Re: Technical Pitot Question/Assumption.

Dave, Check this out: http://www.flightsim.com/feature/atwcdk5/image025.jpg It appears to me that at least in this case, the drain is designed in such a way that no negative pressure would be created. Plus it's so small that I would think any amount would be negligible. I just did a quick search on ...

Re: Eye examination

I would recommend posting this question over at http://www.pilotsofamerica.com as well. There are a couple of people over there that are AME's and would be glad to offer their insight on this matter.

Re: who do you fly with?

Sadly, I haven't done much flying myself recently. My non-pilot significant other has only flown with me once, and that was the weekend after I got my license. Most often, I serve as my mentor's copilot in the Bonanza, or I'll take some friends up for some sight-seeing and a $100 hamburger. I typica...

Re: Unique Problems Landing Off Field

Re: Lawnchair Larry

I just remember the A-Team episode where they pulled this off to escape from a prison - I didn't realize it was an actual event! Your recounting of it made me chuckle.

Re: Getting Non-Aviator friends interested in flying

Yeah, sadly some people just don't "get it". That's why I pretty much have two sets of friends - my fellow airplane junkies, and then the non-flyers. Now, I'm fortunate in that my non-flyer friends are almost always willign to come out to the airport and go flying with me, but you won't fi...

Re: Flight Planning Software V1.2.9

Here's a suggestion, and I'm not sure if you can make this work... I know that with FlightAware, you can set it up to alert you via email or SMS text message when a flight plan for a certain flight # or tail # has been filed. The cool part about this is that it will text you the actual route assigne...
