  1. Well, looks like the FAA figured out the need for this (hopefully not because I annoyed them asking for the data to keep my database updated) so they've added the rigger seal lookup to their airmen inquiry page. You can search for any FAA issued rigger seal code at the bottom, no other fields are necessary. https://amsrvs.registry.faa.gov/airmeninquiry/ I'll probably be decommissioning my search now that it's completely obsolete.
  2. No rigger data was compromised, just the secret location of how to access it.
  3. Hey everyone, after an unfortunate leak of information which brought this application to a large group of skydivers/riggers, I've decided to make it available for everyone. https://www.theonlyski.com/rigger.php I will remove access if it starts getting abused, I've kept a pretty close circle of people that have had access to it and it's great for looking up a previous rigger to get in contact with them. If it starts getting abused for anything more than making contact with the rigger one on one to discuss work, I WILL remove it from public access. RIP my bandwidth allotment.
  4. I've heard of last minute shopping before, but damn. "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
  5. . 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.

  6. Put a PT-6 on it. Get the STC and have fun. "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
  7. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/mar/22/video-released-of-uber-self-driving-crash-that-killed-woman-in-arizona I know the camera probably didn't pick up as much as a human eye can (especially when the eyes are adjusted for night driving), but there was damn near zero reaction time available. I bet 7/10 if not more people would have hit her just the same if they had full control. The driver was looking away but I don't know that she would've been able to react in time.

  8. But, how do you even log the time in it? SEL? RH? Multi? All of the above? I think it's a cool idea, but I really just cannot see how they plan on integrating with the US NAS. Most of the general public has no idea about the rules and regulations involved and even if they're flying low altitudes, eventually the weather is going to crap out or the systems will glitch and the people inside are going to need to take control and save their bacon (also wouldn't surprise me if they put a BRS in it).

  10. "Bring me another beer" "Wait till your dad gets home" (we hadn't done anything wrong but she told him we did, we just got our asses beat for no reason other than her enjoyment I guess) "Can I have some more money?"

  11. 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
  12. And...you would need a browser that listened on a port for incoming connections. Yeah, I forgot about the whole browser part.

  13. I think something on your PC must be downloading an update. There's not likely going to be an easy way to stop it from happening without seriously breaking some other things. If you are really concerned with it, you could set up a local DNS server and blackhole all of the domains... but good luck with using the internet with that enabled. The CDNs don't typically "push" to you and it would be kind of hard to do with your computer behind a NAT and not using port forwarding on your router. A device on your network is most likely requesting updates. On Windows 10 (maybe 8 as well) you can set your connection type to 'metered' and that's supposed to stop it from doing background downloads but I've never tried that.

  14. Pull up a web chat with them, tell them what's going on and I'd be surprised if they didn't have replacement orders on the way as fast as the system could process it.

  15. I was pretty confused when I went back to Texas for a trip after having joined the Army and left for several years. Turns out, the tow trucks there were authorized to run amber and blue lights. Not sure when the laws started to change but I think it was in response to people not moving over for tow trucks (which is pretty dangerous for the truck operator).
