Procrastinating

Recommended Posts

So what does a pilot and simmer do to waste time so they don't have to do yard work.  Well they do things to keep their procedural proficiency up.  Doesn't matter if the equipment is antiquated (CIVA INS) and in the slowest possible equipment to do a ocean crossing while repainting said aircraft in a paint I'll probably never fly.  The only thing that matters is I'm still able to do post position plots on a chart thats years out of date.

And feet dry!  Man this is dragging.  Bringing back fond days of crossing the Pacific to start a TDY.  I unfortunately couldn't take all afternoon off and already got my yard work in between my plots.  For those of you who are looking for a challenge thats not your everyday run of the mill flying.  I'd suggest taking up the INS oceanic flying.  It keeps you on your toes with waypoint verifications, position updating etc.  Its highly addictive.
