Why Drink 'n Drive

Smoke 'n Fly ?

"Yes Boss, I'll have the plane back by five !"

It's A Bird  (No!) It's a plane  (No!),  It's Zohar Super Shit.  (To the Rescue .... Nooooo ! )

I've been in the air for six years now, much to the inconvenience of the air, the birds, the clouds.... and God, I guess !

I spent five years as an office worker in a Flying School in Israel.

I'm not the worst pilot in the world. OK, so one instructor faked a heart-attack to avoid teaching me, and another forged a business trip Nigeria, but I have improved ! ( a little )

You're getting in or not !

To date, Not a single crash, although I did once miss the runway in Eilat. The control tower replied ( in hebrew ) :

"Nice Landing man, next time try the runway!"

You're cleared to land, just aim for the ass !

"Zohar Rashit ! Will You please stop mooning the landers, and get your ass of the runway ! ? ! ?"

NO, photo-shop did not do that to the background !

With my dear friend fellow pilot Erez Raviv with a Checkian Zlin, somewhere on the Golan Heights.

"And then what happened.....????"

Another day at work :
"Hey, our job is to run the office, not fly safe!"

Most pictures on the page are from this last year.

Israel has got to be the worst place in the world to fly a private plane. The restricted military skies, the interrigating traffic control and senceless beurocracy enables our authorities to make flying as misserable as possible.

My superior officer in the Air Force crashed a Cesna plane with Israeli superstar Ofra Haza on board. He is the man who let me hold the stick every time I hitch-hiked a ride to the base with him, paving the way for me to become a pilot myself. After every landing I sang (to myself):
 
 "Alive Alive Alive, yes I'm still Alive"
(One of her songs, runner-up of Eurovision 1983)

THE GOLDEN RULE :
You push the stick, the houses become bigger !
You pull the stick, the houses become smaller !
You keep on pulling, they become bigger again !

You push the stick and what exactly happen ?....... "don't Save a prayer for me now....

Lost Above Sea,
 
In March 2002 I flew to a soccer game in Cyprus, without a GPS or proper serviceable Navigation Aids. When reporting above a certain check-point on the Meditteranean (by calculations), the regional control centre replied (with heavy sarcasim in his voice):
 
"No You're Not ! We read you 22 miles off coarse" (the flight itself is only 154 miles!)

"See Sir, I re-collected all parts off the runway"

BeechCraft Bonanza : A cadilac of the air.
( think the boss is gonna let me take it away for the weekend ? )

Zowie, aren't you supposed to be flying ????

My brother Chuck & I on our way to another soccer match in Cyprus ( he's the single idiot in the world who loves to fly with me!). Oct 2002.
