Absolute last 4 PP mini-mtg pictures

Recommended Posts

I just e-mailed these to TallPilot.DanCap'n Tall's steady hands on Big Red takeoff roll. Prescott KPRC tower in background.Great "virtual cockpit view", eh ? :-kewlhttp://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d5c12fc77023c7c.jpgOur interesting departure shown below. We wanted to go northbound from 21L (7700' long - 21R is only 4400' long, over the cafe). Field Elevation is 5080'. Ed asked for for northbound overflight departure on downwind (left turn over tower), which he got "only if at least 6500 ft". No sweat in Big Red (Baron Twin). Not so easy in a C172 on a hot morning. This departure also overflies the runway 21R pattern at 5800' MSL, so not a place to run out of horsepower !!!In my rental C172, if I ask for Ground Control for "northbound" from 21L then Tower will TELL me "fly rwy hdg", and I'll only be given turn clearance "rt turn approved" after further west toward Little Granite than any t & g traffic on rwy 21R (often 2-5 ERAU students). It ain't optional. Captain Ed and Big Red get to have more options & more fun. (i.e., more respect).As a result of that departure, I got this picture, with Big Red just south of the tower. Runway 21L heading lines up between downtown Prescott and Little Granite. Granite Mt. (7640') is directly behind the window pillar.http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d5c237f31b72f68.jpgRemember that first set of pictures. I said he greased the landing on the numbers.Here's proof about "the numbers". Have to take my word about greasing it.http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d5c1dcd1ef9df53.jpgPork and Allie walking out to say goodbye to Ed before his departure.He's loading his gear on the far side. Couldn't resist a final shot of Big Red. Great plane.http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d5c21042a22c3b7.jpg

Who wrote Bomb?It's a good thing I am reading this. I shot a small display last night and didn't think about putting in ear plugs. Ohhh, I won't do that again. Well, maybe until October at the Commemorative Air Force Display.I think Pork meets a profile. Maybe two or three. Security, Security, watch him, those might be blow up sandals.Tall, are you sure that GPS can't wait a month....?Doc Bryant

Great minds ... I had the very same thought, Doc.No races or overbooked hotels with cheesy casinos here (our hotels have cheesy casinos all right, but the rooms are not occupied.)Plenty of interesting activities - deep-sea fishing, golf on treacherous seaside courses, sun on the beach, tour of the colonial city, cigar factories for the cognoscenti.In the tradition of the Porkster, I promise to provide the shirts for all.Now, Tom, you and the staff are always bragging about how AvSim is an international site. So, why not hold an international conference as well as the national event? It would save me the air fare.And maybe Ed would fly down and give me the famous ride in Big Red. Well, I can dream, can't I?Best regards.Luis

>Now, Tom, you and the staff are always bragging about how >AvSim is an international site. So, why not hold an >international conference as well as the national event? It >would save me the air fare. Luis, I know I would love to do that, but I guess one of the realities of the situation is that maybe most of the staff wouldn't be able to afford to attend then. Little hard to pull off a conference with no staff. It would have to be a party in the truest sense. :-)Seriously, the topic of having a conference outside the US is always brought up, it is just figuring the timing when most of the staff can make it to bring it together.

Scott:I am figuring the Hotel Casino's take will be down with it filled with MS types. Probably they better put in more nickel slots!I like the idea of a conference with no staff. Almost as much fun as a meeting with no bosses in attendence.The Avsim In Absentia Conference and Congress Internationale.A bottle or two of Ron Anejo Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva and a couple of boxes of Bolivars ought to make a nice reason for a Conference. With or with out the shirt.Doc Bryant

Scott old Top:I can't see why you should take umbrage at the Absentia Conference.Pro Pilot as a viable sim is surely in absentia.Most of the rabble are in absentia*New additions to the program are in absentia.And you pop in and out semi regularly. At least the dog still recognizes you.So, if no one shows up at the Conference and Congress, well, it will be successful. And especially if no one from the ruling class shows up, it will be so very successful that the powers that be should think of doing one again next year.Doc BryantSense in Absentia*Obviously those wonderful folk who have hung on such as Jerry, Dan, Brother Luis, Meekal, Tall, Lindy, and others semi numerous to mention are not in absentia, and therefore are not rabble.

Hello Scott,I perfectly understand the impediments to holding an international conference. But, the issue of cost may be overestimated.I have checked on the price for air fare from New York to Charlotte and found it monstrously high, much more than the fare for New York to London (via U.S. Airways, which makes me wonder how they went bankrupt with such high fares, old airplanes, and meager service.)Flights here from New York or Miami are only around $300 (that is U.S. dollars) round trip (special pricing, of course.)And maybe Jerry could donate his free miles to AvSim - then, all 6000 members could probably fly to the AvSim International Conference and Exposition in Cancun.Well, if it can't be done, it just can't be done.
