4++g's

Postby rainsux » Tue Jun 08, 2010 4:25 pm

Back when the earth's crust was still warm and sticky, I had the
pleasure of an FSDO Inspector riding along to check the DPE
that was checking me for my MES checkride. Everything was
being done very slowly, thoroughly and deliberately.

The FSDO Inspector decided to rifle my first logbook ... and
noticed that while a student pilot, I had written " 4++g's " in
the Comments. He demanded an explanation of something
I had written 25+ years before.

Finally it dawned on me ... at the time, everything I wrote,
was in lowercase. I had printed " 4 t+g's " ... but he was
quite certain the lowercase 't' was really a '+' sign.

He was still yammering about it while the DPE typed up my
new white slip.

Keep it that way, much safer.
