Re: Attn Math whizzes

How many in a non-leap year is more interesting. Is it 31,556,925 or 31,556,925.1, or 31,536,000? Neither. You have to start with how many seconds are in a day? Is it 86164.1 or 86,400? According to the United States Naval Observatory (the go to for all things time related): "That is, the length of...

Rally For Our Rights - Pro-Gun Billboards

Couldn't find it so... Have never heard of Rally For Our Rights (or forgot if I did). They have a Go Fund Me account to put up pro-gun billboards, currently in Colorado.

Re: New Instructor Training Questions

Completed the class yesterday, some after-action thoughts: ... The PowerPoint from the RSD is ATTROCIOUS! Covering 46.035(b) including (b)(4)(5)(6) and (c) and then not going over subsection (i), which basically voids those locations unless notice is given under 30.06 or .07. Same thing with coveri...

Re: Las Vegas Tower Controller suffers a stroke

I have not seen anything else that says it was a stroke but she has left the FAA. From the Los Vegas Review Journal, earlier today: "A representative of the agency didn’t say Monday whether the controller resigned or was fired nor whether its investigation of the incident has been concluded, citing ...
