I'm wondering how many monkeys hold some sort of pilots license
please take my poll
I only fly when thrown from a window. Or coach. Though I have done hang-gliding a couple of times.
Thank you for your informative post that added value to this conversation ..
What? Your aircraft all must have motors? That sound prejudiced to me.
Well, I have 179 more takeoffs than landings if that helps any!
what? you jumped out of a perfectly good aircraft?
Hell ya! It's the ONLY way to fly!
I have a couple of dozen hours but only ever had a student license. Where I live lots of my friends fly and a few own there own planes. But none have licenses. I asked my buddy if he was worried about getting caught and his reply was "what are they going to do, pull me over!". He did have an emergency once and had to land, he wasn't about to declare it and land at an airport( that would bring an FAA inspector in) so he put down in a farmers wheat field. Walked up to the house and paid the farmer for the damage, called his brother to bring the truck and trailer, took the wings off, loaded it on the trailer and took it home.
Used to own a plane, have a litte stick time in gliders, a tiny bit in a helicopter, some jumps and a fair amount in a trike ultralight but none compare to flying a hang glider. Have over 900 hours in them.
I'm a pilot and have an A&P. I want to share a story I read somewhere about why Airplanes fly. The short version. In the story a mans son ask him "Dad, what makes airplanes fly". Then man goes on about all the theories and science behind flying and then tells his son that they are all wrong. Why are they wrong the son ask. Because says the dad, "It's actually Money that makes airplanes Fly" ;-)
The two most worthless things in aviation......
The runway behind you and the altitude above you!
well back when I was a teenager I started going for my pilots license. I was in the Civil Air Patrol so I got to take lessons at a discount and I took part in a "Solo Camp". So yes I've flown, but never completed to get my license. I missed the ground school test by one question, then was grounded by my ear DR. due to a surgery to fix my ear drum. Unfortunatly I never went back to taking my lessons, I do however still have my log book.
PP/SEL since 1996
Once again, all this shows is that we have a lot of talent in various areas here on SM. Lovin' it.
I have over a 1000 hours air time as a navigator does that count?
I've been on at least 10,001 helicopter's ride's over the Gulf, I perhaps could fly one in necessary.
I'm pretty sure that when it come's time to land one that what ever is in front of me is what I'll hit.
I hope that clear's up my ability to fly ?
rules for flying... never run out of airspeed, altitude, or ideas at the same time...
no and no interest i hate flying but seem to be in a plane about 4 times a month lately
I have thousands of hours in all kinds of airplanes but only in simulators
Did you work on landing (we hope) or only taking off and flying? ;-)
