Decisions, decisions. I might react similar to Chuck here, because as a libra, I tend to be indecisive. Fortunately my ascendant sign is sagittarius, which means I don’t believe in astrology!
I have my own logbook, with exactly one hour of instruced flying logged. The (very patient) flight instructor was a close relative of mine (guess who), and the model we flew was the Schweizer 300 that is featured in today’s strip. I sure thought there was a lot of glass around the cockpit too!
Oh, and sorry for the slight delay with today’s upload,. Some days, it just seems that everybody wants to talk to you at the same time, and as soon as you hang up the phone, the next person calls you…
I already mentioned this in our Facebook group, but for those who didn’t see that: I will be going to AERO in a couple of weeks. We don’t have a table, so I will be roaming around the premises on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th.
Since it’s my first time, and I don’t have a base of operations there, I have no idea how to do this, but if any of you out there want to meet up, please get in touch with me! Or look out for a guy with a Chicken Wings t-shirt, when you’re there. I will not, as some people suggested, run around in a chicken costume!
I’m in a really big hurry today and can’t think of anything smart or funny to write, so I guess I better don’t write anything then. But damn! I can’t seem to even get that right, since I obviously just failed at not writing anything!
Anybody who has ever been to the International Helicopter Expo will know about the “bag of swag”, the tote-bag of helicopter related gift and promo items that gets heavier as the day goes on. Some people even seem to have turned this into a sport of some kind.
So when Vertical Magazine asked us to make a comic about HAI, the big bag everybody carries around was the first thing we thought of. And I am sure this will not come as a surprise to you that Chuck is taking the promo gift collecting to a whole different level.
And I have an announcement to make:
Meet me at the Vertical Magazine Annual Beer Party at booth C4125 today between 3pm and 5pm! I’d love to meet with the helicopter guys among you all who can make it to HAI Heli-Expo in Las Vegas this year! Every time the show finds itself in Vegas, it always seems to be the biggest Convention with the most people for some reason. I am not quite sure why that is
It sure is better to see the traffic from up above than from down below. Although, the best thing is to see no traffic at all, which would be such an easy thing to do if other people would be a little bit more considerate about my schedule. But as Confucius said, “You are not just in the traffic jam, you are the traffic jam.”
Well, at least the Red Flapper didn’t fly into the tail rotor!
There is one bird here close to my house that I wouldn’t mind being blown away though. That bugger is so unbelievably loud, and starts chirping every day at the crack of dawn. It seems that he’s waking all the other birds up as well. My theory is that what then follows for two hours is all the birds screaming “Shut up! I’m trying to sleep!” “No, you shut up!” “You all shut up!” at each other.
That’s approximately what I sometimes write, when a company asks me me on their website or a form, how I found them. Sometimes I also just write “Igor sent me.” with my left hand. That thing with the left hand doesn’t work on websites though…
Still, it’s not prohibited to look sharp at all times, right? After all, pilots need to inspire confidence among their victims. I mean passengers!
Before you write to tell us that this time we’ve gone too far in portraying Sally as stupid, let us assure you that this is based on a true story and only very slightly exaggerated!
