  1. Welcome on board!! I really enjoyed your video! I am looking forward to learning more from you and your life in Turkey.
  2. Fausto my 10 year old son, has to write for school about a person who changed to world for good. So he decided to tell his class about Al Mooney!!! I swear I had nothing to do with it! But now I have to help him put something together... and I have no clue where to find anecdotes etc!!! Please ...

  5. Well, two weeks ago I flew back from San Jose, Costa Rica, MROC, to Ilopango, San Salvador (MSSS). I had stayed for 5 days in San Jose. First the bad: a) Cold Front: due to a very strong cold front I had to extend my stay in San Jose by two days. Winds were for those two days above 25kts, gusting to 40kts...so not being familiar with the area (many hills) I decided that the most prudent thing to do would be to stay on the ground.

Also, Mode S helps a lot to be tracked even when there is no AdsB around. Share pictures please Oscar http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N9341V/history/20210205/1756Z/MSSS/MSSS Sen
  9. I don’t think you will be put in jail... however, if you fly internationally it helps you with the routes and the approaches you may get or not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
