You call that job satisfaction? 'Cause I don't. And me with this
terrible pain in the diodes down my left side. I've asked them to
be replaced, but nobody listens.

And what was the question?

Doesn't matter. 42 is the answer to the Ultimate answer to Life, the
Universe and Everything.

But what was the actual question?


There is a theory that if anyone ever puts together the question and the
answer and figures out who we are, why we're here and what we're supposed
to do, the universe will immediately be replaced by something even more
bizzare and incomprehensible.

There is an other theory that this has already happened.

I would like to know haw many non-commercial and non-ATP pilots in this
group get more certifications. I think the IFR cert is a logical step for
the private pilot, as well as obtaining type certifications. But how many
private pilots get their multi, CFI and commercial licenses just to gain the
experience when flying their families around?

Every different type of flying enhances your experience. Micheal
(crwdog69@something) once posted a list of things a pilot should do
before becoming a CFI (and I think he's done most of them): fly gliders,
fly tailwheel, fly a real cross country, tow gliders, do aerobatic
training, check out in a single-seat airplane, and more stuff I can't
remember off the top of my head.

Happened to mention this to my glider instructor a few weeks ago after
he was dissing poorly trained instructors coming out of the diploma
mills. He said, "imagine that, things that actually TEACH you something
about flying."

Meanwhile, I've done PP-A IA, with tailwheel and complex endorsements.
I'm working on my glider rating and somewhere in the background on the
commercial (next week is my second attempt to do the 300 NM solo
x-country; first attempt was cancelled at the last minute due CB
activity). Eventually, I'll do multiengine and float ratings (thinking,
someday, when my life stabilizes, of building a Murphy Moose and putting
it on floats). Also eventually, I'll do my CFI.

Every little bit helps.

I'm a student though I have not posted anything since my first solo in June.
I'm flying once a week (religiously) but haven't posted recent reports due
to time constraints. In addition to my day job we're closing on a newly
built home in two weeks and preparing for the move.

I do read this group often and find useful the input from students and
especially the input from the experienced pilots hanging about.

Cheers,
david

I was just wondering how many in this group are actually students and how
many are pilots just hanging out here? I'm starting on the cross country
phase of my training now.
