Impossible to ditch in a field (almost) by mindenpilot
I live out West, where there are hundreds of miles of empty space in every direction. When flight planning, I often say, "I can ditch in that dry lake bed, or that field, or if I have to, on that road." In a couple of weeks, I'm travelling to North Carolina to visit my brother for the holidays. ...

quick browse turns up... by [email protected]
I found this while browsing the TFR listings. The TFR isn't unwarranted, in fact it sounds like a good idea, but a little advance warning would be nice. -lance smith ============================================ NOTAM: 4/3349 Issued: 12/09/2004 21:50

How safe is it, really? by June
I need some information from people 'in the field'. My husband has his private license and is just starting to work on his IFR for recreational flying. He wants to buy into a plane partnership, saying he will be saving money rather than renting. We have 2 little girls. I worry for his safety as...

DIGGING A DEEPER HOLE by Cribsheet
DIGGING A DEEPER HOLE Whether we like it or not, the United States will be dependent on foreign sources of oil for years to come. As each year passes we become more dependent on foreign oil. The amount of oil we require is largely a function of the size of our population. By the year 2050, census...

Just soloed on my 14th b-day! by Tlewis95
I just soloed a Schweizer 2-33 on my 14th birthday! It was the very last day of operations for the Windy City Soaring Association (11/28/04) and I was the last flight of the season. I was amazed how much nicer the 2-33 seemed to fly solo (or maybe it was just me). A special thank you goes out...

Horse rental near airport - flying out of Washington, DC by Max
Hi, I used to drive to a place near Washington, DC that rented horses, but they went out of business. I'm trying to find a stable that rents horses near an airport. Most places in this area just have boring trail rides, and I'd like to be able to go on the trails without a guide. If anyone knows...

origins of cutting the shirt after solo by [email protected]
There have been many stories told about the practice of cutting the shirt of the freshly soloed pilot. None of them made any sense to me, so, after once again reading of the 'tradition' on another list, I asked the one person that I knew who had made a long career of flying and flight instructing,...

Engine bleeding by [email protected]
What's engine bleeding? I've heard the term a few times before, but know not what it means, or indeed what its use is. If I'd to hazard a guess, it must have something to do with wilfully letting off something - air or fuel, perhaps... Ramapriya
