With Daylight Savings Time arriving soon (though not soon enough for some) I thought a link to the origins of DST would be cool.

I'm looking forward to flying EVERY DAY after work
My spouse might have other ideas but right now that's MY plan...

Had Daylight saving for over 20 years in Aus.

Great idea.
6AM to 8PM flying in daylight.
Gives you 3 to 4 hrs flying after work and that is the biggest bonus, you can go flying after evening meal time.

Cheers

Maxx,
I have the exact same gameplan this year as well. Get off work, rush home, change clothes, throw the helis in the truck, and do Mach 5 to the local field. Flip, flop, tumble for a couple of hours and then come home knowing you had a good day!!! Then, repeat the next day!

I burned ALOT of fuel last year flying after work in the evenings. This way the wife enjoy having me around the house more on the weekends. Works good for us.

Thanks for the link!

Daylight Saving just saved just finished here in New Zealand this weekend so I guess that means the end to out summer is close

Guess I can't complain we have had a great summer for flying and we fly all year round anyway .....

It is always great when the time changes back and we can get more flying time in.

Dave,

I live in Missouri but travel through Indiana on business quite often. Never have figured out why you guys don't go for the DST thing. Very odd.

I can see where that would play havoc with delivery/schedules and such.

Sincerely,
Matt

Yea, the non-DST States can really mess with your mind...
Last summer old man decided to take a Greyhound bus from his home in Dayton OH the a small town an hour away in Indiana. He went to the bus terminal and went up to the ticket window and asked the young man standing there how much a ticket to Indiana would be. After finding the price acceptible he inquired: "when does the bus leave?"
The young ticket agent replied: "Nine-thirty. The old man asked "OK, when will it get there?". The youth answered "Nine-thirty...you want a ticket? The old fellow, thinking the agent was an idiot, declined to buy a ticket from him. The old guy just stood back and waited for the youth to be relieved by someone else. Sure enough, the kid went on break and was replaced by an older gent at the ticket window. Seeing his chance, the oldster approched the window and inqured about the departure time. The agent replied Nine-thirty. Now said the old man; exactly what time will it arrive at it's destination?. The agent answered Nine-thirty...you wanna buy a ticket? The old man replied; No, I don't want a ticket anymore...but do you mind if I stand here and watch that damn bus take off???
