    Did not know about ADHD restrictions when I got my medical. What do I do?

    If I were king. I would eliminate all FAA medicals. The system doesn't work anyway. Before someone chimes in with I don't want to share the sky with people who are unfit...Let's face it if you have enough money and time you can almost get an SI for just about any condition. If you are...

    Plastic welding

    I have a 1976 Apache Camper. It is a hard sided pop-up. A large portion of the camper is ABS plastic. The standard repair method is to melt ABS with MEK/MEK Substitute/Acetone to make a slurry. You can then repair the part with the slurry.

    Dan Gryder Lockheed Electra Crash

    For a self proclaimed safety expert he has been in a lot of accidents. I am inclined to do the opposite of what he says. ETA: I do hope everyone recovers quickly

    How important is switching to Apple OS?

    I use Avare. It is free and android only. As a computer professional my stance is the same on these applications as it is on the IOS Android discussion. If you understand the concepts learning a specific OS or application is not that difficult. I work in multiple operating systems everyday...

    Pilot arrested for DUI blows .00

    My response the few times I have been asked this is, "No, but I bet you are about to tell me." Followed by their question, "Where are you coming from and where are you headed." Me, "(pointing behind me) from there, (pointing ahead of me) that way". It's none of their business where I have...

    Electric Lawn Tools

    I am mixed on electric and gas for small yard tools. For the lawn there really isn't an electric option that will work tell that to the states that want to ban all gas equipment. We have 2 acres and it is pretty hilly so zero turn is not an option. It takes about 3 hours on the riding lawn...

    Flying with retired pilots

    Troll thread? I had 20+ years off took about 7 hours to get back to flying solo. The first thee hours I was wondering why it wasn't clicking. Then all of sudden it did and I was back. That was over 10 years ago haven't looked back. 7X50= $350 I think that is probably worth the price even...

    how much risk flying in windy conditions

    Return to flying after heart attack?

    Did you drive a car to the cardiologist? Did he say whether you could drive or not? Just asking. :stirpot: My plan is the same as yours. Fly basic med until I can't. Then fly LSA until I can't or possibly shouldn't any more. Mosaic will make the LSA part more comfortable. Also want to say...
