Re: Home owner shoots down Drone. It's Started!

So lessons learned: 1. A shotgun can knockdown some drones at surprisingly long range. 2. Some folks in Kentucky are pretty handy with a scatter gun. 3. Don't fly anything to low across this guys backyard. Or mine. Btw. A shotgun with any small birdshot pointed up is nt going to hurt anyone around w...

Re: Beren's Band roasts air ambulance service in the media

I have to back up esp and redneck. The most unprofessional thing you can do as a medevac pilot is change how you fly based on the condition of the patient. You should not know, heli medevac Pilots down south are never told now, bc of their terrible safety record back in the day when they did know. I...

Get ahold of the cubdriver749er guy. Loni Haber-something or other. He does training n the very thing you are after. While he probably won't be where you are when you want, he may have contacts who are. Be advised, there are lots of guys with taildraggers on big tires who can't land in less than a t...

Re: How many shares are too many in a plane?

Oh ya. There are those people too.

On a side note, someone should figure out what plane is the most effective chick magnet. (Within a reasonable budget of course, I'm pretty sure a G6 would win otherwise)
