    Hey, great! Just keep your lessons as close together as possible, to minimize the extra time you'd have to spend on review from one lesson to the next.

    Sorry -- I've never been good at reading faces, body English or tone of voice through text, so guess I missed that. I bet there was a lot of truth in your post though, too -- I sure could identify...

    I understand, and I'm sorry you had that problem, Eric, but that's also why I said: (emphasis added), rather than saying always. Of course you certainly have something to look forward to, and maybe...

    Comments on hangar flying

    I read Steve Krog's post on throttle stuck open but couldn't read comments or post comments, using Waterfox browser. So I tried Chrome, and I could read comments but not post any -- it asked me to...

    You're not alone -- most of us are (or have been ) in the same boat. Few people understand (or much care) about details of aviation beyond touting the virtues (or lack thereof) certain airlines or...

    There's certainly nothing wrong with going to an ultralight to get in the air. And I'd suggest that starting earlier might be a good way to go, since I've seen too many people who waited 'til...

    Hi Tyler, welcome to the forum. Your questionnaire is, indeed, short, but there's (IMO) too many multiple choice questions, or at least not enough flexibility in answers that don't fit my case (and I...

    Not really true, though it can almost seem like it on newer works. You used to have to register, then renew in order to maintain copyright, with renewal limits. Now if it's published it's...

    Thanks, Ron -- I'd heard of the legal struggle, but didn't know about the "autocorrect."

    Yeager's Gone

    C h u c k Y e a g e r passed away yesterday at the age of 97. I can't seem to get his name in with normal typing without it being changed to "a famous test pilot."

    I've read that there is some mechanism that allows the use of FSX aircraft, but I don't have the sim (it needs Win 10) and don't know any further details. You might check out the MSFS 2020 section...

    Of course one reason for that difference is that the slower speed puts a lot less strain on the gear and doors, but the higher speed is available if you really need it. Just like the 175 mph gear...

    You might want to specify the vintage and model. The F-33A (1970s) specifies 175 mph/152 kts, but many earlier Bonanzas (and Barons) were lower. A 1965 S35, for example was 165 mph. Obviously this is...

    And Capt. Glen Edwards died testing the YB-49, too. From Wikipedia:

    I've flown a number of V-35s and F-33s (besides the Debonair once), even the same model year ones, and I, too, cannot tell any difference in handling. If you were plopped inside the cockpit without...

    Think of a Debonair as a Bonanza that just has a lower powered engine than the same vintage Bonanzas -- otherwise they're essentially the same aircraft. So a Bonanza article still mostly applies,...

    I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for, and my only experience is a good one: Years (1975) ago I rented a B-33 Debonair for a trip from New Mexico to Kentucky and back. It's a nice flying...
