re: Looking for a good pair of earbuds - Furbs311 on 11/26/15 at 7:28 pm
Don't know about deals, but I recently got a pair of the Bose QC 20s and so far have no complaints. First ear buds I've had that are comfortable to wear for long periods of time and don't fall out when running, etc ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How crazy do you have to be to fly through a hurricane? - Furbs311 on 10/24/15 at 6:30 am
From the wing and cockpit shots it looks like NOAAs P-3. I don't know much about hurricane hunters, but the turboprop might be better for certain data collection missions, like being able to fly lower and slower for longer periods of time. NOAA does have a Gulfstream but I think it's used for measur...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Best Headset for Traveling - Furbs311 on 10/6/15 at 4:50 am
Good info. Bacon, the battery thing gives me pause too. From what I read the battery will last 16 hours for 500 cycles and then degrade from there, so it's not like it stops working but there's no way to know how long it will last. Probably my biggest hang up ...

Best Headset for Traveling - Furbs311 on 10/5/15 at 8:14 pm
I do a good bit of international traveling and I'm looking for recommendations on headsets for those 10+ hour flights. I've been using the Bose QC 15s but I'm thinking about trying the QC 20. I've never been much of an earbud guy but I like to sleep with the noise canceling on and the on-ear headpho...

re: Looking forward to the game Saturday - Furbs311 on 10/5/15 at 5:41 pm
I'm guessing Darla Moore B-School is high and dry? I'm coming from Hilton Head for an all day Saturday class (thanks USC) if the roads are clear by then. Hoping for a class cancellation so I can use my tickets! :lol: ...

re: Any OT pilots? - Furbs311 on 8/12/15 at 6:19 am
I've shared my story here before. I started doing flight training out of high school at a local airport while starting college classes. By the time I finished my degree I had all my ratings. I got a job with a corporate flight department, basically doing whatever they would let me, washing planes, a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Savannah area golf - Furbs311 on 4/7/15 at 5:14 am
Savannah Harbor is the one at the Westin across from downtown. Nice but a little over priced and the gnats will eat you alive this time of year. Use to have Sr. tour event there until a few years ago. Lots of options in Hilton Head-Port Royal is one of my favorites, 3 very different courses to c...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Private Plane Owners - Furbs311 on 3/25/15 at 9:43 pm
You are correct. X came out first, then the 650 which made it the fastest. Then Citation revamped the X with new avionics and bumped up the speed a little and called it the X+. They will just keep going back and forth until someone finally figures out how to do Mach 1 efficiently. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Private Plane Owners - Furbs311 on 3/25/15 at 9:38 pm
[quote]what about that Global thing?[/quote] The Globals challenege the 650 on range but not speed. Actually the G650 was the fastest at .925 Mach until the Citataion X+ came out at .935. Nothing on the market beats the range/speed combination of the G650 though. It just did a round the world...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
