    Evading interior border checkpoints by flying over them

    That was similar to what I was thinking. Plot is this guy that flies skydivers out of a border town, then it's approached by goons to fly illegals over the border. He then comes up with the idea of going up to 16k or so on a night with strong southerly winds, slump the illegals using static line.

    Another IT guy lost to Aviation

    I make money on convincing the customer that it ain't broke but it will break soon. And when it does, all the competitors will already be on the new thing. FOMO works like a charm.

    PC 12 Down off of NC Coast

    I've never read anything close to this. Almost could not believe the lack of familiarity with the AP, FMS and the fact that they tried to get flight VFR when conditions were not that great. Also, why not enter the flight plan on the ground? Awful decision to take off into marginal weather...

    FltPlan Go x Foreflight

    I use it on an iPad Mini. I first used it on an older iPad Mini but the app would crash every now and then, especially when superimposing the plates on the maps. I got a more recent iPad Mini and it hasn't crashed since.

    FltPlan Go x Foreflight

    I tried it and it doesn't work for me. I'm using an iPad mini, so maybe that's the reason?

    FltPlan Go x Foreflight

    Reving this thread now that I got my IR and CPL. I recently did a few flights using FF (trial, so no geo-ref plates). Things I really like about it compared to FltPlan Go: - Weather briefing: miles ahead of FPG. Very intuitive, easy to understand. Access to weather charts is very nice, easy to...

    How is Medical Examine Different for Commercial?

    When I renewed my 3rd class many years ago the AME said I would qualify for second class, so I got that since. He said my vision was the factor, being 20/20 with glasses while 3rd class had a lesser requirement.

    What's next after Commercial?

    That's a nice gig! Definitely something on my radar, although multi is not a requirement for it.
