Re: IPC before PPC?

Does the letter "c" in those stand for cookie?

Increadible Peacan Cookies

Peanutbutter Peanutbutter Cookies

If so, I'd probably call that second one DPC.

Re: Training Time on a Taildragger?

The Calgary Flying Club has a citabria. There is a waiting list but I believe they have a new conventional gear instructor.

Call them up if you're interested, 403-288-8831

Re: High Blood Pressure

I don't think the coversyl is fixing me but maybe my doc will try something else. I need to find a fitness buddy that will harass me if I'm not at the pool three times a week.

For those without a time machine in the Guelph region, Tiger Boys have an open house most years.

Excellent point 8895. Find out how much drinks are at "The Top Hat."

Re: How do you guarantee finding that airport

I don't like the sounds of 30 degrees intentional off course for a half hour, when you're worried about making it on your self described barely legal reserve.

If you were on track you might be flying out of range of that destination. Sounds scary.

I'm a bit annoyed about how everything is so difficult to find information on. I went to a new doctor a while ago and she panicked and wanted to feed me some pills.

Re: $55 charge, for processing medical?!

I was not throwing out a guess. They sent out a letter explaining the reason for billing just before it started. Just because that reason no longer exists does not make my statement into a guess.

Re: Tie Down etiquette at a new airport.

I was tempted to buy a hangar that was for sale several years ago at "Kirkcaldy?". It was only $80,000 but needed some pretty big repairs to the roof. I kind of figured I could not afford to fix it up. Would have been cool though. The airport at the actual town of Vulcan is not the commonwealth air ...

Re: Tie Down etiquette at a new airport.

I heard the Star Trek museum moved from Vulcan to Drumheller. I don't even know how you would check on such a rumour but thought I would post. I think the ship is still in Vulcan though. You might want to check out both. Have fun.

I'm not trying to be mean but I might come off that way. You can log it anyway you like. Transport might disagree. I would log it PIC if you have the FAA cert. Enjoy the flights and just fly the extra hours if they require it toward CPL. Nice job if you are flight testing under the required hours. I...
