  1. The acceleration feels like riding a rocket sled for the first SEVERAL MINUTES. If you’ve ever rode in a car with nitrous activated l, it’s like that but for much longer. GXSR - how was your experience? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Well this sucks. I start my new job on Monday in Tom Sullivan’s hometown. How far of a drive is it? Probably not a good idea for me to attend the party as I probably should show up at work on Tuesday sharp and sober... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    lawsuit in Philly

    Hey let’s not all forget who gets the lions share of the settlement/judgement: U N C L E S U G A R. I believe direct injury related cash is tax deductible but not all of it! Part of it is double-taxed too; you pay taxes on the whole settlement/judgement and your attorney also pays taxes on his/her share. Obama admin made discriminatory settlement/judgements tax deductible as people were only seeing 0-35% of their actual award. The case that pushed this was a female police officer that was indisputably discriminated against and ended up owing over $100,000 in legal fees even after her huge settlement/judgement. It seems that the time, stress, and financial burdens of lawsuits aren’t really worth the time. To quote my attorney, “90% of these cases never make it to trial”. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yoopers Rocketman's Lancair

    Awesome paint job Tom; I’ve been waiting for this day. I’m always blown away by the FlightAware stats on this bird. Nothing like busting 300KTS ground speed at cruise for your “short hop” yesterday. What you avoided a 7-8hr drive in lieu of a 40min flight? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The hardest working Bravo in the US?

    My FlightAware history seems to have a 3-day delay. Regardless, I have no problem with family and friends snooping but it would be nice to block everyone else. It’s my understanding that some ADS-B transponders put out an anonymous aircraft identifier for GA ops. My NGT-9000 doesn’t seem to allow this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    M20K down in Spain

    This aircraft seemed to have an active flight history. Interesting track log for this flight - they did a large circle directly over large farm fields before heading directly for the mountains. Must have been IMC. RIP. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Taxing around without any cowling installed

    I’ll be pulling it out by hand and then using the fan to move it around the building. I’ll make sure there aren’t any loose parts. I also always wondered if it was appropriate to “power” the plane directly out of the hangar - I guess it isn’t acceptable practice... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Works fine on my iPhone now. Bummer that it took so long. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Is this acceptable practice? I’m fixing on removing all of the cowling and then taxing it around my hangar building to the other side to my A&P’s hangar - about 100 yds of travel. I’m concerned that maybe the cowling has some sort of structural function. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Today's flight for 2018

    Tom I thought the airport was closed until next Tuesday. I was getting ready for departure last week to go there for a medical appointment and I just happened to see the NOTAM that both runways were closed! I'm guessing the shorter one is done now? I need to come out there next week again too. **EDIT** Disregard - I just read your prior comments. I've been away for away and haven't caught up yet!

    Nav light replacement bulb

    C’mon guys let’s consider the totality of the circumstances here. The Whelen LED nav or landing light bulbs are drop-in replacements. They clearly use less energy. They will almost last the lifetime of the aircraft. There is no way the FAA would dare fight this one.

    Got my renewal insurance quote today...

    Well this is obnoxious if Global decides to raise theirs too. Maybe it’s time to quote non-flying insurance instead now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. That’s not an inverter generator and its 25% heavier. Not bad though for a camper. I picked up a dual-fuel 4000 watt for my camper two months ago for $275 shipped to my door.
  15. Found a Sportsman brand 2200-watt inverter generator for $299 too: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Sportsman-2200-Watt-Gasoline-Powered-Recoil-Start-Portable-Digital-Inverter-Generator-with-Parallel-Capability-CARB-Approved/435994295 Found another 2200-watt on Wal-Mart.com's website for $236: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Tailgater-Camping-Special-Energy-Storm-ESi2000i-CA-California-Sales-Compliant-105cc-Gasoline-Powered-Inverter-Generator-light-weight-power-50-State-C/40333201#read-more
