I think that was a wise move given your situation. Rucker is primarily a helo base, which means a lot of aircraft that spend a lot of time at low altitude - not just at the facility but also in the...

I am glad they found an alternative on private property. With the NOE route nearby, it'll pay to be vigilant, but I'm sure they'll be disciplined and fly accordingly.

Not entirely true. I used the Central California experience as an example not as justification for any particular feelings for or against AMA, but rather as an example of their short-sightedness....

I'll have to go check my notes, but I recall they quoted 140,000 a few years back. That would be quite a drop.

I have no desire to see AMA go away. What I do want is for them to once and for all:

1. Stop trying to manipulate law and regulation to compel membership, and

2. Do like other CBOs (NRA, AOPA,...

As I recall the more recent AMA releases have said "over 180,000 members." So that puts paying members at what? Around 120,000? That's down about 15% from the 140,000 or so paying members just a...

Here's the deal. Every single time there's an issue, there's a chorus that says (paraphrase) "We know the AMA has problems, but let's get past ___________ (fill in the blank) and then address the AMA...

Personal attack. I guess that's ok, but saying anything negative about AMA is not?

Not what I thought I said. Certainly not what I've seen any of them issue. What they're saying is much like what NY Governor said today. It's fine to go outside, but maintain social distancing unless...

I didn't hear it personally, but I did learn of a report that your Governor is frustrated with people still gathering. California and NY had the same problem, they tried to rely on people to do the...

I watched news conferences from both CA and NY Governors, and there's a rapidly growing frustration with those who are not following the rules they've set. My state is one step away from a shelter in...

The word "CANCELLED" in the title makes it abundantly clear. Why make people wade through all the comments to determine status? Unless one wants to make it difficult just to make it difficult.

We're very well stocked ... so I went to the shooting range. Had the place to myself. If that closes, I'll just drive out to my cabin.

I thought that might be the case, my point was that for all but those most familiar, the word "open" can be misinterpreted. I felt the far better approach is the one labelled "CANCELLED" right at the...

FYI, some of the AMA FB postings for upcoming events are confusing. Top headline may or may not indicate cancelled, when in fact it may be cancelled.

For example, see how Toledo was modified to...

This is not a matter to take lightly. Unless you've been tested, you cannot assure anyone that you're NOT a carrier. And if you don't follow the President's recommendations, you could well be...

You do realize there are walls between all those people in an apartment building? And that's quite a bit different than the same number of people being in public setting.

As of this afternoon, the recommendation is to avoid groups of ten or more (note 1). Not sure what state you're in, but many Governors are closing non-essential businesses. Here in PA that includes...

You are certainly free to do that. The problem is, it does nothing to change the CDC recommendations.
