    If someone is flying overhead, and I'm on the ground with a handheld radio watching for traffic, can I log PIC time as safety pilot?

    Of course you can. But the FCC only cares if you have a radio license on you.

    You gotta try some of the other trades tapes, like electrician and painter’s. Or even that single-malt Scotch.

    If I put a humidifier and a dehumidifier in the same room, will I open a wormhole?

    Nah, you just make the power company happy.

    Pro tip: Run the drain line from the dehumidifier into the water reservoir of the humidifier.

    Sure, just don't ask me to repeat anything. Because I am presently incapable of rendering another artillery barrage.

    I probably should have clarified that last statement.

    What new amphib is better than a 206 on aerocets, with G1000 nxi panel, for the same or less money?

    And why did avocado on toast become a fad?

    1. Icon A5. But, refine your definition of 'better'.

    2. I heard it started at 69Y.

    To placate displaced Californians.

    1, actually. For significantly, figure 5 mils per application and do the math.

    Ooohhh no, the Icon is a step backward.
    Better would be quicker, more range, more space inside, increasing payload. Caravan, or Kodiak would be great, if not so outrageously expensive.

    Here's the thing... I can go fly an Icon... right now. Well okay, not literally right now, but I'm a 45 minute drive from Vacaville, so in theory, I could probably be up in a demo flight by early afternoon. A 206 float plane? I need to get a Basicmed worked out, plus I don't have a seaplane rating. I guess if I operate it on land only I don't need one, I'm not sure how that works out.

    Like I said, define better. The Icon fits in my garage. The 206 on floats? Not so much. If the thing would cost a quarter of what it does, I might even bite.
