Re: Our first vacation with aviation... EYW

Jeb, it was an awesome trip. Trips to new places, for me, are like re-living my first solo x-country! (except maybe each time I'm a tiny bit better prepared)
