Re: Has anybody given up?

If it's serious enough to be clinical depression --- which is a whole lot different than "burn out" -- whatever that means --- You're doing it again. Clinical depression is real, but "burn out" deserves quotes and a "whatever that means"? Seriously? Yes they are differ...

Re: Has anybody given up?

A big issue for me is house prices always go up where I am, in 1 month they went up $100,000 and they kept going up the rest of the year. I honestly don't find flying even fun anymore but I'm not sure if that's just the burnout talking or is it a permanent thing. It sounds like your school might be...

Re: IFR currency required for training flights

I am not a controller but I believe the service to CVFR aircraft is the same as IFR aircraft. Similarly the expectations from ATC are the same except that a CVFR aircraft will remain VFR no matter what, ideally by getting a clearance before deviating. As stated, it is intended for operating in Clas...

Re: Watch That Climb Fuel

45 mins is still cutting it a bit fine IMO. The one time I landed with 30-40 mins of fuel (for a 15 min flight), I decided never again. It was something like 2-3 gallons remaining. It's just not worth the worry about all the potential problems. Now I have a JPI fuel flow gauge, and it seems to be ac...

Re: Does FSS clear IFR aircraft to land at RAAS MF's?

No, class E FSS doesn't give you any kind of clearances. No approach clearances (you get those from ATC before talking to FSS), and they don't give landing clearances. Circuit traffic has precedence over straight-in IFR traffic, but generally FSS will ask circuit traffic to accommodate the IFR traff...

Re: Question about Reimbursement of Costs

This guy puts an advert in a newspaper, takes payment for the flight, then posts a video on facebook showing that he shut the engine down in flight and landed on the runway with the engine stopped.

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

So, what do people have against wearing a mask while in Walmart, or doing flight instructing, or whatever you're doing? Why is that so difficult?

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

Do not question the authorities or the media. To do so makes you part of the tin hat club 🙄 No, but questioning the best available evidence definitely does make you a part of the tin hat club, unless, perhaps, you are a virologist. And it isn't necessary to shut down the economy to protect against ...

Re: Pfizer Covid Vaccine shows 90% effectiveness.

The Danish “Danmask-20” study is out now. As we suspected, masks do not protect the wearer very much. No, it didn't actually show that. In fact, the study was too small to show any useful results. "Although the difference observed was not statistically significant, the 95% CIs are compatible w...

For someone with a PhD, you sure could pass for a drama major. If you were into critical thinking you would not be adding so much salt to your facts.

Preparing for the worst doesn’t mean we have experienced the worst. I just asked my friend in Niagara who’s a nurse what it’s like right now.
