Default Funny of the Day

How many of you guys have stopped laying your headset on the wing? I have slowly learned after leaving the headset on the wing and closing the canopy on the cord multiple times that I should just keep the headset inside the plane!

So, at least in the aviation world, it would seem 'cutting the cord' is not necessarily a good cost savings move.

Somewhere along the way Vans added headset brackets just in front of the air vents.
They work very well.

Interestingly in that picture, Pete has those brackets on his plane - he just hasn't discovered them yet - lot to absorb on day one.

I've definitely shut the canopy on the headset cord with headset on the wing. So, I adjusted to moving the headset to the floor just fore of the air vent.

....aaaaannnd then I strap in nice and snug and can't lean over to reach the dang headset; so, I must unstrap, get headset, put on, then strap.

One day I'll get it right!

And then realize you just strapped in for a second time, with the straps OVER the headset cord?? Third time is a charm!

What really matters is if you totally screw up and take off with them on the wing. Ha Ha.
AND wonder why the ANR part of your headset isn't working and thinking the batteries are dead.
He actually didn't loose the head set. No names given to protect the perp.
Seen it but haven't done it myself.

I've placed my iPad right there before as I was getting things squared away. It's a good thing I live on a grass taxiway. The iPad was sitting there without a scratch when I returned!

i don't put the iPad on the wing anymore...
