Re: The Great Southeast UCAP Meetup 2.0 (4/10/10)

A Tiki Room and a warm dry sunny day in Florida... The weather here closed in again after another one day window that would have had me stuck two days and a mountain range short of a good time. You all have fun, and play nice and safe out there. :cry: Winter has been pretty crummy here too (at leas...

Hey - good idea Hunter...
If anyone in the Tampa / St. Pete area wants to brave a flight with me... I have a right seat open. :D

Re: Plane ditches in Tampa Bay

This was all the buzz around here when it happened. Because it was so close, friends at work were running up and asking if I had heard about the woman who "crashed" her Cessna into the bay. My reply was "No, I haven't heard about that. But I did hear about a woman who made a very succ...

Re: What are the odds

I saw this. It's a bizarre and sad story. Someone sent me the link in work, someone who also revels in sending me all of the "little airplane crash" stories. :roll: Given the guise under which he sent it to me... my response was: "This is just unbelievable. We need to pass some law on...

Re: Episode #173 "15 Knots of Tail"

Regarding the comments Jeb made about the Tampa (FL) airspace, I concur. I fly in the Tampa airspace all the time. I find the approach and departure controllers to be awesome... and most helpful. They are keenly aware of a congested GA airspace around the big iron they are controlling. In fact, they...

Re: headsets

I just replaced my Lightspeed 20XLc's with Zulus. The 20 XLc was a good ANR headset, but very BIG and bulky... and they tended to clamp a bit after 2 hours. The Zulu's are remarkable. The ANR is superb, the bluetooth is a welcome feature and they are supremely comfortable. I have tried the DC's, the...

Re: The food is better.

BTW... Dave- regarding your beer-of-the-month club...

While we were down in Key West, we found ourselves at Irish Kevin's bar. Great place.
Got a chance to try Magic Hat Ale (from Vermont, I'm told).
If you haven't tried this... It's highly recomended!!!
