Salut Antoine!

As a side note - when I was 17, I spent a year there as an exchange student in Neuchatel attending the local gymnase - not to far away from you, relatively, from my USA home.... - I still speak French but I don't spell French at all any more, speaking is useful here as I live ~30 mi from Quebec in Northern NY. (Actually, I hardly spell in English too).

Welcome!

Cheers,
Erik

Salut and pue-t'etre quelque fois j'retournerais et puis nous puex faire un avion en vol?

...okay, no laughing! I told you I can't spell any more, as if I ever could.

Hello and perhaps sometime I will be back and we can go on a flight!

I was in Geneva for a conference just a couple of years ago - I am an academic - I also got a nice tour of CERN. Very impressive.

FYI, Antoine: Erik does not belong to the group of co-signers of the Geneva convention of 1949 nor was he allowed to put his hands on the particle accelerator although he successfully accelerates his DA40-CS to over 0.0000002574002934612 speed of light. :D (Erik, please correct me if I am wrong with any of my assumptions)

You are mostly correct Kai. You are only incorrect in that I do not have a DA40-CS. I have a 2003 DA40-Star (before the star).

Plus I could critique you for artificial precision since our airspeed indicators are not that accurate. Only the first few significant digits are relevant in this discussion, if even.

Don't forget the extra mass, and time changes due to the Lorentz contraction as explained properly by a nice German fellow named Albert.

Actually, during my tour of CERN, the tour guide- himself a physicist, described the cancellation of that oversized Texas accelerator as a bout of the Americans feeling poor. That was a perfect description in my opinion. I am not a physicist btw. I am a mathematician. But I feel the same way.

If I personally had been given the pen, then I would have signed 1949.

La prochaine fois que tu viens à Genève nous irons voler dans les Alpes et dire bonjour au Mont-Blanc. FL 140 mais encore bien en dessous du sommet!

Bien sur et merci!!!! Absolutment, Je ferais quelque jour extra en vacance pour un invite a voler come ca!

You mean also hiking Mon-Blanc? I have hiked up a "14'er" near Brekenridge, Colorado when I lived in Colorado. Hiker's called them 14'ers instead of FL14.
