Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) from China: Its going to be bad.

I recently got Engaged. We are planning the wedding for June 2021. I joked with her that we should move the wedding forward. With groups limited to 10 or less, we'd save a ton on food and booze.

Re: Any pilots in here?

Since this thread started a friend of mine called me up, said let's go flying and I said sure. We got to Northwest Regional, he pulled out a 172, threw me into the left seat and made me do everything until we landed (and he asked if I wanted to land :shock:) Talk about task saturation and getting t...

Re: Any pilots in here?

I now have my Third Class Medical and my Student Pilot's Certificate. I have a few hours in the air in both a 172 and an Archer II. The weather, some bouts of flu, Strep and family issues on both my side and the Instructor has kept me out of the air for the past two months. I've decided to focus on ...

Misdemeanor DV conviction

It seems that whenever a new crowd finds out I'm an instructor I get tons of questions about licensing. I had someone ask me last night at a Super Bowl party about a DV disqualification. He had a Misdemeanor DV in 1992. He wanted to know if there was a time frame where it wouldn't be a disqualificat...

Re: The war with Iran

Did he have the quote - we have awakened a sleeping giant. Older friend went to Pearl Harbor many years back. On the boat to the Arizona he sat next to a solemn Japanese man and his wife. He asked why he was coming here. To pay my respects. Because of this event many of my friends and relatives die...

Re: TX: Dallas LTC holder fends off robbers at home cookout

Ironically enough, my wife just gave me grief for carrying during a barbeque at my house. My daughter is headed back to college today, so I decided to smoke a brisket for her on Sunday. My wife took a picture of me carving up the meat, and posted it to Facebook, where she immediately got comments b...

Re: Any pilots in here?

What airplane did you like best. I learned in a Cherokee 140 back in 1967. I have always preferred a low wing over a high wing. Where are you taking lessons? I was given the advise from a friend to learn on the low wing. He said that flying low wing would prepare me better for other aircraft I'd fl...

Re: Any pilots in here?

I finished my second flight lesson today. First was in an Archer II, instructor did the take off and then handed me the controls until landing. Second was in a 172N, I did the take off, and hand controls until the landing. Instructor simulated an engine loss landing. We coasted from 10 miles out.

Re: Jeffery Epstein arrested in NYC for sex trafficking of minors

I read a lot of reports about the woman who helped Epstein. And the search for her. I'm betting she won't be found. Not alive anyways.

Re: ME: Man shot and killed by his own front door booby trap

What you're describing is "Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design" (CPTED). Here's a pretty good free reference, followed by a more succinct article summarizing key points: https://www.chandlerpd.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Chandler-C3-CPTED-Handbook-2016-1.pdf https://westseattleblog.com...
