Still Around

Yes, the IFR Pilot does still exist. There simply hasn't been much flying lately, due to the crummy state of the weather in the Great Lakes. Even last night, after blue skies all afternoon, arrival at the Home Base was greeted with the contemporaneous arrival of a low-hanging post-rain scud that made even pattern work a no-go. *sigh* We'll try again tonight.

In the meantime, here's what arrived in today's "West Headnote of the Day":

West's Key 48B Aviation
West's Key 48BIII Airmen
West's Key 48Bk122 k. Certificate or license in general.

48B AviationIt was not abuse of discretion for the Federal Aviation Agency to reject individual application for exemptions from the Agency's "Age 60 Rule" even if applicant demonstrated that he personally was a Superman immune from impairments that age normally inflicts.
