  1. As they say, as long as the aircraft is reusable, it was a good landing. That's always been my goal.
  2. Happy to hear that Nick. That's my goal...not to teach you to be a meteorologist, but hopefully to take you to the next level and have it finally "click" as you start putting all of this together.
  3. Still seats available for the FREE webinar to be held on April 21st. Reserve your seat today. April 21, 2020 (9:00-10:00 pm EDT)
  4. The April 2nd webinar is full, but plenty of seats left for the April 21st webinar.
  5. If you are interested, bored or otherwise need a distraction, I will be doing a free 30-45 minute webinar on April 2 and 21 to knock off the wintertime rust and start to think about our summertime flying hazards. If you attended or bought the recording to my In-Flight Hazard Avoidance Strategies webinar I did last year, you probably won't want to attend this'll be a shorter version/summary of that webinar. There are limited seats available...and please only register for one of the two dates below. They will present the same material. April 2, 2020 (9:00-10:00 pm EDT) April 21, 2020 (9:00-10:00 pm EDT) An email invite on how to join the webinar will be sent on the day before the webinar. Fly safe and stay healthy!
  6. The CDC just recommended that “for the next 8 weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the U.S.” Unless SnF wants to go against this recommendation, they will need to cancel or postpone again.
  7. Interesting to see that @sunnfunflyin blocked a Twitter follower because they had suggested "Be smart and cancel the event."
  8. The other end of the spectrum is that nobody reacts at all and uses the "it'll not happen to me" or "attend at your own risk" that ends in a horrible outcome with the healthcare system overwhelmed, hundreds of thousands (if not millions dead) and eventually the financial market takes an even greater tumble with entire companies wiped out. Don't confuse preparation with panic. People are not really in panic mode...I don't see people jumping off of bridges yet.
  9. Just got off the phone with someone who lives in the "war zone" in Italy and I won't describe what he said to me (first hand, not media) since it is really horrific and just honestly too disturbing to write. I can guarantee you that what I heard was 100X worse that I ever thought. The media isn't covering these details...fortunately. We really don't have a clue and every measure taken is a small glimmer of hope it won't be even a fraction as bad as what has been occurring elsewhere in the world.
  10. Of course, right around college graduation time. Ugh! Just pushing it by a few weeks isn't going to make much of a difference.
  11. You think most people are that sensible? My friend, they are not. And it doesn't work that way, because if you come home from a trip and are infected (and don't know it) and spread it to your spouse who is feeling quite well and goes into a nursing home to visit her aging parent like she's done for the last two years, what now? There are way too many cases where people really don't know where they got it from and don't meet the criteria you think is the most common issue. That's the problem here. It's not like you have a big C on your chest as soon as you come in contact with the virus.
  12. I teach remotely every day and love, love, love it! No commute. Hell, I can even teach in my PJs if I wanted to! I suspect this will spark colleges and universities all over the world to start thinking more seriously about online instruction as a replacement for F2F instruction. Instructors better get used to this as the future or they will end up like Blockbuster did with video rentals.
  13. I spoke with one of the organizers and they emphatically said “we are not canceled.” Well, that kind of response leaves no wiggle room.
