re: Anybody else grow tired of how the NHC and media are desperate for an awful hurricane? - Furbs311
Matthew definitely wasn't a giant storm, but we are still cleaning up here in Hilton Head. My church actually held a neighborhood work day today to work on storm damaged homes. ...

re: The most airplane you can buy for $225,000 - Furbs311
Like others have said, it depends on a lot. What are you wanting to do with it? How many people typically? How far? How often? What's your skill level as a pilot-private? Instrument? You say maintenance isn't important, but with a twin engine, those costs go up pretty dramatically. But with no i...

re: Electronics ban expanding... - Furbs311
My international trips are usually less than 4 days of travel, so I rarely check a bag which saves lots of time, especially when coming home and having to reclaim baggage in ATL or JFK. This will blow, especially if I can't watch my movies on the iPad! ...

Excel Macro Help - Furbs311
Hi All, anyone a pro with macros in excel? I'm creating a checklist with a check box next to each task that when selected grays out the row and adds the date it was completed. Problem is if I use the formula "=Today()" for the macro the spreadsheet changes every day. I tried recording the macro usin...

re: Things to do in Portland, Maine? - Furbs311
I haven't been to Portland, but the wife and I spent a long weekend in Bar Harbor last October and had a great time. I would consider renting a car and driving up US 1 for the weekend, maybe stay at a little B&B somewhere. If you're flying, Bangor isn't too far away to leave from ...

re: Upgrading Air - Furbs311
Just assuming because you're going to AMS you might be flying delta. I fly through there a lot for work, most of the time in business class. But if I was doing a personal honeymoon type trip, I wouldn't do it. First, it's going to be expensive if you don't have points to spend -- that's money I'...

re: May need help from a Delta member on here - Furbs311
Definitely do it, it's super easy. You should see some MP signs as you walk up to customs, just follow them. As soon as you land, fill out the questions and generate the QR code. Just have that up on your phone and flash it to the attendant directing people into different lines. They will send you r...

re: May need help from a Delta member on here - Furbs311
I NEVER go through CDG anymore. Between Air France strikes and that crappy airport, there's always issues. For the record, I've done Aeroflot before and it was actually really nice, at least internationally. I'm actually in Moscow now headed back to the states tomorrow morning but taking KLM to ...

re: Going on a pretty amazing trip to BVIs-Update Page 2 - Furbs311
Is the Falcon owned or chartered? If your friend owns it, have him give me a call when he wants to upgrade from a French POS with three baby engines :lol: Just kidding.. looks like a heck of a trip!...

re: Russian tourist Visa question - Furbs311
I'm headed to Moscow tomorrow for work, which will be the 5th time since last July. I did the multi-year through g3visas.com. It's a bit pricey but they handled every aspect and it was seemless. I had an invite letter from a work contact, but G3 can write your letter if needed. ...

re: Questions about TSA Pre-Check - Furbs311
Somewhat off topic, but I've found Mobile Passport to be even faster than Global Entry (if the airport has it). Answer the questions on the app when you land, generate the QR code, and walk right through. No kiosks. ETA: and its free ...

Moscow - Furbs311
Headed back to Moscow next week for work for what will be the 5th time since last July. I typically have a day to myself and feel like I've done all the touristy stuff (basically Red Square and surrounding, subway stations, etc). Anyone have any other suggestions?...

re: Why do commercial airliners throttle back at 10 to 12 thousand feet? - Furbs311
Correct -- 250 kts below 10k feet. Also the typical hand off from departure/local tower to center (controllers for large portions of airspace). Lots of departure clearances will only clear to 10k and tell the pilot to contact center at that point. Thus the speed riduction. FWIW, most pilots don't li...
