Pretty close - it's spelled Bart, not Bard.
Schade. You'll find out tomorrow how bad my German really is. Or maybe I should just keep a lid on it.
I convinced my better half that we should get up early, so we are in too! To keep with the theme, after several days of not shaving the itch began. I could go with some stubble if I don't shave again though.
Windy shows a 60mph tailwind on the way there at 10k i don't even want to run the reverse numbers but gonna give it a go. Brining a friend who is at like 1470hrs and gonna start livin' the dream in January.
We'll be in the white and green skylane. I'll be wearing a hat with a sailfish and sporting my 5th covid beard to keep the theme going.
Looks like low ceilings are making the flight this morning a bit more interesting.
Forecast suggests it'll clear up by late morning.
Martin, it’s burning off quickly. I live 2nm north of 06C and it’s cavu
Perfect, thanks for the PIREP.
See you there!
I'm filing IFR just in case.
good luck. we're all counting on you.
also, if kaiser shows up with a flightchops beard can someone please pee in his lemonade? I assume that's what someone with a flightchops beard would drink........
Just got to KDPA and it’s cavu here too, might be lower W and SW of here?
and yes, I drive by a bunch of airports to get to where planes are to fly
Reservations at ten for ten under POA
Thanks! We’re on our way (doing approaches at C09 and C56 first)
Just arrived large table in far back
Had a great time!
I double checked and it looks like @Tom Robertson only held for 3 full trips waiting for the conga line. We got a vector as we were turning inbound on the 4th lap.
First fly-in I can recall where more people showed then said they would. Usually about half of the “yes’s” are “maybes” and most “maybes” are “no.” It was great meeting some people I’ve only met online and catching up with more from pasts fly-ins. Plus, I logged my first piloting a Piper, first twin, and first right seat (near) landing.
Looks like everyone had a great time!
Is someone going to tag the people in the photo?
Bummer Dr Chien was looking the other way in the pic. Was great to meet him and thank him in person for helping on my initial 3rd class.
That 310 looks even better right up close and sounded awesome taking off
If you go to the back of the photo starting on the left with the ugly guy in the hat and go clockwise:
Me, @Radar Contact , @Jim K , @masloki , non POA person, @Sinistar , friend of Sinistar, @keen9 , better half of keen 9, non POA person, @Martin Pauly , non POA, non POA, @kaiser , @bbchien
Actually I convinced non PoA person next to @masloki to sign up. He’s officially @Tom Robertson !
Awesome! Haven’t been active here in a long while until a month or three ago.
Basic Med behind me trying to get current after a 12-year break.
I look forward to figuring out the magic of flying when you want with a s/t project driven career and 3 kids.
Everyone else seems to have figured it out.
Looking north from my airplane. Carissa took a nice pano of the full ramp, but I need to get the original to make it a jpg.
A few stills from gopros:
Flew thru 20 minutes of light snow about half way between MSP and Chicago.
Was still looking IFR about 40 miles out but opened up just in time.
Turning final to 1C5 (wide angle makes it look farther and lower than it was)
Several walked out to meet Martin and Kevin who just landed.
Fermilab Tevatron on the right side heading back west.
We had much nicer weather coming from the south!
But as we got close there were airplane slicers pointing through that strip of low clouds!
I just got done editing the flight to our get-together back in December:
