We've always been flying in 3 dimensions anyway. I guess the term popped up because they had to call it something.

3D is slowly morphing into 3DXA, and that's morphing into what you have to do to become a complete pilot. Eventually all distinction will disappear and we will just be "flying."

Because "post stall flight" sounds too technical

All the old fogies at the clubs were just circle flying all day every day, then the hooligans came along and added a whole new dimension!

To which we all wish you would leave to somewhere else on the field other than the main runway......

I occasionly still hear their comments .....
'real planes dont fly like that'
'I thought you had lost control'

'are you going to be long' 1 minute into my 3minute flight .

Let me reinteraint; You are more than welcome at our club, given that you will not occupy the space at the main runway centerline. That would seem to me common courtesy, but 99.95% of you 3D guys have no concept of that premise...




THAT is where the conflict comes from........
