  1. 100% agree on this. This will sound stupid, but take a moment and ask the person your interacting with “how are you doing?” That simple question made things night and day for me. You would hear them be an asshole to the person ahead of you and then their attitude would change when I dealt with them.
  2. Are there warbird sims that can be used for training/EP Sims/type ratings?
  3. It was a poor question. If I apply for a loan today, how long do I have to use the loan and would I receive an interest rate when I apply or only once I place a house under contract?
  4. @Jon - Trident Home Loans How long do we have to keep a mortgage rate once we apply for a loan? Looking to purchase a house in the Miami area by April 2021. Thanks.
  5. A digital watch with the ability to set multiple alarms and vibrates when the alarm goes off like this one:Timex Men's T49851 Expedition Vibrating Alarm Black Resin Strap Watch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004GHLEMQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_sHCSFbKDKZ7QS . It was great while at OTS as I could set it for a minute or two before they started banging on the doors at 0430 and I could be some what coherent while scrambling. I’ve had it for about 2 years now and still use it.
  6. Thanks for the Info. I did it before joining the military and read the same issues of Tricare not covering it. The cost is the same these days and we’ve been looking more into the IVF, but the cost is frightening to read. You remember how long it took you to recover and get back to work from the reversal? I completely understand how you feel about the “switching genders” BS. In my opinion, not being able to start a family is more mentally taxing on a person(s) then someone whose trying to figure if “he” looks better with it tucked in or out... I digress.
  7. I’m sure I’ll get backlash for this, but has anyone gotten a vasectomy reversal? What procedures did you take, did Tricare cover it, and was it successful? Thanks.
  8. Soloing at 30 is crap and 65 is a rip off! This of course is all based on how well you’re doing. Go to a local airport and start networking. The GA community is very welcoming and there’s always a person(s) who are willing to trade labor for flight hours. I.e. clean the plane, hangar, etc The best way of doing this in the cheapest manner is to get into the FAR/AIM Part 61 and see what you can combine into training to help eliminate unnecessary hours. An example would be doing your night flights as XC rides, so you can accomplish 2 things at once. A lot of instructors are good at doing thi
  9. I’m 69”s tall so we’re a little different in size, but I’ve used both the regular IPad and the mini. Standard Ipad was good for not having to zoom in so much, but the size was cumbersome in a 152/172. Especially if you mounted it on a suction cup (could cover a 1/4 of a window) and that’s why I chose the mini. You do need to zoom in on the mini, but it’s been best for me when going from a 172, cub, baron, king air, t-38, etc. Bose does cost you an arm and a leg, but they’re worth it. Another option would be the light speed Sierra. Used them before and they were great.
