    The day has finally come....

    Well, that took longer than I planned. Due to various delays by the engine overhaul shop and my local shop the 6-8 week engine rebuilt was longer than 6 months. My lack of flying led me to become quite quiet on POA because coming here made me mad because I couldn’t fly! I’m happy to report...

    Charity Raffle Flight Questions

    Thanks @midlifeflyer , I was hoping you would respond as you are always so helpful navigating these regs! I see the notification and that shouldn't be a problem. I figure whoever wins the raffle we will set a date then I will send the required notice to the FAA. Seems to be a pretty...

    Charity Raffle Flight Questions

    I normally agree with you, just do the flight and don't worry about it, but if I'm advertising something through a raffle I want to make sure I'm good to do it. I've spent a lot $ and time getting my commercial, and don't feel like putting it in jeopardy.

    Charity Raffle Flight Questions

    Hey Guys, Quick question for all the regulatory buffs out there who go to sleep reading the FARs :) My 19 year old cousin died in a car accident last year obviously very tragically and unexpectedly. His father has organized a benefit with all proceeds going to his high school's athletic...

    172 replacement

    Yes, it's! I honestly cant wait to get it back. Hopefully will be posting about it soon and I'll include all costs for those who want to think about how awesome it is once it's time. In the mean time I've gotten a few multi hours so I can't really complain.

    How to navigate thunderstorms?

    Well that changes everything! If you can depart VFR and there is FL scattered type T-Storms the definitely go! You will learn a lot flying around them if you got somebody next to you who has that experience already.

    How to navigate thunderstorms?

    I'm going to put a little more caution here than most people. Based on your thoughts about using ADS-B to keep you out of trouble and the fact you stated you didn't think about @EdFred 's advice about staying BELOW the clouds, and the fact you are a brand new private pilot- if there is risk of...

    182 Operating Expenses

    This is pretty close to what we do. For my 79Q that I own with the other guys it's $100/hr + $250/mo. The hourly rate adjusts slightly if there is a large uptick in fuel prices. This is supposed to cover a OH fund however our engine decided it needed a OH before we planned it, so this year is...

    Tips for planning a "long" VFR-only XC

    Hmm...I love baseball, musuems, gambeling and eating. This may be a possible fly out desitation in the near future.

    Anti-venom flight during 9/11 shutdown

    Yep. Look at what happened in my home town during the Boston Marathon bombing. Literally shut down the city because of those lone creeps. No one questioned the government's authority to declare Marshall law. Scary... And the kicker was once they lifted it and people could actually go...
