Re: Out of office March 11th until 18th

You're going to Constantinople, not Istanbul?

Just be careful, because I hear that if you've got a date in Constantinople, she'll be waiting in Istanbul. :D

Re: Les Chevaliers du Ciel

The real question is, "what do the French have against the French [language]?" I mean, the music in this video is in English, the best music to come out of France in a long time... a group called Phoenix that sings in English .

Re: "Near Miss" - An ATC Documentary

Good show, but am I the only one who found the theme music reminded them of 70s productions of a very different genre?

Re: SEA 16C Final Video

AJ,

Freakin' sweet video. I'm completely awestruck. Besides the adept chess game he's playing with these guys, my favorite moment was ASA543's response to the "maintain visual separation" instruction in his approach clearance: "...and don't hit the other 7-3, ASA 543."

Light Up America Videos

Fished this up from an ooold VATSIM post. Wicked video that really defines what Light Up America really means. (Of course, it doesn't bother me that it was produced by another Bruin.) http://users.design.ucla.edu/~akoblin/work/faa/Documentationl2.html Edit: and if you think this is cool, check out t...

Re: Freakin' Sweet! Moving Sectional Maps!

(I know this is getting beyond the scope of just VFR flying, but...) I've done some more testing w/ GMap and found that it works very well for approach plates, even on my #2 (slow) machine. I tested it out on an ILS approach w/ a DME arc (PHNY ILS 03). It showed me in real time just how awesome I am...

Well the weather outside is frightful...

...but filing IFR is so delightful. Sometimes you just get so burnt out on ZLA's perfect weather. But then a night like tonight comes along to cheer you back up. Most of SoCal is MVFR and like clockwork KAVX goes below minimums (and then some): KAVX 260851Z AUTO 28018G25KT 1/2SM +RA FG VV003 07/07 A...

Freakin' Sweet! Moving Sectional Maps!

Please excuse my excitement, but I just discovered what I think has got to be one of the coolest FS add-ons for VFR flying: FSWidgets' GMap , an add-on that connects to FS to give you an in-cockpit moving map display. Pros: - Combined with decent scenery, provides a true visual flying experience. - ...

Re: RY is ZLA's newest bravo controller!

From my seat on the flight deck, you sounded like a pro. (Unlike me, who decided to use a different call sign than usual and kept flubbing... "American... uh... I mean... United...") :oops:

Good job!

Flight School Scandal

As a few have noticed... I'm finally back from the wondrous Middle East. While getting my proficiency back this morning, AZ and I were talking about flight schools. I came back home to find out our local Cessna-approved flight school had shut down. At first, I figured this was just a sign of the lou...

Re: Today, I went on a two and a half mile walk...

Awesome pics KC. What a great privilege to do that! Join the Navy and get on a carrier and you can have that privilege at least twice a day. As Wade and I can both say from experience, the walk's shorter and they even PAY YOU! Of course, sometimes the airport relocates to various places less pleasa...

Know where to find a B767 engine starter valve in SoCal?

So, I'm sitting in KSAN right now, hoping Hawaiian can find a (working) B767 engine starter valve in Socal. I've been back state-side for a little rest & relaxation this week and instead it's been a whole lot of mostly entertaining flying: - KLM B757 OBBI to EHAM (spent some of the morning watching ...
