Not sure what the rolleyes are about.
You brought up minimum hours and that isn't what I was discussing. Being over minimums doesn't mean you are ok on training. Let's ask SakhirM4 .
Well, what other subcategory box would a flyover check?

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has gone on a clemency blitz, commuting the 14-year prison sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich....

Blagojevich became the brunt of jokes for foul-mouthed rants on wiretaps released after his Dec. 9, 2008, arrest while still governor. On the most notorious recording, he gushes about profiting by naming someone to the seat Obama vacated to become president: "I've got this thing and it's f------ golden. And I'm just not giving it up for f------ nothing."

When Trump publicly broached the idea in May 2018 of intervening to free Blagojevich, he downplayed the former governor's crimes. He said Blagojevich was convicted for "being stupid, saying things that every other politician, you know, that many other politicians say." He said Blagojevich's sentence was too harsh.
Just another example of Trump's deep seated and lifelong crusade to fight corruption. Amiright?

Trump offering a pardon to Julian Assange if he helped cover up the Russian hack of the DNC. Big miss I'd say.

Of course that's what they call them.

That doesn't mean it's not a bullshit justification and it doesn't mean those pilots need that "training".

Perhaps we should clarify the baloney posted above with the original Washington Post article from nearly 3 years ago:

"WASHINGTON—A U.S. congressman contacted the White House this week trying to broker a deal that would end WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s U.S. legal troubles in exchange for what he described as evidence that Russia wasn’t the source of hacked emails published by the antisecrecy website during the 2016 presidential campaign."

So apparently, this slimy congressman was trying to get Trump to go along with this but was unable to gain access to the white house.

Nearly all things have names. Those are named/called training flights. You even asked what category they would fall under. "Training Flight" is that category. I'm sorry you don't understand this but I won't waste further time on the topic.

Nice link. I think you meant the WSJ, not the post.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/go...nge-2017-09-16

Rohrabacher.....another stand up freedom caucus guy.

The difference between now and then was John Kelley. I would bet a dozen nickels Trump would back that offer now.

And there it is! Grisham is so classy!

https://thehill.com/policy/national-...nge-for-saying

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham on Wednesday denied the account.

The President barely knows Dana Rohrabacher other than he’s an ex-congressman. He’s never spoken to him on this subject or almost any subject. It is is a complete fabrication and a total lie. This is probably another never ending hoax and total lie from the DNC,” Grisham said in a statement.

Fired for doing his job. Only in the trump White House!

https://apnews.com/b06aff1aef1542f8db6c7803a8250ce3

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has ousted the Pentagon's top policy official who had certified last year that Ukraine had made enough anti-corruption progress to justify the Trump administration's release of congressionally authorized aid to Kyiv in its conflict against Russian-backed separatists.
