What is it with these dudes calling clear of the active before crossing the hold lines?
You mean because there's no active runway at a non-towered field?
Deja vu all over again.
crazy kids these days.......
I agree that he should have been off the runway and more correctly past the hold line, but turn him in? Really? It wasn’t as if he was at DFW, or O’Hare.
I'd recommend against it, Micaiah. It could change your life, and not for the better.
I'd be far more inclined to report him for the checkerboard hangar floor that doesn't match his new paint job.
Standards that low from PoAers shouldn't be tolerated.
Personally I prefer to call clear of the active about mid flight...just to keep the traffic flowing faster.
Oh lord, he is so unsafe, he should have his licenses revoked and give that plane away.
I'm more bothered by when he raised the gear. Neither the Altimeter nor the VSI showed what I'd call a "positive rate."
POA, where we eat our own.
Well.....if both he and his wife weren’t controllers....
I already sent a message to the federal air surgeon regarding possible MPD based on his use of "we" on the radio while flying solo.
if only he was looking outside where he could actually see his plane climbing, including that big giant shadow showing a clear climb. also, yadda yadda yadda, something about lag in a VSI.........
I am not too concerned about the call before the hold lines, but he should have at least been off the runway. Also, I saw him cleaning things up before he exited the runway. That sort of thing COULD possibly lead to inadvertently hitting the gear switch instead of the flaps. Best left until after clearing the runway and on the taxiway.
And to Tarheel’s comment, severe VFR, whatever. It wasn’t really unsafe as long as he kept moving. IIRC, ATC at a towered field is allowed to call the runway clear as long as the aircraft is clear of (not past the hold lines) and moving away from the runway.
Turn everyone in then I will have the sky to myself.
Why do I get the feeling some here still haven't figured out who it is, LOL...
I was being sarcastic
I forget no one can see my laughing when they read my posts.
What is the significance of the holding position markings at a non-towered airport?
Same as a towered field.
Well, he is wearing a UGA (sic) hat!
The rest of you need your sarcasm/humor meters calibrated.
Maybe they are aspirational.
Too much time on your hands.
For the day when they do build a tower, the markings will already be there.
So I can't cross that line at a non-towered field without a clearance. I've been doing it wrong for years, I guess.
I’d report him. What an unprofessional display of airmanship and blatant disregard of safety/governing regulations.
Better yet...y’all tie him up to the stake and I’ll grab the matches.
Whatever you decide to do to him, don't hurt the plane!!!
The sound and vid were not sync’ed.
yup. Never saw him clap.
NEVER publish the clap, lol!
...or that the original post was tongue-in-cheek. Seemed to be a few serious answers.
Yeah, but there's not so much a lag in the altimeter. I'm all for pulling up the gear early, but that was way earlier than I would be comfortable with. The needle on the altimeter hadn't moved perceptably either. I watched the thing a couple of times.
In my videos, it always seems like I’m pulling up the gear too soon. Looks totally different in real life, real-time.
Please don't, I won't do it agian
22:42 to get to the sister.
Only if the pilot said rudders
