The FAA does not define congested areas or densely populated areas in the Federal Aviation Regulations or the Aeronautical Information Manual.Could you please tell me what are
It looks to me like you actually started from northern NJ. We're you really able to follow that route? The corridor between the Newark and Philadelphia Mode-C veils is only about 10nm wide, and I thought I saw that the Bedminster presidential TFR was in effect last weekend, which would have totally closed that corridor off.This coming weekend I am picking up a C-172 I just purchased from south Jersey. To fly it home from there to North Georgia, I will weave through the Class E airspace to the coast and follow the coast almost to Myrtle Beach, remaining in Class E. Only once will I be required to divert inland, to avoid a Restricted Area in North Carolina.
Yes, I realize this is a rotorcraft forum but MOST aviators, no matter what genre, are interested in people's stories. If you don't like it here...just keep walking, there's nothing to see here.What type of Gyro are you attempting to fly to Florida ? If it is an open frame vs a semi or enclosed gyro, you may receive different responses.
Please accept my sincere apology. I did misunderstand your comment. What I thought it was saying in a sarcastic way was "This is a ROTORCRAFT forum. No one is interested in your damn airplane stories." Let's flush itBryan it reads like you took my comment totally incorrectly. I thought you were thinking of flying a Gyro and switched to the Cessna. I don’t understand the aggression.
Exactly. Radios are expensive, a paintjob is expensive, and I did not want a "project." My sole reason to buy a plane is to get my kid's license for free and then sell. If I had to get radios and paint to make Mom and the kid feel positive about getting in it, owning would be no cheaper than renting the FBO's 172's. In short, when I was a few seconds from signing my Title and getting his signed FAA Bill of Sale, it just did not feel right.So you had a deal to buy the airplane but then rejected it when you saw it because of the paint job and two bad radios?
