    We need a class action suit against the POA Pilots of America

    Obviously, we cannot sue a message board directly, but here is what I propose we do: 1. We use the Chat GPT to demand a list of all pilots posting in the HT LMFJD 2. We use the Chat GPT to demand a detailed record of the number of posts being liked /replied for each poster 3. If the poster in...

    I reported a taxiway incursion this morning

    A coyote ran past my mother's back door the other night. A really big one, about the size of a large German Shepherd dog. She lives in a town with lots of families with children.

    the "not worthy of it's own thread" thread

    Ok, I just saw the youtube clip where Norm does stand up on David's show "for the last time." His ending bit (before the break) was very touching.

    the "not worthy of it's own thread" thread

    YouTube thinks I want to watch Norm Macdonald videos. So I've gone down the rabbit hole when he got fired from Saturday Night Live and now I think I like him. He was very genuine during an interview with David Letterman. David Letterman was pumping him to throw NBC under the bus and leave...

    Bakin' Bacon

    Using parchment paper instead of foil is cheaper and just as effective. At 375 how long do you bake it?

    Is Dan Gryder the biggest asset to aviation on youtube?

    Shrug. I like the forest and at times have spent a long enough in them to need to release waste and thus expose delicate parts to hungry mosquitoes. I never thought my love of hiking in the forest was a poor decision or crazy behavior. Probably an obvious counter argument that didn’t need to...

    What is the most fun "Aviation tool/gear" you've purchased?

    Snip Does she put her front paws on the center housing on the foot pegs?

    T-Hangar neighbor. WWYD?

    Ah bummer. I was hoping they’d seen the light.

    Do you plan on flying (or traveling in general) to see the eclipse on April 8th?

    Alas, my plan to fly the 182 to Arkansas to see my brothers and the eclipse is blocked by the clouds. It would have been 10 hours and two fuel stops, but I was really looking forward to the flight. We were also going to fly from his town to an airport in the totality zone on the day of the...

    Can you jump a 12V plane battery with a car?

    That is how the 182 is set up as well. When I plug into the port on the side, there’s an audible click, the voltage indicates, the gyro spins. Snip Yeah so if I ever have help, I ask the helper to stand on the brakes once the plane is started while I disconnect cables and move the vehicle...

    Can you jump a 12V plane battery with a car?

    Our cables are long enough that the car remains behind the wing and the propeller and wing will not hit the car if it rolls forward. I also chock the pilot-side main before jump-starting.

    Can you jump a 12V plane battery with a car?

    Our club 182 has the jumper cables with an adapter on the side of the front cowling. When I plug in the jump box, I can hear the gyro spinning up.

    Can you jump a 12V plane battery with a car?

    i agree, a battery dead after a period of disuse makes sense. But after flying for a couple of hours, I would expect the battery to be recharged enough to start the plane.

    Sharp Turn During Cruise - Foreflight Message

    Why not? I like to flight plan. It's fun. Putting the details into ForeFlight helps figure out how long the flight will be, get a flight briefing, check for notams, TFRs.

    Sharp Turn During Cruise - Foreflight Message

    On that flight, once flying south down the Hudson, after crossing into the water way beyond the Verrizzano-Narrows Bridge, I turn around and fly up the Hudson River to give the pax a chance to see the other side of the view. Southbound they look at New Jersey. North Bound they look at...

    Total Solar Eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024

    I had noticed that 3M0 is in the path. However, I can't land at grass strips. I'm looking at Holly Mountain Airpark (2A2) who says they don't have much room for parking planes and it is first come first served. I think they also do not have fuel. I also spoke with Searcy County (4A5) who...

    the "not worthy of it's own thread" thread

    My preference usually it has to do with additional turbulence. Where are the trees / hangars / buildings / mountains , to the left or to the right? Crab then Kick. Left Pattern.
