OK Bud,
Now I know! So, NO g/f and NO job! Now that's the way to relax,
except for looking after yourself as a Bachelor, unless you still have
your live-out maid around! Anyway, enjoy your retirement!  ;)

Sorry Art and anyone else that misunderstood.  This is not quite 100% accurate.  I just don't know how to spell or pronounce the word.   Like the saying goes, there is a first time for everything and sooner or later I guess I had to bite the bullet.
Whatever floats your boat.

Lee, I'm sure you have already checked it out in reference to your Commercial Ticket. I find it strange if your current they won't let you just do a checkride and go through the motions. That's all I had to do when I went to Panama, then again we're talking 20+ years ago and it was only for private.

Dan, its not that simple, im current except for medical, both multi engine and single engine but they want me to go to a school to learn how to fly, yea WTF...I rented a plane to fly from Tacloban to Cebu and back and had to have a Filipino pilot with an instructors license to fly with me.  On the way back, I thought I would just practice some (it was my dime) come to find out

sorry, missed the tab, but when I was practicing the pilot that was with me, had never done a spin, never slipped an aircraft and a bunch of other things, when I took the aircraft up to about 6k and spun it down to 3k i thought he would wet his pants...a sore point with me as you can understand...

Lee,
Are you kidding? yeah I know your not. All I can say is wow, my instructor had me doing those maneuvers in under 40 hours. I wasn't taught at a commercial school, he was an old school barnyard CFII that was true fly by your seat type pilot. He was nice but unforgiving when critical mistakes were made. I think what you have witnessed is commercialized aviation by the numbers and not experience.
