I am a no-longer-bullet-proof male pilot. I flew professionally (retired by age), I fly for pleasure and I’m a retired military pilot. My certificates include ATP, CFII, A&P/IA, FE, a couple of type ratings and at last count I have logged somewhere around 12,000 hours of flight time. But every time I go flying, whether the airplane is big or small, I learn something new about flying or about myself. And that’s why I’m still doing this aviation thing after 50 years.
My personal airplane is two-seat (side-by-side) and the little wheel is in the back. It has a single comm radio and and ADS-B IN/OUT using a Stratus and an iPad with Foreflight. When I go somewhere in it, I look outside and enjoy the scenery.
When something catches my interest, pushes a button, or just sounds interesting, I’ll try and write coherently about it but there are no guarantees. If you like what you read or even if you don’t – feel free to leave a comment. Just try to keep the comments civil and on topic. We’re here to learn and to enjoy the conversation.
Thanks for putting up with the occasional rants and ramblings. If you want to contact me directly, just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Yeah, guys spell it that way too, OK?)
