Nope, but you were in the SASCAR IRC server one year for the Daytona 500 and we figured out he was two people either below or above (can't remember which) you on the seniority list there. His name was Tyler and I think he was LGA based for a bit before getting ORD.

once local governments figure out this is possible about half the airports in the USA are going to require commercial airliners to take off like this

Bringing this old post back because I just saw it but I think the biggest problem with implementing this for every TO is that you would only be able to do a fraction of the number of normal TO and landings per runway per day.

Any guesses why we (the western US) just got some big blocks of Class G up to 14.5 show up again recently on sectionals? Until something like 10 or 20 years ago, we had these tall G blocks, but they switched them to E -- so it was always a curiosity pointing them out on the old sectionals on the wall of my flight school. Curious if anyone has a better guess than "they wanted to turn them back into G".

Did Victor airways disappear, that the E was for?

Probably not enough utilization as controlled airspace to bother.

Nope. The airways havenít moved.

The airspace in question is up around MSO and GPI, for reference. I donít know the answer either

Nah, I don't think there were airways there, and they are still broken up around the airways.

Almost certainly true, just seems like a weird thing to change.

Totally guessing here, but maybe it had something to do with radar coverage? I know Kalispell has poor radar coverage at low altitudes, and I'm pretty sure the same is true for Missoula, so that may have something to do with the G vs E airspace decision making at the FAA.

It's also possible that some GPS routes or something else not shown on sectionals changed and influenced the decision, but I learned long ago not to ask why the FAA does anything.

I like the part where they decided that the altimeter setting was a heading to turn to while taxiing.

Holy mother of Jesus. Is it allowed for the controller to say "8236B, return to your parking space and prepare to copy a number for your instructor to call?"

Like she sounds so green it's not even her own fault. She should never have been allowed out solo

Thats what I was thinking. That person was definitely not ready to fly solo. Being nervous as poo poo is one thing. Being unable to follow taxi directions on the ground is another.

Also LOL @ ď...you never asked me...Ē
