Flight Lead (3/4)



  1. Sometimes I get bored and just monitor 13927 and hear some interesting stuff. But yea always appreciate the help with info/phone patches.
  2. The EAA article talks about it a towards the end of the article. Previously only CFIs who used their own experimental to instruct in (and charged for instruction) needed a LODA. Hopefully the EAA and AOPA can get this changed the FAA is starting to act like the ATF now.
  3. If someone goes from AD to a TR position the only way is to take terminal leave or sell the leave back before separating?
  4. Not sure about Vance but the other 3 bases all have good places to hit the water. We were on the lake every nice weekend during UPT.
  5. We should do what Nigeria did and build a fleet of Van's RV-6 airplanes to put at bases. Cheap maintenance costs, aerobatic, cruises the same speed as a SR-20 burning almost half as much fuel. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van%27s_Aircraft_RV-6
  6. Normally the hotels are booked up pretty far out so 4 miles away is not bad at all. As far as airports I'd just go with which ever has the better flight for your schedule (MCO/TPA). SFB would add another hour to the drive. Overall similar vibes to Oshkosh. There is no beer tent like there is right outside of Oshkosh but sometimes people will throw parties on the grounds after hours. If you go on vansairforce it will just be a bunch of old dudes complaining about how they have to walk really far from homebuilt camping. Are you going to Oshkosh this year?
  7. I'm partial to RVs but there is a reason why there are so many of them flying. You can fly quickly and still land on a lot of backcountry strips and go camping.
  8. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/6th_Special_Operations_Squadron Looks like the AF flew one of them for a few years in the 2000s.
  9. I bet there is a C-5 facebook group with old timers in it.
