A few feathers

http://the103.club/locations-map/

I've been helping to fill out a map of sites. Granted; many of them are primarily PG spots.... but that's a lot of free flight!

Progress

Sam,

I have been super happy with that fact about Utah Land. Other than NPS creating some interesting conflicts in their "delivery of persons" policies; I am unaware of any other public land which actually requires membership of any specific club or assn., Have you encountered any?

Why do you all even care?

You don't trust your current representatives to represent you. USHPA membership really isn't required to fly most places. The private sites requiring USHPA membership are *MOSTLY* training sites. I genuinely don't expect the *MEGA SITES* to be USHPA-only much longer. (Though, I will admit you've bur...

Even Better.

Joe, you rock. My intentions, if poorly communicated, are that; IF we MUST have a rating (despite FAR 103, I still don't understand ignoring FAA rulings) why not make it as simple as possible? More flying, less BS.

The value of time.

I actually agree with a majority of what you have said. Especially the bit about respecting time. So why are we stuck on such an inefficient and subjective test method? The (official) requirements are quite simple and straight forward. If we were testing to the official standard a pilot could send i...

No

Just no. Joining an organization that refuses to address even very simple, solvable problems while demanding blind obedience just isnt in my nature. It certainly isn't freedom.

Join or you are wrong.

I am and have been sincere. Claiming that membership is a requirement for communication doesn't demonstrate a willingness on your part to understand or change. 6 pages and nobody has been willing to address the core problems.

Fortune cookies.

So Ben... Does that mean we can work on objective and efficient test methods?

Tests

Ben, I have no problem with tests, I honestly don't even care about the money...... My joining USHPA does nothing to solve the problem of a system which is designed to extract money from people for the simple enjoyment of their public land. If you want to design a simple and efficient test, I'm your...

Addressing the issue.

Doug M, I want to address the problem. How is that spitting in faces?
