Lindsay Petre: More Ink

Author:  Lindsay Petre In my original post last winter I said I intended to begin aerobatic training in the spring. At my airport a wonderful instructor by the name of Aaron Ham offers a 3, 5, or 10-hour course in a Pitts special s2c. However when I went for the first hour I was struck by the realization that I need this in my life! So I now have about 24 hours and I’m working on a sequence ... Read More »

Sneha Harish: Road landing at Wilikale, Congo

Sneha Harish: Road landing at Wilikale, Congo

This is a remarkable account from Sneha Harish, her first landing on a road at Wilikale, Congo. Walikale is a town in the North Kivu Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo.  I landed on a road for the first time ever! And no, it wasn’t an emergency. A road doubles up as a runway at Walikale. I work for Air Serv Limited. Their HQ (Air Serv International) is in Warrenton, Virginia and th... Read More »

Where oh where are the airplanes?

Where oh where are the airplanes?

I’m happy. I’m WAY south of my home in Indiana, delivered to the warm and very sunny state of Florida by the Boydster. We came in the Mooney 231 for the Mooney Summit, climbing out 3.5 short and comfortable hours after departure. The difference between our Mooney flight and a Rans S7 or a Super Cub flight compared to ANY Mooney flight, is huge. I actually fell asleep on the way down in... Read More »
