    I used this online course: https://cessnaflighttraining.kingschools.com/Index.aspx
    and this book: https://www.amazon.com/Private-Pilo...coding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=99H49B5APKBTSZXD64P9

    The book was cheaper and more informative



    As an aside, I flew naked today. Was a strange feeling.
    Flying without a watch just feels weird.

    Curious what branch. Considering a transition and well, may pursue Naval aviation if A) they'd take me and B) I'd be in Flight. Or I just keep acting like I'm working in IT and build hours much slower...lol

    I second not being a weatherman!

    Navy.
    I didn’t do anything with aviation. I was just a combat medic.
    Landnav is easy, finding things on VFR is even easier. Anything is better than having to pull out a protractor.

    Just finished reading Frozen in Time last night. Excellent book. Highly recommended if you enjoy aviation/military history. Lots of people mentioned and passing between 1942 and 2012 throughout the book but very easy to follow. Zuckoff's other book, Lost in Shangra-La was also very interesting.

    ....^^^... Cool pics bring back memories .... I have a house and live part-time in Chiang Rai, Thailand and I go over to Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam sometimes ... and I see those Vietnam War memorials all over the place (especially around the bigger cities).

    I served in RVN during my military days and WOW has that place changed today ... and for the better too.

    Vietnam is actually a cool place to visit today.

    The tower that's barely visible from where I'm standing is .5 miles away. There's a large hill right behind that that's completely invisible.

    I was on a flight from London to Chicago this week and saw this piece of history out of the window while we were waiting to take off. Not the best picture but still got it.

    Seeing the one at Udvar-Hazy, I was amazed how teeny tiny it was in cabin diameter. Back when people were thin, and air travel was a luxurious experience.

    The fogginess of the England weather just makes this photo look even more sinister. So much raw power.

    Now go on, someone re-re-re-post "the thing" :cool:

    There is one here in Seattle at the Museum of Flight that you can actually walk through. It feels super small inside, though they did manage to stuff 4 abreast seating in it that I don't remember being too overly tight.

    Oh yeah, I've been in that one. I remember the aisle being pretty narrow.

    They do have plexiglass between the aisle and the seats so you can't actually touch or sit in anything which I'm sure contributes to it.

    What? Are they trying to preserve the rich peeps fart smells in the seats?

    I've spent quite a few hours on the Boeing production floor in Everett and Renton. A line rate of 45+ 737s a month is a rediculous production effort!

    Sadly, they wouldn't let me near the KC-46 which I have a pretty significant family connection to.
