without even clicking the link and seeing what else is problematic, you have to wear a pressure suit at that altitude. if your pressurization fails, you are probably boned without it.

i can't imagine it making sense to climb all the way up to that altitude unless you've got a really long route (although depending on their claimed efficiencies maybe it changes the calculations)

Great write up on MH370. Wasn’t sure where else to share it and thought some of you would appreciate it.

cool...i'll read it later.

Flew from FL up to Roxboro to visit Dad in Durham...then down to Erwin to visit Mom in Fuquay. Dad and I flew out to Kitty Hawk and back over the weekend. Brother and I flew out to Ocracoke and back today. Flying back to FL either tomorrow or Thursday.

Meeting my Bonanza partners at a local brewery on Thursday evening to drink beers and presumably have one of the guys buy the other three of us out of the partnership, settle up any other financial dealings between us, and hopefully start the wheels turning in earnest on the other three of us buying another airplane.

Well...that sweet S35 is gone.

Bought my share for $13k, flew 50 hours in 6 months, cashed out for $14.5k. Paid prob something like $2500 in fixed costs during that 6 months, but got pro-rated almost $600 of that back...so that was very close to a wash--I flew 50 hours and took a few trips for, in the end, the cost of gas and $20/hour towards an engine fun (so prob average of $70/hour or just a little more).

One of my remaining partners doesn't want to do that Mustang II because it's a tailwheel (which he'd have to learn), and because he's moving in about a year and is gonna be gone for much of the next 3 months. He said he's open to doing something like a Glasair RG, though, even if it's a little more money.

The other guy has plenty of money, but doesn't fly much (aside from his work) and finds it tougher to justify...Hopefully I can talk him into a different plane. He's all about fast and aerobatic...just don't know how far I can push him on price before he balks.
