Too much airspace, terrain, and tall ass(you can TOATS say ass here) obstructions to cruise around at 2000 feet here. It was fun finishing my flight training in the Louisville/Southern Indiana area though since you could pretty much do that anywhere. Just look out for the one big radio tower and you can chase a guy on an ATV around his farm. Or so I've heard.
Meanwhile in SF, I get a call from the FSDO for being on an assigned 2000 foot altitude over downtown because it scared people. Lol.
He thinks it’s July... right off the bat. July 6th. LOL.
His “all important checklist” that he always cuts out the video, apparently doesn’t have “set navigation” anywhere on it... since he did it on the runway while saying “we shouldn’t do this on the runway”...
I’m always happy when this thread comes back to life, it means I have some new entertainment to go watch. Hahaha.
Maybe a dozen years ago, when I was living in Colorado, I let my instrument currency lapse. Wouldn't you know it? During that period, I had a flight which would have been the easiest IFR flight imaginable but I ended up ducking under and around scattered-to-broken clouds the whole trip. It was very uncomfortable and I committed to never letting my currency lapse again.
Watching this video, I was taken back to that day. For the life of me, I can't imagine an instrument-rated pilot choosing to (try to) remain VFR in a situation like that as opposed to either filing IFR to begin with or picking up a clearance well before entering the terminal area. I don't see any advantage. Of course, having seen Jerry fly instruments, maybe he does realize how bad he is at it.
Seriously, every single video I watch of his he drifts hopelessly left of centerline. Sometimes I think the only thing saving him from going into the grass or taking out a runway light is the fact he rotates before he actually goes offroading.
