Overall, I really liked the aesthetics of the Andromeda ship -- but I was particularly entranced by this arboretum/greenhouse!
Now, get ready for the hot take: this kinda puts Keiko O'Brien's arboretum on the Enterprise to shame... 😅
No beautiful footage of today's sunset flight, as the need to take-off before sundown ensured that only the essential safety prep could be done. Nonetheless, a preternaturally smooth "flight simulator" circuit around Rufforth was achieved, and a successful check ride for solo...

The latest Fountain Pen First Impressions video is now available for your viewing pleasure.
In this video I am focusing on the Pilot Elite E95S fountain pen.
We take a look at the pen and how it writes with Diamine Diamine Ancient Copper ink.
Stumbled across a YouTube channel run by a female pilot.
Tuned in excitedly, as most prominent aviation YouTubers are guys.
Turned on a video talking about an increase in recent midflight issues, only to hear her say:
“Could it be diversity coming home to roost?”
*stomach-lurching record scratch*
(She’s a woman, but a white woman.)
Downvoted the video.

Pilot vs Lokführer
Immer wieder wird der Vergleich von Lokführer und Piloten gebracht. Doch wieviel ist da wirklich dran, wie nah beieinander sind diese beiden Berufe. In dieser Sonderfolge klären wir die Frage, was beide Berufe gemein haben und was nicht. Viel Spaß beim reinhören.

Flight to Paso Robles, CA (PRB) to visit on-airport Estrella Warbirds Museum and get brunch. Just taxi over to the museum, park your plane across from DC-3 and come-on-it!!
Headwinds and tailwinds, 3.8h on the hobbs, and ~12 direct crosswind on landing upon return - no problem.
This was my second time at the Estrella Warbirds Museum and first time checking out their automotive collection. One-Niner-Diner's biscuits and gravy are A+ :)

It was a beautiful evening for a walk in Manhattan.
Just a bit of chill in the air. The streets bustling with life and a very specific energy like nowhere else on Earth. 🗽🌃🍁
A perfect kite flying day - a warm and windy Sunday in November on Ljubljana Marshes landscape park.
Huge fan of Captain Deborah Laurie. An inspiration 4 sure!
And yes, I have had the honour of being a passenger on one of her flights #female #pilot

"Off-duty pilot who tried to cut engines took mushrooms for 1st time before flight, complaint says"
I'm seeing a ton of headlines making a case about the mushrooms.
The guy took those mushrooms 48 hours prior to the incident. I've not taken mushrooms, but there's no substance I've taken that would affect me that long.
He also admitted to depression, having not slept in 40 hours prior to the incident, having experience the death of a friend recently. These all seem to me more important than the mushrooms.
I'm not saying the mushrooms should be disregarded but they are more indicating of his state of mind, then a cause for the crash.
Even in the article, you find this:
Police reported that Emerson did not appear to be intoxicated at the time of the interview, and in a statement Tuesday, Alaska Airlines, which owns Horizon, said neither the gate agents nor flight crew noticed any signs of impairment that might have barred him from the flight.
But let's focus on the damn mushrooms, shall we? Because moral panics do sell.
"Mushrooms almost crash plane!!!!" 😱
Kolejna ciekawostka z wczorajszej trasy: Maryja ze wsi Lipa (województwo wielkopolskie, gmina Szamocin), jedyne znane mi połączenie figury religijnej na skraju wsi ze świeckim pomnikiem.
Na cokole pod Marią znajdują się: biały orzeł bez korony, tablica z napisem „Królowo Korony Polskiej błogosław nam. 1946.”, kolorowa płaskorzeźba wojskowego górnopłatowca lecącego w chmurach wraz ze zdjęciem młodej osoby w mundurze oraz tabliczka „Ku pamięci polskiego lotnika pilota mechanika Edwarda Ruchalskiego który zginął śmiercią bohaterską dnia 27.11.1942.”
Próbowałem znaleźć jakieś informacje o pilocie i jedyne, na co trafiłem to informacje o pochówku na cmentarzu Friedhof Perlacher Forst w Monachium: Edward Ryszard Ruchalski, urodzony 7.5.1922 w Lipie, ślusarz, stracony w więzieniu München Stadelheim 21.11.1942.
Ktoś się musiał pomylić przy robieniu tablicy albo przy wprowadzaniu danych do archiwum, bo między datami jest sześć dni różnicy.
Nie udało mi się ustalić, jaki samolot ma przedstawiać płaskorzeźba. W tamtych czasach mógł być to jakiś PZL P-6 czy P-11, ale żaden z nich nie ma tych dziwnych wycięć w skrzydłach. Chyba artystę poniosła fantazja.

As part of my ongoing celebration of my path in aviation, I finished a page in my log book a few days ago. I used to post this on facebook but it is basically a disaster zone of a platform so I am posting it here. The slow march of progress continues on! (I also use this as an opportunity to reconcile my digital logs with my paper logs to make sure everything is being tracked as expected)

More celebrations: after having not flown IFR (instrument flight rules) in 18 months I passed my IPC (instrument proficiency check) today. The check consisted of three flights, detailed ground instruction, 6 approaches, two holds, partial panel work (aka the instrument covered up instruments to simulate failure), circling approach, precision and non-precision, a VOR approach, and overall felt very thorough. Maybe this time I won't let my currency lapse long enough so I don't have to get another IPC again.
Anyway, I can now legally fly in the clouds again!

Angelisqatsi – Life Out of Body
This is a short "ambient" film, "Angelisqatsi" is an homage to the classic #koyaanisqatsi Life Out Of Balance
About 6 minutes of imagery shot around LA and SoCal, set to Phillip Glass music and inspired by the work of Godfrey Reggio and Ron Fricke.
Shot with DJI, finished in DaVinci Resolve.
I did some flying Today from 79C, around over Appleton WI, up to KCLI, over to KPCZ, and then back to 79C. The clouds stayed high and the winds were actually calm. It was a very nice day for flying.
(one image marked NSFW for eye contact and also because it is my face)

This appears to be, in large part, because the tests are absolute garbage. They are ambiguously-worded, they have questions about ratings you're not even trying to get, and the charts they provide have larger margins of error than the gap between answers.
If this test weren't so incompetently assembled, they could require 90% to pass and have more qualified pilots as a result.

Just did a pass on a spec pilot script I wrote years ago to be able to show it to a friend and have it be stronger. And I am happy to find: I think I'm a better writer now! That's nice to find.
The pilot episode is The Temptress' Chest: Isle of the Amazons.
Swashbuckling fun, a sea monster, caves, cages, a showdown between pirates and the Amazons. The heroes are scouring the Caribbean to find a chest discovered long ago by the Templars in Jerusalem.
There are some more boutique brands like #Leonardo that seem to go much harder, doing small-batch editions of a few hundred pens, some of which sell out in a month or two. This video gives you an idea of hype: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3bZ23wcNQw
#Pilot in Japan (their home market) does in-store event exclusives that sometimes sell out same-day.
My only experience with #Pilot nibs is through my Capless Fermo, Elite, E95s or Falcon. Oh, I also bought a stub nib unit for a Vanishing Point which I’ve used in Majohn A1s. I’m interested in the SU, the FA, and the PO from @penaddict ‘s article. I wish I could buy the #nibs separately! #FountainPens

Пилот ВКС сбежал из России и поговорил с Би-би-си
Suggested translation v @joosteto:
What is a line of code if not something you write in order to pass an action along to another action, which will ideally result in the intended outcome? What are these websites or applications for, that you painstakingly build, character by character, until you finally have a #pilot project ready for consumption? Then it's time to ask users to interface with your masterpiece, to inform you where there are faults in your scribbles.
You often wonder, as you type the millionth identifier and send the thousandth email request, why you expect for users to test your pilot application, but you shy away from opening yourself up to harmful critique on your writing. What is writing if not a medium for reaching out to an audience and asking them to respond in a certain way?
And today I learned that #aviation fuel scented candles are a thing and now I'm questioning my life choices.
Had a bittersweet #aviation moment today. Was flying to Rochelle, IL (KRPJ) for breakfast. In route found out the winds were too high so I diverted to Madison (KMSN) to have breakfast at The Jet Room. Got to park right out in front of the restaurant.
After I was seated, I heard a kid behind me get all excited that the #pilot who had just landed was sitting near them in the restaurant. But then I heard them ask their mom "Girls can fly airplanes too?".
While I was thrilled the just my simple visibility caused so much excitement for this child, I was also sad. It's depressing that thanks to only 7% of pilots being female, this kid didn't even know it was a possibility. Well, one life changed for the better, I hope.

Sometimes I swear, the arrogance of men on the internet, especially in #aviation circles, is dumbfounding. I dared to share the cost of my plane's first annual (warning, it was a big one) and of course immediately there's people calling me an idiot for paying so much, accusing my mechanics of ripping me off, etc.
Oh happy day!!
It's officially official that I'm official.
10 weeks after passing my check ride I finally have my permanent #pilot certificate. This puts the truest "DONE" stamp on my dream. #HackerFlightSchool is a true success (even though it's not done, onward to instrument training next).
