Not a real pilot unless your pen costs more than $40
Jesus Murphy.... if that’s how much you spend on a pen, how much did you pay for your “real pilot” watch?
Zebra F701 is very durable, sexy, moddable, and is $6 on amazon.
I use these little rubber grippers; downside is they eventually get stretched out like Cartman’s mom and have to be replaced (annually, roughly). But while they’re tight they’re the bees’ knees. http://flying-geek.blogspot.com/2018/06/stylus-holder.html Also keep a couple in the pen loops of my “center console.” http://flying-geek.blogspot.com/2018/04/pirep-between-seats-storage-for-mooney.html
Oh god "like cartmans mom"
You can get penpals at walmart for dirt cheap FYI, no need to pay shipping and a sportys mark up
I don't even know where a Wal-Mart is (seriously, there are like none in L.A.). I think the opportunity cost associated with traveling to one is likely a lot higher than the $18-for-10 I'm paying on Amazon, once a decade or so, to have 'em shipped to my door.
On amazon for even cheaper, prime eligible.
I attached a string to my kneeboard and tied it to my pen since I always drop them in flight.
Anyone else clip cheep pens to these things?
I’m a nerd and always fly with a shirt with a pocket and now I always know where my pen is.
I "stole" a lanyard from work and clipped a pen to the lanyard. If I need to write something down I can just let go of the pen when I'm done, no chance of it slipping when I try to put it in my pocket or pen clip and falling on the floor.
Get a kneeboard with penholders. It's really useful to have everything right in front of you, and not need to go reaching for it midflight.
Yes lifting my arm to the dash really slows me down...
Is this a Millennium?
Not mine but yes it is
Nice. My school has a Millennium too. 139ME.
Ours has 2, I hate the callsign... dunno what it is but I can never say NinerMikeEcho without stepping on my tongue.
Niner my gecko
Try taking your shoes off.
Funny. I soloed and did my PPL checkride in N319ME. I have a mush mouth, too, but never seemed to have trouble with that one. But, something ending in 7UN is my worst nightmare.
In the archer i just stick the pen on my ASA kneeboard leg strap. In the mooney we have those little spring/expanding things mounted to the side of the cockpit.
Better than using it for an actual GoPro since I can’t get mine to last longer than an hour anyway.
Really, get a camera on that mount and film some awesome pilot footage.
I made a Velcro wrap that goes around my arm. I have Velcro wrapped around pens and I stick them to my arm.
