East pilots do not visit pilot forums were most pilots are in there 20's and 30's. Easties are in their late 50's and you will have a hard time finding any real USAIR pilots visting this site. Maybe some 190 pilots in their 30's. Good luck finding a mouthpiece for the East Pilots on this forum.
By the way, you flew a An-2, now that's really cool. Any pics?
Thanks Rez! There's a An-2 over at Chino, don't know if it is flying anymore. What was the purpose of the air brake on the yoke?
The much more relevant question is what are the feelings about changing USAPA and joining a real union
Flew the AN2 in Budapest... paid a burned out "soviet bloc" pilot a handful on Forint and D-Marks. Pretty cool airplane. The air brake on the yoke was interesting... great perfomance.
I understand the same motor on the An2 was also on the Russian version of the DC3.
PM an email and I'll send pics....
