    I have gone skydiving at "The Ranch". Skydiving teaches you one thing, it does not make a diffrence where you sit on a plane when the bird falls from the sky.

    I know we're getting off the subject of our luncheon, but we pilots like to say about skydiving: "Why would you want to step out of a perfectly functioning airplane"?

    A fly in would be great. Problem for me though is that I have not been checked out in a single in years. I am only qualified to fly airplanes over 25 tons.

    That's funny too! Come up to the Kingston area, and you you can putt around in a 172SP, at about 110 Knots. I think though, that you would be better in my 172 than I would be in your jet. Although, Bernouli's Law is the same for jets too!

    November 8! So far, is ok with me. I can suggest two restaurants in Albany that I'm familiar with: The Standard, at Crossgates and The Cheesecake Factory at Colonie. Of course, if anyone else has ideas, I'm all ears.

    I'm ok with the places you mention, would you be OK with the 15th so HK will be home from Vegas?

    That's not fair... don't pick on me! As mentioned,anytime you're up in the Hudson Valley, the ride is yours!

    Anyway I think we should postpone until after the 15th, in deference to Hitch. I'm actually in Republik of California right now, but will be back after the 1st.

    JoininNY: I am actually thinking about getting checked out again in a 172. I may look into either Danbury or Dutchess. White Plains is WAY WAY TOO expensive for aircraft rentals. I do keep, however, my CFI current.

    Unfortunately the dates mentioned in this thread will not work. I will be working.

    I don't know much about all this, but my Brother flys Lifestar/Medevac in PA. About 12 years ago give or take he was staying in CT with me and wanted to get certified in fixed wing. He went to Danbury and inspected the plane and pointed out things that needed repair. He went back a week later and nothing was done so they did not get his money. He went else where. That was a long time ago. Check it out for yourself before you commit.
