    Let me ask you guys this: how many planes do you think would fly in if someone called flash mob weekend at Whitman field? My money is on between 500 and 1000, and about half of those planes bring...

    That's exactly what I'm thinking. Past viruses have taken 5-6 months to get under control, so it's conceivable that things will still be crazy by July. I don't know about where you guys are, but...

    I'd bet money that SnF cancels in a week or two. I think that, like a lot of us, they were hoping this thing wouldn't get so big, but now that it's a pandemic there's no way around it.

    My flying club is even cancelling our maintenance meeting next week, which is usually attended by about a dozen people.

    Even if there's no one in your area who has it yet, the virus will spread...

    I recognized the make by the tail, but I had to cheat too. The plane is 6 years older than me :D

    Seems that Bill's having a rough week. I had to ignore him on another forum. Wish this forum had that tool.

    Whether or not there are direct flights INTO Appleton, Milwaukee, or Madison is a kind of a moot point. We live in Albany, NY, and about the only places you can fly OUT of here direct to are...

    Marcio, most of the ones I’ve seen are on independent web sites. I’m sure google will help you find these in a few minutes. I think the EAA forum traffic is too slow to have a lot of good info about...

    When I was a kid, a guy built a Christen Eagle in 1 car garage bay a couple of doors over. Plenty of people do projects like this in 2 car garages. It's possible to do it in just about any space,...

    Casey, I think you have come to the wrong place. This is the forum of the Experimental Aircraft Association. Mostly pilots and aviation enthusiasts. Not many gaming enthusiasts here.

    Dave, thanks for the suggestion. I checked flights and Appleton is--by far--the hardest for her to get to on a reasonable schedule. We'll see what makes the most sense when it comes time to pull...

    Sure sounds like CAP to me. Not sure what hot water it would cause except that sometimes forum folks can't help but take a second to bash CAP whenever they can. The thinly veiled subterfuge is...

    I think that in the interest of keeping things peaceful on the home front, I'd better go pick her up :-)

    Thanks everybody. This is all good info.

    Have you verified that your Scout has the latest firmware?

    Unfortunately, there are no user settings so there's not much to do. The "No Data" display on the map would normally indicate that Scout...

    Uninsurable? I doubt it. Expensive insurance? Probably. The insurance market got a lot tighter this year. Much will also depend on the hull value of the plane. Talk to a broker.

    For your PC, the graphics card is likely going to be a performance bottleneck. Most of the smaller PCs have integrated graphics that aren't up to this task, though you may be able to add one. ...

    It would be awesome if EAA chapter 444 would sell them online and ship them in advance. Bet they'd make a killing.
