The News

So I’ve mentioned a few times that things have been quite busy around here. Too busy to work on the book and too busy to do much posting or sim flying. The reason is that next week the Glideslope household moves from the Philadelphia area to the Tampa area. So expect a change of scenery in real-world flight posts, and know that I’m looking forward to learning a whole new area and airspace. It’s not quite certain where I will complete my training. My CFI here just got a job flying jets (which is great news), so I need to change instructors regardless. My work will keep me coming to Philadelphia often enough that I could theoretically take the final cross-countries and check-ride prep here, but my gut tells me that will probably happen in Tampa and that I will probably fly out of Albert Whitted.

More important for purposes of the blog is the sim. I built it expecting to take it apart one day, and while it’s not a short job, it shouldn’t be too complicated. Tomorrow is sim deconstruction day, and I’ll take pictures. Mrs. Glideslope has been good enough to grant the sim space in our new home. It’s probably going to be a large closet, but that’s the advantage of such a small cabin (and this might also be the time where I abandon the projector in favor of a 70-inch front screen, if I can manage one).

So that’s the latest, and as always, thanks for sticking with the blog while posting has been light.

Quite Busy

There’s a lot happening in the Glideslope household, so posting is light. But I have been fortunate to stay with my practice, including today. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.
