Observing my track on Flight Aware I see the altitude and airspeed lines/graph are very jagged. The 335 I had in my Cherokee the lines are nice and smooth. The signal looks noisy. Is...

    What's Flying Like in Retirement?

    I retired 8 years ago at 56. Bought a plane in 2018 and have flown about 500 hours or so since then. Started with a Cherokee, then went to a C-140 and now a C-150. Just bumping through time going nowhere fast. A herd of turtles makes better way lol... As for your new found time, it will pass...

    Ceramic coating

    AeroColor used to own my 75 C-150 a few years back. They applied a ceramic coat to 25 year old paint. It looks really good and as others have said, makes for quick work removing bugs post flight.

    The pizza never fares well on the flight home. The smell is unbearable so I cave. Interesting you mention Ohio Co. I was up with Evansville when I passed by there at 11:05. Is that your plane on the ramp? I was a 4500' with the Iphone

    PA28 down near Gainesville, FL

    Indeed. I remember some weather briefings by phone where he would say "VFR flight not recommended". I think there's value there.

    Fighter Pilot looking for advice on the GA world

    Take a look at the Cherokee Six. If you can get it in the doors it will haul it. Although it would likely blowout the top of your budget.

    Looks like VOR is back on the menu boys...

    As long as we have ILS and of course the VOR approaches I don't see them completely going away. Although I do have to fly a bit to reach airports that still offer the ILS etc.
