An additional note from Jim about TFRs:

One important fact to make known on TFR’s is NEVER TAKE A REPETITIVE TFR FOR GRANTED.  In other words just because the POTUS TFR is the same every two weeks when he arrives in Palm Beach for the weekend, one had better read the details just in case something changes.  AOPA does a great job of mapping a TFR to their members location and sends out emails with a description of the TFR.  I’m not sure what the distance is before an email is sent however I receive a message from AOPA for all the POTUS and VIP TFR’s in Florida.

The main reason we went IFR instead of VFR: ICAO VFR flight plans must include in the transmitted line 18 “other information” section: DVFR/estimated United States ADIZ penetration at time (UTC) and estimated point of penetration (latitude/longitude or fix-radial-distance).

I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
