Do you wish you could listen to XM Sirius satellite radio while piloting?

Do I wish? I already do! I get spotify direct to my phone and connect to Bluetooth to my aviation headset, so I can fly and jam out to Gambino at the same time!
iwas99x4 karma2017-05-21 07:44:15 UTC
That is allowed?
MrCudou20 karma2017-05-21 07:46:53 UTC
Of course! so long as we can still hear ATC clearly, there's no regulation for listening to music :D
Most headsets come with Bluetooth capability, and auto-reduce the volume of the input when ATC talks

What was the closest you got to another aircraft while in the air?
MrCudou12 karma2017-05-21 07:55:04 UTC
Close enough to see the other guys mustache! :O
romeostasis75 karma2017-05-21 07:56:09 UTC
did you died????
MrCudou11 karma2017-05-21 07:57:54 UTC
No (I hope), but a safety report had to be filed with the FAA, it was a mistake on the controllers part for thinking that we were already on the ground, but in reality we were still about 1 mile away!

Are you a good driver?
MrCudou4 karma2017-05-21 08:13:20 UTC
I speed frequently (no tickets though), but my automotive record in terms of accidents is totally clean :)
iwas99x2 karma2017-05-21 07:48:06 UTC
Do you fly r/c planes or drones or no?
MrCudou3 karma2017-05-21 07:54:05 UTC
R/C? No. Drones? Absolutely.
iwas99x1 karma2017-05-21 07:33:45 UTC
Why are you awake right now?
MrCudou5 karma2017-05-21 07:37:25 UTC
Excellent question. I am currently watching episodes of "Disney's Abandoned" on YouTube and checking my ranarr crops on OSRS :D
iwas99x1 karma2017-05-21 07:53:02 UTC
Do you share one apartment with 4 other pilots?
MrCudou3 karma2017-05-21 07:58:52 UTC
Yes actually! one from Texas, one from Ohio, and one from the UK

Have you flown around the globe to disprove the "earth is flat" theory??
MrCudou8 karma2017-05-21 06:56:50 UTC
Theory? Excuse me sir but that "theory" is supported by hard fact science based evidence!
(But really though) No, I don't have to constantly push the nose down to "correct" for the Earth's curve. Yes, you can in fact see the curve of the earth at high latitudes, and yes I have flown around the globe on several occasions!
QuicksilverSwaggan3 karma2017-05-21 07:19:36 UTC
I've never really thought about planes having to nose down to keep "parallel" with the earth!
Wish you all the best for your career!
MrCudou6 karma2017-05-21 07:22:02 UTC
Oh yes! That is actually part 4 of our training at Tinfoil-Hat Air Lines ;)

How much do they pay you to release HAARP chemical agents in the sky?
No, but seriously, is it true that people living under flightpaths shoot at planes? I remember hearing that somewhere but I don't remember where or whether it was reliable.
MrCudou7 karma2017-05-21 07:31:20 UTC
Unfortunately we HAve A swoRn duty not to mention anything about suPposed leaKed "chemIcaL agents" so i am not sure what exactLy it iS you are referring to...
As for being shot at, the only thing I can relate with that is getting shot at by annoyed citizens with laser pointers :P
iwas99x0 karma2017-05-21 07:41:23 UTC
Did you forget to put a small roundish square icon next to your posting and did they mods forget to Mark your AMA"LIVE"?
MrCudou2 karma2017-05-21 07:45:00 UTC
Not sure how to check either of those...
