    Scott Freebird Johnson Good for a morning laugh. *YOU A PILOT?? I THOUGHT I WAS ....* *You think you have lived to be 80 plus and know who you are, * *then along comes someone and blows it all to hell!* *An old Marine Pilot sat down at the Starbucks, still wearing his old USMC flight jacket and ordered a cup of coffee. * *As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him. She turned to the pilot and asked, **Are you a real pilot?* *He replied, 'Well, I've spent my whole life flying planes, first Stearmans, then the early Grummans... flew a Wildcat and Corsair in WWII, and later in the Korean conflict, Banshees and Cougars. I've taught more than 260 people to fly and given rides to hundreds, so I guess I am a pilot, and you, what are you? * *She said, 'I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about naked women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about naked women. When I shower, I think about naked women. When I watch TV, I think about naked women. It seems everything makes me think of naked women.' * *The two sat sipping in silence. * *A little while later, a young man sat down on the other side of the old pilot and asked:* *"**Are you a real pilot?" * *He replied, 'I always thought I was, but I just found out I'm a lesbian

    Got one of my part 103 students soloed this week . He learned to fly my REVO/Rival S combo quite well then, I had him watch me land his 103 right in front of him for flare timing then soled him in it . He did a great job I must say

    Hi Guys It raining & storming here in Wa. So got a relaxing morning in the house. But I wanted to add that advanced maneuver's like spiral drives can easily kill a pilot that doesn't know the correct recovery for that wing . The recovery is quite ...

    There is no wing I have flown that if I put it in a 45 to 60 degree bank and came off the power that the nose would not start pitching down and the wing would automatically recover from that 50 or 60 degree bank back to level flight. Trikes ...

    A sight gauge is the only one you can trust. Do what you have to do to install one on your trike.

    Yes the MGL Enigma and Extreme used on many trikes has a low fuel warning light that can be set for both the measured fuel sensor in the tank and the calculated fuel level from the fuel flow sensor. I have them set for 2.7 gallons and they get your ...

    Yes Drew that is what most want is comprehensive training for those unique situations to get us out of trouble IF we get there. Better to be prepared than not be able to get out of trouble. Most current pilots who come fly with me ask for it and all ...

    AC (Giles) should retract that statement about the wing having to be unstable to get into a spiral dive, or make a video of how their wings automatically gets out of a spiral dive (or 60 deg designed steep turn)- if he can get it into one. With ...

    In the video or the book, you can see that pushing out will only tighten the spiral. It could save your life. The video was inspired by learning of a few recent deaths that appeared to be a spiral into the ground. The instinct is to push out to ...

    I think that AC statement was from a paper where they were trying to justify being the only major manufacturer who has not advanced to a topless strutted wing so i took it in that context. Every air creation trike i flew spiraled nicely. I have a ...

    Thanks Larry - I do recall you going over that now and the importance of calibrating BOTH the fuel level and fuel flow sensors. Its nice to know the Revo has that capability. However, I've flown in Airborne a few times in the past (912XT + ...
