I don’t think it has been said in a while but kudos to the webmaster of this forum. The forum and associated website are doing an excellent job of keeping us interested and informed.
Also, the forum becomes more valuable and useful as more folks chime in. Keep up the great discussions!
Ps - I did my recurrent IFR training work today with my 70 +/- year old instructor (he’s been flying since 1943). I do this every 4 to 6 months to keep the old gears (mine, and I’m not even half his age) greased so to speak. As you can imagine, the use of the autopilot is prohibited. Didn’t realize how dependent I had become on this device and I had a couple of 300 foot plus altitude diversions (typically above where I was supposed to be, somewhat safer but not what I look for in my flying)
Anyhow, I realized my scan had gotten very sloppy in a short period of time. Anyone got any ideas on how to maintain a good scan when away from the weather for a month or two?
