    Depends on what sort of time they get and how long.

    I wouldn't; said congresscritter would likely want enhanced airport security.

    All they needed for training was how to utilize the AOA indicator, right?

    If that dude in SEA learned to fly a Dash8/Q400 that way, flying a bugsmasher after MSFS flight school can't be that hard.

    Why did we all spend so much money on our training over the years?

    I am sure they will father children, but I would bet they won't be fathers to their children.

    Too early to say how those kids will turn out. Perhaps their little flight in that plane will inspire them to clean up their act and set new goals of becoming certified pilots. After all, they’re only 14 and 15 years old and their life story is not completely written yet.

    Some people do eventually grow up.

    My dad got caught joyriding in a 182 when he was aa teenager. Him and his buddy would claim over the divider between my grandpas hangar and the 182 to gain access.

    Flew it for a couple years with his teenage buddies. Took it up in a snow storm and flew too low over town. Cops came to airport and he was finally caught and arrested. Judge ordered him to wash dishes in the owners bar until he paid off all the tach time he flew. Ended up working for that guy for a few more years.

    Owner was just pleased to finally have an answer as to how his tach time kept climbing but his fuel level never changed. The early 1980s were a little more forgiving.

    I tell everyone that merely "steering" an airplane in relatively calm conditions is much easier than driving a car. Because it is.

    I’m afraid I still don’t understand how his tach time climbed and his fuel never changed. Unless they were buying him gas, which seems odd.
