    New case against flight tracking

    I blocked mine immediately after receiving a call or text every time I flew somewhere. I’d get a creepy message.. “ Oh I see you’re back in FL, TX, NY, etc. what you up to…?” This was from someone with no reason or business to monitor me or my family’s whereabouts. For safety, I would never post...

    Thank goodness for ADS-B in and Foreflight

    Flight following is great, I recommend always using FF when VFR of any significant distance. Really scary when using FF, panel ADSB, and flight following and still so difficult to visually find other craft. I prefer every possible resource to to increase my odds. When using all the available...

    Rental Car hint/tip/gripe/trick/review/kvetch Thread

    Turo has always brought the vehicle to the FBO, left the keys in a hidden spot or lockbox on the vehicle. They typically send a pic of the vehicle and where parked so it’s easy to locate. I always get their cell to text directly with for any issues. Many of the Turo operators have multiple...

    Rental Car hint/tip/gripe/trick/review/kvetch Thread

    Turo has been very good across multiple locations. I even found Turo’s last minute for OSH and Sun N Fun this year when no other cars were to be found. I’ve used them from FL to AK and have met some really nice local people at the same time. Each time I’ve asked, they’re happy to have the car...

    Ceramic coating

    I had it applied by on my Saratoga. It wasn’t cheap but was well worth the investment. I am extremely “particular” and have a pretty good eye for paint defects. Bob is an absolute artist. He works magic on planes beyond what I would think is even possible...

    SI for misdiagnosis of Bipolar Disorder

    It is no wonder pilots are so cautious to share any concerns they have about any issues. How frequent is a misdiagnosis of this type in the general population?

    Long haul flying - what a PITA

    The 33.8 hour flight sounds incredible. That story could be a great thread alone. Have you shared that story somewhere on here yet?

    Long haul flying - what a PITA

    My wife’s dad worked for TWA. They’d go to the airport pick whatever flight was open and go for the weekend. She went to Paris, France for the weekend. She was in grade school and the teacher asked them to write what they did on their weekend. The teacher accused her making up a fake story...

    The weather briefer earned his money today

    I always complete my own briefs using multiple resources but also always appreciate the second opinion from a briefer. Some seem newer and less willing to offer anything more than what they read. However, many of the briefers are awesome and provide excellent insights. Just as with all...

    It’d be interesting to hear the pilot explain the ADM process leading up to this situation.

Opposite the pattern is an aerobatics box where N42XM was being flown by one of the planes three new owners and a seasoned aerobatics instructor. My son was on the radio with N42XM while in the pattern. My son had landed and was debriefing his...

    PA28 down near Gainesville, FL

    There was something else not reported. A close friend of mine was flying AAL3676 in the area while this was happening and heard the dialogue between the pilot and ATC on 121.5. The pilot advised his AI was inop. It was unclear if it was that way when he took off or had failed in flight. The last...
