    Deferring Marriage and a Family to fly professionally

    I think a good family oriented woman is harder to come by than the flying career. Lock down the gal, and aviation will happen, even if delayed.

    Deferring Marriage and a Family to fly professionally

    Are the parents in town and they can help out if you're a traveling pilot? And is she a keeper? Supportive, committed, etc? If so, the grass isn't always greener. But if you don't see a wife and kids for another 10 years, you owe it to her to say something now. If it were me, and she was...

    Envy and victim status are powerful forces the political class loves to exploit for votes.

    Wealth Distribution in America

    Don't forget the top 1% is a fluid group. Despite the popular images of fat cats sitting in 1920's tuxedos, lighting cigars with $100 bills, people move in and out of this group regularly.

    I thought the definition of rich was owning an airplane. That's what I've been told many times, so it must be true.

    Wealth Distribution in America

    This is actually a great point. A lot of discussion on income inequality, but if you look at the standard of living young adults have today vs 40 years ago, it's vastly improved. Cars, cell phones, food deliveries, on demand entertainment, etc.

    Wealth Distribution in America

    I think part of the growth of the top .1% is tech billionaires. Generations prior you had to be a manufacturer or oil company tycoon. Grind out your growth through manual labor and product manufacturing. Now you can invent something digitally and boom, welcome to the zillionaire club.

    Youtube Pilot and her dad perish in TN

    I'm wondering if they were both affected by carbon monoxide, and not fully functioning. As an example from the report: "During the final moments of the flight, a faint communication from the pilot stating the airplane's registration and "Debonaire" followed by an emergency declaration and an...

    Do you regret giving up flying?

    Start that new chapter. My Dad's health took a bad turn earlier than they expected, so many things my Mom and Dad wanted to do in retirement they couldn't. Buy that RV and get going! And if you hate it? Sell the RV and start plane shopping again, or join a flying club!

    Trying to figure out the purpose of several, apparently methodical drops and climbs. Stall practice? Mechanical issue? other?
