    Yep. It's ironic to read his screed about how other companies kiss up to Cirrus because of their advertising money, THEN read his own filing about what he was willing to do for Cirrus in exchange for the airplane.

    His content have always been determined by who will kiss up to him. When they stop, the glowing recommendations go to condemnation in a hurry.

    Well... let's just say the Pulitzer committee will probably NOT be calling.

    Though there's hope for the Bulwer-Lytton contest....

    And knowing how while Cirrus was supposedly advertising on ANN they were teh angles absolutely everywhere, including sponsoring the Oshkosh coverage.

    I imagine that Alan Klapmeier finally made whatever deal to get him out of his hair.

    I have had a link to this thread saved in my bookmarks for a few years now. I noticed it again in my bookmarks today and, before deciding whether to delete it, gave it another look. While I have lurked for years, I do not believe I have ever commented. The recent link to his diatribe about the litigation compelled this comment, if only to literally laugh out loud at his description of how things went down and how he "won." I think I'll keep the bookmark for future entertainment (and other?) purposes. Keep up the good work.

    After spending the better part of the last couple of weeks working my way through this thread (as well as most of the linked documents), I find myself wondering who is crazier--Zoom or Bernath?

    If this thread was on paper, it would be a roll hanging in the bathroom.

    Well I came across this, and I'll just say with out specifics that either myself or someone I know was around this guy a whole lot. And boy are there some whoppers this dude has come up with. If you didn't know already he's friends with Harrison Ford and John Travolta. Plus the numerous and I mean numerous amount of aircraft he was a test pilot for. If you're interested in more let me know, hopefully someone still reacts to this old thread.
