    Looks like Win Aviation scooped up a fleet of DRMO'd USAF jump trainers. Whole fleet is Skyvans and Sherpas with the reg numbers clearly painted over the serials.

    Speaking of, the M28 looks like a hot rod in disguise. 2 PT6s in a tiny aircraft with no cargo load? :bikewheelie2: It's like an ugly, tactical King Air

    Welp I was getting excited to start flight training again until I found the e6b in my flight bag f this LOL!! I never could figure that damn thing out and whomever invented it clearly sold their soul to the devil, because no mortal human could have came up with that device.

    Maybe now that I'm 16yrs wiser I can finally master this damn thing!

    I don't know. When I got my private pilot smartphones weren't a thing yet so there wasn't that option.

    No one uses the e6b except for the written test. ForeFlight does all that for you and is approved for primary use. The FAA examiner here is interested in your real world knowledge and ability, not if you can fly the way they did when he learned.
