Re: hey dude, show me your gun!

Let me speak as someone from the inside of the airline business. There is a limit to what I can say because of the confidentially of the program. My "office" is the right seat of a 767 and I routinely fly with other pilots who are in the FFDO program. Contrary to the assertion of the previ...

Re: Budget bird of the week

With apologies to Champ fans, let me take the Budget Bird topic away from the Champ into another direction. My observation is that most of the 4-place airplanes out there fly off our airport with one or two people aboard. It seems to me that unless you have to fly for business and need an aircraft o...

OFLotW History - Splashdown!

UCAP Gang, Here's a little off field landing of the week history. This didn't happen last week, last year, or even last decade, but back on November 22, 1968. That morning, a Japan Air DC-8-62 arriving from Tokyo was on approach to San Francisco's runway 28L when it "landed" 2 miles short ...

Re: Is the UCAP Podcast too long ?????

What determines whether the podcast is too long or too short is the content. If the content is lacking in "beef" then it's too long. If not, that it is just right. In my opinion, the UCAP podcast is just right. Keep up the good work guys, and let us know when we can put a few dollars into ...

Re: Wild Idea: A UCAP Fly-in

Let's try to do this. I think a UCAP Fly-in would be an excellent idea! Part of the formula for a successful fly-in is that the destination should have a draw of its own. Look for a destination that is somewhat central, but also has an appeal of its own. The two fly-in destinations my wife most enjo...

Re: 3-Zero Cafe at Half Moon Bay, CA

Gang, I've been to Half Moon Bay many times. Some of the most beautiful flying in our country can be had in this area - when it's not foggy! Keeping under the class B, I fly over the bay, past Alcatraz, along the San Francisco city shoreline, and over (not under!) the Golden Gate Bridge. You just ne...

Age 65 Rule

I'm catching up after the holidays and just listened to episode 60. There is confusion about the application of the age 65 rule. First, part 121 makes no distinction as to whether you are flying passengers or freight. The same rules apply to the operator if it is United carrying people in a 757 or U...

Barnstorm Cafe

A wise old flight instructor once gave me some good cross-country advice: Don't waste a lot of time and fuel climbing and descending for a fuel stop. You can sometimes save time, fuel and money by using a high elevation airport for a fuel stop - provided everything else about using that airport make...
