Or answering questions in the advice forum from the air.

Yeah, we’ll know that he’s logging valuable flight hours every time we see him answering questions on the forum.

Internet connections can be spotty while flying! SHeesh, you think drivers that are texting while driving are bad...don't want to think about trying to pilot a plane while working a computer (well, other than the instrument displays built in!). There's some mountains around here...not huge, but it doesn't take much to ruin your day! I guess at that point, you'd probably not care anymore, though.

Much, much easier to fly an airplane and do other things than to drive an automobile and do the same other things.

But I do remember the rare times I was driver in a helicopter I was usually too busy even to talk on the radio.

Well, there isn't generally as much traffic in the air, but boy, can it come at you in more than one way...3-d is a totally different way to perceiving the threat! Brakes don't really work well, either!

A new airplane tends to have some little, and maybe not so little things you have to deal with, so it's best not to get too distracted while you find out what is 'normal' with it.

Weather Wednesday should be nice, and hope to get a bunch of hours in.

A couple of GoPro's would fix us right up, Jim, one upon your helmet so we can watch where you're intending to go and another on the dash pointed rearward so we can see those subtle, but important "whoa, whooooooa" moments.

I'm way too much of a sissy to get in one of those things (or helo's, or hot air ballons, or or or - the list is long) so need to log flight time vicariously through you.

Dan,

You don't have to be a sissy to avoid flying in small aircraft including helicopters. I've avoided them since I returned from Viet Nam lo these long years ago. I've met Jim a number of times at training events, and he doesn't strike me as a thrill seeker. Of course, he is an engineer.

Yeah, you do gotta be a sissy, Dan.

Anybody who'll drive an automobile to the airport and declare the little airplanes or the big airplanes too hazardous to risk flying in is just not paying attention to reality.

Besides, little planes are a lot more fun.
