    Is it just my imagination or has there been a recent uptick in the number of IFR related questions on PoA?

    If I am not imagining it, I have to take that as a good sign - nice to see it, and all the responses from experienced pilots here. :thumbsup:

    You are imagining. I'd suggest posting that as a thread topic in it's own thread, but that suggestion would be worthy of it's own thread, so I won't.

    Only if you are using an iPad with syn viz and a digital AHRS input. Otherwise it's probably contrary to the FARs and you risk the same fate as Martha Lunken.

    Any one else have that one tower/ground guy who's known to all at the airport as "mumbles"? The one CFI's won't let their students do a first solo if he's on duty?

    No. But there was one tower controller that was quite talkative... made it, ahem, interesting to get a word in edge-wise.

    The tower controllers at my home airport don't suffer from this. They all bark sharply at the students to make sure they understand how the commander-commanded relationship works. The only mumbling is the students doing so under their breath.

    Your snide remark is not worthy of it’s own thread.

    On second thought, maybe we need a good ’snide remark’ thread.

    We need to start a new section called “FAA Rules for Pedantrics”. You could sign up to either 1) participate earnestly or 2) participate anonymously as a troll stirring the pot, citing rules you just made up, obscure logic, and the always popular “I heard from an FAA official”.

    With plenty of OWTs and misinterpreted regs — I believe you just described...

    The Internet. And every aviation site.

    I think he got fired at our field. Contract tower.

    I don't know if it is still the case, but customer orientation is/was important here. And I've seen examples where it worked very well, too.

    especially when you are busting someone's chops about their epaulets.
    Somewhere in one of my junk drawers I have a set with 10 stripes on them and they stick out about 4 inches past my shoulders.
    I would wear them into the CRM office occasionally to torque a couple of pilots.

    Still drones! A company that does drone-based solar inspections worldwide with a few thousand network pilots. I'll be internal though, helping to smooth their operations and data collection procedures.

    Work-from-anywhere, startup style company, pretty promising overall.

    Not wishing to appear pedantric, but all earnestness (<-- is that a real word?) I heard from an FAA official it's misspelled. ;)

    I know exactly of whom you speak. I actually learned more as a student when Mumbles was in the tower as I had to be on my toes for a wrong instruction. Did you mean LEFT downwind?

    I have to stop looking at trade a plane. The price explosion is getting to be too depressing.

    Finding open slots on rental aircraft is getting impossible now on the weekends.

    I wonder where this new demand and supply set of pressures will settle out.

    It's been snowing steadily all weekend. :(
    Waiting for it to stop before I plow the driveway.

    Tomorrow forecast high is 53 just in time to go back to work.:mad:
