The Envelope ✈

Aviation, 80's pop culture, vintage.

Is it wrong of me to think it’s common sense that if you had to move my airplane anyway, why not move it perhaps off to the side of where you’re parking the ERJ instead of right behind it? Idk.

I get real nervous when line guys start marshaling me because I literally don’t know a single hand signal other than left/right and stop.

good-and-colorful asked: Hi, Buster! Thank you for following me! That's awesome that you're a private pilot! What kind of airplane do you own/fly? (I'm taking lessons in a Cessna 172 Skyhawk. 40 hours, 2 of them solo.)

And thanks for following me back, I love your blog ‘cause I don’t get much space stuff on my dash. I fly a 1974 Cessna 172M ‘Superhawk’. Basically they just swapped out the 160hp engine for a 180hp and upped the max gross weight from 2300lbs to 2550lbs. It climbs like a rocket with just me in it. Anyway, I have about 150hrs, about 100 of which are PIC. I hope your training goes well! Keep in touch about it.
