Nothing of what you say has
relevance to anything real.

Ouch! You sound like my wife.

You live, think, and deal in fantasy.

I prefer the term Alternate Reality.

Dream
on...

For those interested in some sobering stats: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ts8X3HDtPE At 3:07 is an interesting chart showing factors that have big impacts on outcomes, body mass index (BMI) being a key player, it makes sense but I'd not seen that data broken out yet.

I think actual statistics/data, science and risk management decision making should drive the decisions for clubs, commercial operations and individuals. My intention is to provide some information, not to inflame or pour gasoline on this topic, although I fully expect I will take some incoming fire..

Regards, Tom

Thanks for the info Tom, I for one do appreciate it. I think the Rich Owens interview on the latest thermal podcast is a good one for clubs/CD’s to check out. We are still doing limited flying here of solo ships in a similar manner to what Rich is doing down in seminole.

Florida just announced a State Wide "stay at home order" as of tomorrow night 4/2 midnight... I guess flying here has been halted...

Airports are considered essential businesses so we will continue flying with limitations. No training, rides, or employees coming in contact with pilots/crews. We only have three employees at the company right now. Two of which are present each day (office and tow pilot). If any of our employees get sick, the business will likely close for at least two weeks and we will re-access. To some of us, flying is an outlet that is similar to running and is necessary for our mental health. Lord knows we all need some bright spots in our days. We ask everyone to stay away from the office and use electronic means to communicate/pay their bill with us. The tow pilot and office staff do not hang out together. We believe this keeps everyone safe and still allow pilots to fly their personal ships. Rentals are NOT available.

Rich, thanks for “keeping the faith” and giving us hope that we can still get some pleasure and sanity escape activities during this mess. I wish I lived closer to you, I would be getting a tow or two even if the wx condx are mediocre. I would not only be keeping a little sanity by flying but also providing some financial support to keep a commercial soaring op in business.
Dan
