  1. Unless you are in the army, you will probably never land off airport at night until you fly EMS. You could take students to a confined area you are familiar with and practice but I would only do it under goggles. Your school may not allow you to do this, however. If EMS is the goal, I would set my sights on the GOM and work your way into an IFR position. I would highly encourage you to fly EMS IFR. You will have a big advantage when applying for EMS jobs already having IFR time and twin time. Flying EMS IFR takes a lot of the stress out of the equation and I feel it is much safer. Much m
  2. Where are you at with your training or experience? Most of the pilots I work with came from offshore or the military.
  3. The OP is not looking for an average. It's a simple question: has anyone seen rental prices increase. You tend to go off on weird and irrelevant tangents every time you decide to chime in. How's about if you don't know the answer to a question, spare us the word salad of nonsense and don't answer it?
  4. I don't think he's looking for a mathematical cohort. I think he wants to know if prices are increasing. If insurance is indeed going up, you can bet the rates will too.
  5. Funny how the story evolved from you having had your license revoked several times for speeding and was "going very fast" to "the cop got in big trouble for arresting me for breaking the law". What did the cop do wrong? You left out the best part!
  6. Huh. One of those glorified meter maids threw your ass in jail, too.
  7. Yeah, well one of those "meter maids" took him to jail and he's looking at some consequences but thanks for your input.
  8. As the OP said, with a decent lawyer, it probably can be reduced but "go away"? Highly doubtful. I did have a friend that got a careless driving in Louisiana many years ago. He was just starting his career with an offshore job and didn't want something like that on his record. He went to a lawyer in one of the southern parishes and was told it would cost $2,000. He asked what the $2,000 would do for him. Lawyer told him it would magically disappear. Sure enough, it did.
  9. I wouldn't really worry about it too much. It's still just a speeding ticket. Now anything alcohol related (convicted or not), you are in a serious bind. Somebody along the line may ask you why you got arrested for a speeding ticket, though.
  10. I've never heard of anybody getting arrested for speeding. You must have really been hauling ass: endangering yourself and others. Maybe a time out is not such a bad idea.
  11. 1. Yes 2. Not particularly 3. Don’t know but I don't think that's how it works, either 4. Yes
  12. Try Sheppard Air. What most people I know have been using. https://www.sheppardair.com/atp.htm
  13. Go through the PTS with your instructor to identify any weak spots. Good luck!
