Thank you aviation! Today I realized through aviation I have become friends with some of the most interesting and diverse group of people imaginable. World War vets, self made millionaires, test pilots, old money, world travelers, people who have lost fortunes, guys who fought revolutions, complete scoundrels and true gentleman. I would never get to meet these people but we are all united by a love of flight. Thank you aviation. Because of you I met my heroes.
freeoftheground asked: Navigating with GPS, or is your CFI teaching you old school?
My CFI is teaching me old school (Paper Sectionals, VOR) and also using GPS (Garmin 430) and also using Foreflight. He wants me to be able to use all forms of navigation available to me. Usually we navigate with the Garmin 430 and Foreflight, but occasionally he wants me to bust out the old school tools and map my route
