'[OT]: New Private Pilot'

I just passed my checkride!  For those of you that have visited my flight
page:  http://www.barrymichels.com/flight  I now have something to update it
with!  When I get back from the 2-day trip I got planned for tomorrow...

Now, I have more time to spend developing pic-related projects.  So far, I've
only built a g-meter & level.  Using Analog Devices' ADXL202 (I think that's
the part #) 2-axis accelerometer.  The top line of the 2x16 LCD is a +/- 2g
vertical axis indicator and the bottom line is a bubble level
<      O      >

Are there any other pilots on this list?  If so, what kind of toys do you
have in your plane?

Well done. Congrats on your achievement.

Got my PPL about a month ago. Still "flying high" over it ;-)

Started aerobatic lessons and will get night VFR when I can afford it.

No toys yet, but here's a picture of the plane I just started to
build...

and here's an adaptation of Bob Blicks propellor clock I'm building for
the aero club.

There are a few former student pilots - as I was
one. I wanted the taste of the left seat and got
it through some flight instruction 20 plus years
ago.

It was a thrill - taking off from Addison field then
heading south over I-635 (the loop around Dallas) - I
still remember takeoffs when the "wheel" begins to
become live (exhibit force from the control surfaces)
as one headed down the runway. For weeks after that
I felt I only had to pull back slightly on my
car's steering wheel somewhere above 70 MPH to
accomplish the same thing that the Cessna 150 did!

I was in Dallas on a business trip 3 weeks ago.  The closest class B airspace
to me is Philadelphia and takes about 30 minutes to reach.  So, I rented a
plane from Addison and a local instructor showed me the ropes in that area.
After 2 touch-n-go's in Spinx (I think that's the spelling), we got clearance
to fly right over the top of DFW at 3,000 feet!  I had the video camera ready
and got some footage while the instructor did the flying back to Addison.
What a day!

Oh boy, I feel a new wave of PIC-aircraft-cruise-control
discussions coming on. :-)

Congrats on the license!  Awesome feeling isn't it?

I've got my PPL about 12 years ago and instrument about
5 ago.  Also did most of my CPL, and was looking at my
logbook this weekend, realizing I need only 4 hrs and
2 x-ctry's to go for the CPL.  The intention was to get
my CFI so that I could find an excuse to fly more.

So what's the state of GA nowadays since everything went
haywire last year?  I'd really like to get the CFI, but
only if there are still students out there.

Be safe out there!

Cheers,
-Neil.

Did some time in a Citabria over San Franscisco bay area, and got a
"ride" in a Pitts here in Austin.  I must say, the Citabria doesn't
compare to the Pitts.... what a riot!  I highly recommend getting
even 30 mins in a Pitts to put things in perspective :-)

Cheers,
-Neil.

I LOVE IT!  I'm going on a short trip over to the Pittsburg, PA area to pick
up a friend that's visiting from Georgia.  Then taking him back next weekend.

Things are pretty much the way they were before, except for a few flight
restrictions.  There's more urgency for keeping up with information and not
doing anything stupid.  On a x-country back in March, I flew over the
Pottstown-Limrick nuclear power plant at 6,500 ft.  Looked right down the
cooling towers...  It's ok, as long as I didn't circle & decend or linger.
