We need some posts!

Let me be frank, even though my name is Mark. I have found GT to be one of the best places to get the straight scoop on everything from recipees for soup to .416 Rem Mag. The place is full of good people with, for the most part, the same outlook on life in general. So when I started on my private license training, I came here hoping to find all sorts of gems.

To my dismay, there are hardly any new bits of information on here.

I've taken the suggestions from here seriously, and read Stick and Rudder, Joined AOPA, now I feel like you guys are letting me stall ;f ;f

Here's a gem...

Never run out of altitude, airspeed, and ideas all at the same time!

Or, as some F-14 pilots I know say...

Speed is life!

Pull stick back; the houses get smaller.
Push stick forward; the houses get bigger.

If you can see in the windows of the houses you need to pull the stick back.

A small two-seater Cessna 152 plane crashed into a cemetery early this afternoon. Search and rescue workers have recovered 300 bodies so far and expect that number to climb as digging continues into the evening.

Attitude .... attitude ..... attitude ..... altitude ....... heading.

Everybody wants to go to California. So if you go east you gotta' be odd.

East is least and west is best.

Don't break the airplane.

Along those lines...on my submarine we had a Naval Academy midshipman on board for his summer cruise....and he was on the periscope when we were coming to periscope depth.

Well, as we proceed up to PD, he has the scope up and is doing his sweep...which means half turn around fast, 1/4 turn slow, repeat until all clear.

Suddenly, he yells, "Holy ****! Emergency Deep"....we go to all ahead full, down angle...OOD sounds collision....so the whole boat is up and crapping themselves...

When asked what he saw, he says "I saw a merchant close aboard...the Nosmo King"...

Sonar only had one contact, but it was somewhat distant.

Well, the Captain clears the area and we go up again...and finds the scope on high power when he takes it....

We get up and find that distant merchant....who had a No smoKing sign on the bridge....


LOL...That midshipman never lived it down.

I got one...

I learned that when on your first dual night cross country, and your instructor has you get the wx brief, it's better to tell'em about the field obscuration expected on your return... beforeyou are halfway to cruise altitude.

We flew from Gray AAF Ft. Lewis to Harvey field. Great chocolate pie and the field was clear on our return.

pizzaaguy, that was OK,

"Flight 2431, for noise abatement , turn right 45 degrees."

" But Center, we are at 35000 feet. How much noise can we make up here?"

"Sir, have you ever heard the noise a 747 makes when it hits a 727?

There is a story about a military pilot calling for a priority landing because his single engine jet fighter was running " a bit peaked "
Air traffic Control told the fighter jock that he was number two behind a B52 that had lost an engine.

"Ah " the pilot remarked, " the dreaded seven engine approach"

MarkCO and company,

Sorry I can't add anything constructive to this Forum.

I flew in a couple of C-130's and made my getaway from Nam in a C-47 ( by way of Thailand ), but aside from a few aviation jokes forwarded to me, I don't know squat about aircraft ( F-4's are ever so noisy ) so pardon my intrusion ans keep air under your wings.

later
DG

Flight training

Remember, any landing that you walk away from, is a good landing!

This is how I originally heard it...

Push stick forward; the houses get bigger.
Pull stick back; the houses get smaller.
Pull stick back further; the houses get bigger.
