    Many have suggested you might be getting another call from the FAA, Br-Y-an.
    But I think it might be your CFI who gets the call this time. ;)

    Keep us posted.

    I asked her multiple times "Are you sure you want to open yourself up to this?"
    She is going on to an airline so I gave her many reasons to avoid this project.

    I agree with your sentiments fully. I try to make sure that I have a friends list entirely (or almost entirely) consistent of people who I actually know and have had personal contact with - if not people I've met people I've interacted with long enough online. There are few exceptions, but very few. I get a lot of friend requests from pilots and animal rescue people who I have no idea who they are.

    I've debated whether I want to do the two Facebook profiles (one for animal rescue "friends"), and my decision for that has been no. It's just too much work to switch back and forth and I'm trying to reduce that workload, not increase it. So There's the Cloud Nine Facebook page that I manage and I just have the one account profile.

    For me, the real benefit of Facebook is being able to keep up with a number of my friends and family who are scattered around the world and otherwise wouldn't be able to keep up with as well.

    Actually, what you can do is set up "pages." These are business, author, whatever (Youtuber counts) pages that look like separate accounts but aren't. You can set up a Just Plane Silly page under your account and all your JPS friends and aviation friends you either don't know or hate can join it, and then get rid of the riff raff on your personal page.

    It seems to be pretty secure for me. My personal FB is boring and you wouldn't want to bother with it. My author page however is like crazy. Well not the page itself but the feedback.

    I would pay extra, too, to avoid doing lazy sevens and chandeliers. I just hate doing those.

    BTW, what kind of light were you using, Bryan, when you had the black background. Was that a ring light?

    2 soft boxes and a ring light + a green screen.
    I am downgrading for simplicity.

    I bought this thing and it does a damn good job on the cheap. Insanely bright (though adjustable, Warm and bright, long battery life):

    I think the Yellow Jacket Flying Club even lists old George as one of their instructors.

    I wouldn't be surprised to learn he has his CFI cert. He's quite an impressive guy. During WWII he was on a bomber crew in Europe at the same time he was serving in a submarine in the Pacific.

    Maybe I should try doing that, although I figure with nearly 17k Cloud Nine fans on Facebook I just don't see much of a point there. Although I may be looking at it wrong. I'm also lazy when it comes to that stuff and I don't think I have any kind of fame or notoriety.

    All that said, the conversation sparked me to go through my Facebook profile and purge a bunch of "friends." My profile had ballooned to nearly 500 friends after having been more around 400 for some time. While I use Facebook to keep in touch with people I don't see often and keep paths of communication open with some people (mostly for more morbid reasons like knowing when a classmate or mutual friend died or is hospitalized, etc.), there were a lot of people who I think just sent me friend requests because I was a pilot or they knew who I was for whatever reason, but I couldn't tie them to any identity on PoA or elsewhere. A lot of people I've never met in person, or if I've met them I've forgotten, never interact with online.

    Something else I slept on but decided to do anyway was unfriend some of my friends who'd passed away and were people who I was friends with, but was never close friends with and if our paths separated, I wouldn't have stayed friends with. Debatable whether that makes sense or not, but unless you think the afterlife has Facebook, you probably aren't using it for two-way communication.

    Anyway, I feel better with how my friends list looks now, although there are a few others on there I'm not sure about being on there.
