  1. My question was off topic but a couple of posts made me curious. Thanks
  2. Do people log sling time in their personal logbook? If so, why?
  3. I've bought two Gallet's from Rob at Merit Apparel over the years. I love the helmet and the service is awesome. I just ordered an inline volume control from them, over $100 cheaper than anywhere else I could find! Always ask to ship USPS, UPS sticks you with additional fees everytime.

The sea level scenario would be a non-event and the logging scenario, well with a jettisonable load you would be at least 3000lbs below gross and while you may not be able to fly awa
  8. I got my license in the early ‘80s, and the economy went for a nose dive to celebrate. Over the period of a year I made two cross country road trips banging on doors. Everyone I talked to were all very nice but all had the same message. “We can’t hire you when we can’t keep our regular pilots busy.” I was living on the west coast at the time in a small travel trailer. I was so broke I couldn’t afford propane for the furnace and subsequently came down with double pneumonia in the winter.
