Happy Birthday, Jim... you are a legend...

You know that every renewal, US, Canadian or SA I refer to that little blue book I bought so many years ago "student and PPL flight tests." Valuable info on airmanship.

And, I often sit back and read the articles Jim Davis Flying Lessons, little gems of info in there, like the one I have used often over the years is keeping a trickle of power on for night landings. Works a treat.
And, working the whiz wheel, especially the wind nav side, provides a terrific situational appreciation and the correct use of sectional maps.

I hope you are still riding and enjoying your Harley.
Straighten up and fly right!

A very happy birthday.

I think a new book with your legendary flying stories would be a great way to celebrate!
