Brings to mind the drunken passenger who recently was fined the cost of the fuel wasted to return him to the airport of origin. I like the idea that people found to be responsible for creating...

This.

The regulations have a well known gap when it comes to night flying; It is possible (and certain over long stretches of water) that in night VMC conditions, there will be little or no visual...

It's kind of like steering a super tanker, you have to think ahead, and it happens slowly, but regulation is driven by what society wants - we elect the rule makers. Citizens should be making...

Oooo, I've had rain turn into sticking freezing rain in flight, and that happens fast! If it's raining, and around +1C or so, watch out! I once flew into visible rain near freezing, and in addition...

Like any plane, a 172, or 182 can withstand a pile of ice - as long as it's parked safely on the ground. In flight is a very different matter! The discussion of the hazards of ice accumulation on non...

Me too, (though also two grandchildren and their dads now too). I have often had the use of six seat planes, though I have never taken all of my family flying at once, that has been my choice. More...

Yes, in the hands of an experienced pilot. At 150 knots, things happen fast for a new pilot, and those other five people can be very distracting. As new pilots practice longer flights in less...

If you're a recent PPL it would be wise to consider your aircraft aspirations in terms of stepping stones. Stepping right into a continental performing six seat aircraft may be expecting a bit much...

Indeed, the OP did so. Other posters may then choose to offer their wisdom, or not. That said, considering that some posters do not support the "what" of what is proposed to be done, it's not...

N2P, Sure, it's not a big deal to make a video of your first few lessons, and with a little more effort, edit the video. And then, you have a video which interests no one, with your time, effort, and...

N2P, I speak from many decades of advanced instructing and mentoring in dozens of GA types - I'm not new at this. I caution that the perseverance you display in your posts appears to be the "type A"...

It's not doom and gloom, it's really experienced pilots telling you that you're better to leave the camera at home, and concentrate on flying the plane. Any time you spend around the plane with your...
