    Tower told me to report 4 mile final. I reported I was 4 mile final when I was actually 3 miles out. Discuss.

    I like the turn this thread has taken. The previous horse was most definitely beaten to a bloody pulp. Seeing what unfolds with this possible matchmaking is way more interesting.

    Coincidently I was given instruction for a 15 mile straight in, report 4 mile final in a Delta today. Couldn’t get a word in until 3.5 miles out. Should I be worried the FAA will come knocking on my door any minute?

    That is copyright infringement. Expect a certified mail from @SixPapaCharlie's law dogs.

    Perhaps you can negotiate a settlement that you spend $x on his merch,

    I assume you’re talking about the length since he bothered to post actual thoughts instead of sound bytes, and not the content. :)

    A friend of mine had just went through his second divorce. He had vowed that he was finished with women.

    A few months later his dad introduced his dental hygienist to his son.

    And they have been happily married ever since....

    :lol::lol::lol: That did kind of sound funny after reading it again....

    I should have also added that dads' dental hygienist is female and is the one that married the son....

    To make it clearer, dad and son did not marry...:rofl:

    You didn't have to worry about that, until now.

    I did you a favor and reported you. You know.... for your own good.

    [Glen, please don't do anything different. I'm a commercial pilot with dual and multi instrument ratings...and i love your vids. I did catch the cutoff short and didn't think anything of it...that is until you pointed it out. Something so silly...please keep doing what you're doing. And i do have only one question...can i get ride in that empty right seat? david yorke, Toronto.

    I hatched this pilot's videos. They are very informative, and if given the chance I'd like to take a ride with him in that airplane.
    The way he explains things is very understandable. Im sure if you spend any time with him, he'l teach you something about being a pilot.

    Actually, a bot/troll (now zapped) revived the thread. Unfortunately people responded before those posts were deleted.

    Altho I have a GoPro, and a mount for the cherokee, I don't see much use for it while flying. Really now, is there a reason for another video landing/taking off at Leadville? Maybe when I start IFR training again...someday...in the future....this decade....this century....maybe....

    Actually, I do have one very good use....since I teach the Young Eagle ground school for our EAA chapter (well, someday, when we get back to running the YE program around here) I have the videos of each of our routes, so the kids can see what to expect.

    I never have been able to "eye ball" distances. Fortunately, between the DME and the iPad, I get a good estimate. Of course the DME is to the far end of the runway. No problem. Just subtract 8000 ft. (or do the trig equation....suuuuuuure)

    I saw what happened to Greg Mink who owns a Beech Jet N390GM who makes outstanding videos that are good instruction even for those who do not own Jets. Greg is very responsible and does not deserve the way the student pilot reported him to FAA. He would have been wiser had he first talked to a CFI or bounced it off experienced pilots. Greg operated very safely at a non controlled airport.

    Crap like this is why I never post flying videos to my YouTube channel. There is always some anal retentive jerk just waiting to try and screw you for some minor thing. The FAA are like police, if a call comes in, they have to investigate. Technically P1 made a minor error, hopefully this will go nowhere.

    4 miles from the departure end, the tower, or the approach end? 4 statute miles or 4 nautical miles?

    I don't care. I rarely post flying videos to my YouTube channel and when I do, it's usually a short segment. That has nothing to do with fearing some idiot or the FAA. Instead, it's because (select the best answer):

    (a) I'm too lazy to do all that editing.
    (b) My flights are not all that interesting.
    (c) I am not all that interesting.
    (d) All of the above ​

    Gasp! I did an 8 mile straight in to KPOU in the Cub last week, as per instructions from the tower. I called the final at 4.1 miles instead of 4.
    I better file some paperwork before they drag me out of the house and send me to Gitmo. :D

    I have to say the people in the tower were really pleasant, and accommodating. They told me stay on frequency, pick my turnoff and go straight to the diner without stopping.
    It had taken me almost an hour to fly the 44 miles from GBR to KPOU. And it was witchen,bitchen cold. Someone probably knew I needed a gallon of hot tea on my feet to thaw them out.

    You have to be very careful what you post on POA as well....I swear some people have nothing better to do than find fault with others.

    I landed behind a Cessna at CRE a few years ago...he announced clear the active and the tower chewed him out...told him that his radio call was not necessary...the pilot replied it was a habit he picked up in the military...several radio transmissions not helpful IMO.

    Do the Feds get mad when the laser is coming FROM the airplane cockpit instead of shined into it from the ground?
