    Rebuilding a 182

    . Damn I wonder how that would climb ?... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpZYfd0GzuQ http://www.quietaviation.com/ Never seen it get off the ground but I'm not holding my breath to see it. The left turning engine would sure be interesting on rotation.

    TI FAA medical?

    Flight instructors are authorized to act as PIC to instruct under BasicMed (and have been able to with a third class). https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2017/january/12/aopa-details-basicmed-rule "I may be a dirty pirate hooker...but I'm not about to go stand on the corner." iluvtofly DPH -7, TDS 578, Muff 5153, SCR 14890 I'm an asshole, and I approve this message

    Yep, Bruce is awesome. You do have to tell him everything or he will cut you away like a spinning main. Very reasonable price too, he just wants to help people and I am positive that he put in far more work than he wanted payment for.

  5. I started off as a fun jumper then eventually became a rigger, AFF and Tandem instructor and actually jumped full time for about a year or so. I never expected that my main source of income would be skydiving, but it did for a little while (I wanted a break from the job routine). I've never gone crazy small on canopies, only non touching CRW, no base or wingsuit either. It is what you make of it. Consider your personal goals, set your personal limits and stick with them.

    A new "Citizens for Quiet Skies" issue

    How/where did you get that link? It worked previously, but is giving me a 404 error now. Try this: https://www.bts.gov/newsroom/national-transportation-noise-map ETA: looks like their service is down, but that ID may be expired, that link should generate a new ID when you click the "National Transportation Noise Map" link "I may be a dirty pirate hooker...but I'm not about to go stand on the corner." iluvtofly DPH -7, TDS 578, Muff 5153, SCR 14890 I'm an asshole, and I approve this message

    AirBnB

    We have used them a few times and they're pretty awesome so far. We treat them as our own place and it works out pretty well. Some even include free snacks and such.

    What if I need a skydiving lawyer?

    Nearly two years later you have a comeback? You must be great on your feet. "I may be a dirty pirate hooker...but I'm not about to go stand on the corner." iluvtofly DPH -7, TDS 578, Muff 5153, SCR 14890 I'm an asshole, and I approve this message

    Doc, I believe you're probably in the same boat I was in and I now have a 2nd class, may go for a 1st next month for my renewal. Shoot me a PM if you want to chat about this.

    ti's and dui's

    The difference is that the AFF-I is not critical to the student landing, especially since the student lands without the AFF-I there shadowing the toggles. Think about a CFI who has no medical, they can instruct any time (within their certificates) that the student is a certificated pilot who is qualified to act as PIC and has a medical.

    I don't believe that you must attend AA, but you will have to meet with and get a letter from a "certified substance abuse specialist" to send up to the FAA. You'll have some hoops to jump thru, but you'd probably get a SI medical for the first one (provided you didn't come up above a certain BAC, because the FAA sees those high numbers as signs of a chronic alcohol abuse issue).

  14. I believe that's called 'pressure drag'. "I may be a dirty pirate hooker...but I'm not about to go stand on the corner." iluvtofly DPH -7, TDS 578, Muff 5153, SCR 14890 I'm an asshole, and I approve this message
  15. Kinda like the padding of a base rig? Either way, dude still landed without a parachute, that's fuckin' amazing. "I may be a dirty pirate hooker...but I'm not about to go stand on the corner." iluvtofly DPH -7, TDS 578, Muff 5153, SCR 14890 I'm an asshole, and I approve this message
