    I hadn't thought of it that way. The CEOs likely spend more that that every day on lunch!
    Had one of those but it broke!

    Re: Explain to me MAAC. Do I need it by law?

    Hey Guys, a few years ago there was a similar conversation on RCC.

    I replied with a colourful response which I believe is still relevant;

    "If you are living in the middle of no where and like to fly all alone – you do not need any organization to ‘Mess up Your Fun!’

    Most of us do not fit into this situation, we cluster together in groups where inevitably there WILL be conflicts and therefore RULES will have to be made to ‘Keep the Peace’, someone has to make the rules… a committee is formed, discussions, compromises and… look out we have a MAAC like organization!

    To make sure that the local TV Station/ Cab Company/Oil Rig’s Radios don’t shoot down your prized Airplane, requires coordination between Industry and the Government – I’m SURE that these folks will listen to YOU and your concerns. So you DO NOT NEED a MAAC like organization!

    Insurance?
    We all have Home Owner’s insurance - that is good enough (ONCE - if you can afford it) – We COULD get together and get a group rate (much cheaper) … but there are rules so that we can all enjoy the benefits … halleluiah we have MAAC again.

    Face it – organizations annoy the Cr@p out of people because they do not always give the INDIVIDUAL EVERYTHING that they want. (Darned RULES Keep messing up MY FUN!) That’s what happens when you are trying to keep 10-15,000 people happy; that are spread from coast to coast… sounds easy to me…

    Organizations exist to give the greatest amount of benefit to the greatest number of people – read compromise, get used to it.


    So on to the folks that HATE Organizations… no problems.

    -Go out and find your own field in the middle of no where, enjoy yourself – but if you have any problems you are on your own.
    -If you crash into a house, car, person – I hope your insurance covers you and you do not loose your home.
    -Please do not come to a MAAC Sponsored event (anywhere in the country) and expect to fly – you will not be allowed to fly with us, because it would invalidate OUR insurance and put our loved ones at risk.

    Yes indeed – you individuals are free to go out there in the middle of no where and have fun ALL BY YOURSELVES. ENJOY! "

    I like how that all sounds......

    Probably one of the better explanations i have heard.

    I know that when I was a kid, my Dad bought MAAC for me and my brother, and we were flying in the back 40 of rural Quebec, pretty much alone, on our own land.
    I mean only once, we had an instructor show up and break a plane on us....
