When I was working on my pilot's license in high-school (one of the
perks of being home schooled) I weight all of about 140lbs, and the
first time I soloed without my 240lb instructor I was a bit shocked.
Let's just say those little four seaters don't exactly fly like a 747.
It's more like flying a go kart. So yeah, if you get sick in a normal
plane, don't fly private. It won't help.

I must be the only person here that actually enjoys flying. I even
travel with a MBP, and haven't had issues with it getting mishandled.
Infact on my last few flights from Chicago to Denver, the never even
touched my stuff. They may have messed some stuff up in my check-in
when they searched it, I couldn't tell, I never exactly pack neatly.

But I agree, the security is getting a tad out of hand.


Two wrights don't make a rong, they make an airplane. Or bicycles.
