Re: Sun 'n Fun "UCAP Daily" Feedback

I absolutely loved the daily episodes. I felt the length was ideal - enough for the content but not so long that I wasn't able to keep up each day. Furthermore, under NO circumstance should you take away the background noise. Listening to you guys talk about aviation while somebody's obviously pushi...

Re: Episode #164 "Three Airplanes"

OK here's my three (with a wildcard) 1. Piper Meridian - (a smaller turboprop, get me anywhere I'd want to go, made in the USA) 2. Legend Cub - (I'd say Super Cub here, but most of my time on ground will be spent on #3) 3. Kind of a wildcard, but the third spot in my dream hangar would host a homebu...

Long IFR to NY

Had a nice and educational flight a couple of weeks ago. It started when my wife wanted to travel to upstate NY to help her grandmother prepare to move. Living in central Ohio I considered the options - she can drive 12-14 hours, take a human mailing tube, or I can take this one year old instrument ...

Re: How About a Passenger Logbook for Kids?

I've done this for my kids. I started with a couple of those starter logbooks you get when you take one of those intro flights at a flight school. It didn't take too long for me to fill up those books, though. Since then I've started to use the software that came with my old Garmin 196. Using that I...

Re: Botched IFR clearance

Thanks for your input. There's something about these type of events that shakes ones confidence. Although recently IFR rated, I've been a pilot for 15 years and I still continue to constantly learn new things. That's why spend all this time lurking on these forums and listening to podcasts ... there...

Botched IFR clearance

The other day I filed IFR in pursuit of the $100 hamburger. I'm flying /u, so when filing I gave my route going from one vor (APE) to another (CTW) to an intersection (ATWOO), then my final destination (TSO). Once in the air, I called approach control and requested clearance for my IFR flight plan. ...
