1. Captain, if the problem is not entered into the technical logbook.........then the aircraft does not have a problem.
2. And, if you have time to write the fault on a napkin and attach to it to the yoke.........you have time to write it in the tech log....see point 1.

Wonderful news, Matt!

It was Looking Glass Studios and Flight Unlimited II that first dragged me, kicking and screaming, over to North America for everything to do with Flight Sims. which has resulted in me being addicted to all the wonderful variation in the scenery there; North, South, East, and West.
I know the whole of the USA like the back of my hand now!
Together with all my American and Canadian Motorcycle Chums, most of my Internet time every day is spent across the Pond, conversing with them!
With the present Google Satellite Street Maps, I am able to walk around Half Moon Bay, etc, at ground level now!
...much more realistic than Flight Unlimited II ever was!
Take care Matt, enjoy the trip, and while you are there, don't forget to pop up to Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley to sample some of that excellent California Vino!
...I get mine from Sainsbury's...LOL...!

Paul.... :D ... :D ...!

It was a great holiday, 3000 miles driven in total throughout California and Nevada.
My wife has relatives a spit from Sonoma and Napa, we know the area well. Her aunt lives in Santa Rosa, devastated by fires two years ago if you recall the news. We had a couple of friends who lost everything except their night clothes, pets and cars that's how quickly they had to leave. This trip we visited Francis For Coppola's vineyard. A friend of a friend has worked there for the last 30 years and we got a back scenes tour, a cracking day and we came away with this........I am looking forward to Saturday night with my good lady wife..... :D

And fingers crossed, my bike has its TÜV (MOT) today........ :shock:
