enough
You will not be allowed to log flight time since you are not flying an aircraft. You are flying a remote controlled vehicle. Same as the guy at the local park. Sorry but true.

I'm sure eventually they'll be selling logbooks with a UAV column. And by that time, the airlines will be specifically prohibiting it. (It's not going to do you any good right now anyway.)

Sorry, but worthless. Heck, the Predator's controls don't even work like an airplane anyway - the thing was designed by engineers that never set foot inside a cockpit.

Could be useful if you're looking for a job flying UAVs. The guys working for me logged all their time in the "box" for that reason.

Really? You wrote that?

I'll trade with you. You tell me what that gibberish means, and I tell you what the inside of a vagina feels like.

actually back in thoes days (college), not to brag but mr. willy got alot of excercise (not by hand either) from plenty of sorority and nonsorority girls. I found the non soroity types harder to land but once you did they always turned out more fun/adventureous.;)

You had to call your roommate, "Mr"?

Awkward...

1. An engineer who hasn't yet mastered the always-tricky Spell Checker?

2. "soroity" = inflatable?

3. "landing"? Um...you're doing it wrong. One lands an airplane...and bones a female.

Buck up, bubba. Someday you'll meet your dream girl...a gal who takes checks.
