    Grumman Tiger on med length grass fields?

    I've been out of the left seat for over a decade, but back then I had amassed about 100hrs in rental Grummans AA5's.. It did just fine on short, and on turf. Put in some flaps, full throttle, and lift off with the stall horn blaring felt like it was climbing like a homesick angel. Felt like we...

    Or walk up underneath the last surviving one... It was still leaking hydraulic fluid last time I took the tour.

    MRI question.

    Doing the 6 scans (3 without and 3 with gadolinium) the big issue is table time.. Not so much the contrast. They can do the brain, T spine and L spine without, then inject and do the 3 studies all over again for with.. one dose of contrast. Bam. Done. It lasts for a while. Time is the problem...

    Grumman Tiger, good bad and ugly

    This.. All of this... I have about 75 hours in rental Tigers and Cheetahs.. Almost as fast as an Arrow II on less horsepower, with gear hanging out in the breeze. Great visibility. Flies like a champ. Did several cross countries with a wing leveler. One of the very few certificated/factory built...

    My wife wants me to take her to New Orleans

    Actually, no... its not. A hotel room is a place to sleep.. It needs to be clean, safe, up to date, and close to what I want to do, at a reasonable price. I like what I like, and these places I like give me what I want at the price point I like. And I've stayed in many places. Including yours...

Biggest factors in my experiene, over multiple houses and multiple years - Age of the AC equipment, quality of the insulation of the...

    Sleep Apnea and 3rd Class medicals or BasicMed

    Its not "covered" as you put it.. It is NOT specifically EXCLUDED as other disqualifying conditions are. So by being NOT EXCLUDED, you dont have to worry about sleep apnea specifically, only that your endorsing physician is comfortable that you are safe enough to pilot knowing you are treated...
