I give up, after many, many years! by Jay Somerset
I give up -- not flying -- but subscribing to this NG. It is just too riddled with crap and backbiting, to the point that it carries little if any useful exchange of interest to active pilots. It isn't worth the effort any more, even with multiple kill files. So good riddance to 90+% of the...

4 Attachment(s) Leaving the community by David Brooks
One thing - one of so very many things - I learned in my five years of flying is that partisan politics does not fit into the cockpit. Most of my flight instructors have, I know, been to the right of me politically. I had a most enjoyable flight with CJ - although he has since earned my...

We Are All Spaniards by Jay Honeck
We are all Spaniards today. As a percentage of Spanish population, the horrendous terrorist attack on Madrid has now actually injured and killed more people than the World Trade Center attacks did to America in 2001. Terrorism must be stopped, whatever the cost. Whether it was Basque separatists...

Thrown out of an FBO... by Jay Honeck
Decades ago, in my younger days (okay, waaaay younger), I was asked to leave a drinking establishment or two, and I've had a few women show me the door, over time...but I never thought I'd ever be asked to leave an FBO. To our amazement, it happened to Mary and me today. It all started pleasantly...

Bible-beater pilots by Jay Honeck
Yesterday was clear, in the 60s (in November in Iowa!), and -- best of all -- our day off. With the kids in school, and the plane fully fueled, it was off to...where? Prairie du Chein, sitting at the confluence of the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers, beckoned, with its beautiful approaches,...

NATCA Going Down in Flames by Jay Honeck
As of today, the FAA has imposed a dress code on their employees, requiring that they (*gasp!*) NOT where flip-flops and cut-offs to work! Amazingly, believe it or not, these employees are now actually going to be required to wear (*Oh-mi-God*) DRESS PANTS and a DRESS SHIRT to work! In the face...

The title says it all. Just received the latest price sheet from TOTAL. Probably about the same throughout Europe. JET-A is exactly half the price. G Faris

Should I be scared -- C172 over Gross by tman
Flown C172's for quite a while, and never had anybody in the back. Now I'm planning on quite a trip, with 2 pax and luggage. When I fill the fuel to the *tabs*, calc everyone's weight honestly and consider baggage -- I'm 75 lbs over the 2450 gross on departure. Maybe 100 over gross if I assume...

$98 per barrel oil by Jay Honeck
Well, boys and girls, here it comes. $4/gallon gas in America. This will translate into $7/gallon avgas soon enough. Our last fly-in guest at the hotel was almost two weeks ago... (And we just had our 28th consecutive sell-out weekend, so business is booming...) :-( -- Jay Honeck

Katrina fall-out by Jay Honeck
I wonder if the insurance companies (and the federal government) will FINALLY wake up to the fact that building permanent structures below sea-level in a hurricane zone is folly? Just in the last couple of years (after paying out billions to re-build homes along the Mississippi -- again) these two...

"socialist" when describing Hillary Clinton by WolfRat
Current language usage compels me to use the term "socialist" when describing Hillary Clinton. The actual word we need to use is "fascist." The left, however, has managed to take the "fascist" word and turn it into an epithet against right-wingers. Nazis were fascists, right? Perhaps you might...

Why GA is Dying by Kyle Boatright
After I landed from this morning's flight, a young guy (maybe 18 or 20 years old) came over, complimented my airplane and asked if he could take some pictures. Of course, I was flattered and told him to shoot away. He hung around and we talked for 20 minutes or more as I wiped down the...

Why don't voice radio communications use FM? by Mxsmanic
Perhaps this is a naive question, but: Why don't voice radio communications for aviation use FM radio instead of AM radio? I realize there's substantial inertia in the installed base of AM equipment, but surely one could allocate some new frequencies to FM and use them in parallel for some years...

Way off topic, but it has do to with the French by Tina
The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralysing the...

Flaps on take-off and landing by Mxsmanic
At what point does one normally set flaps before take-off? I've been doing it only when aligning with the runway, on the theory that extending flaps prior to that would just make me more vulnerable to wind while on the taxiway or at the gate. Similarly, I retract the flaps completely as soon as...

Backwash Causes Lift? by Le Chaud Lapin
Hi, Student pilot here, self-teaching using the Jeppensen Private Pilot Kit after taking ground school. :D I read in the book that combustion "creates" energy, which is technically not true, but I decided to ignore it since the pictures are sooo pretty. Now, in Chapter 3, section about airfoils,...
