Flying the Rans S7 with Jessie!

Flying the Rans S7 with Jessie!

Saturday was a spectacular flying day, all the better because my wonderful daughter Jessie joined me. Flying the S7, we formed up with a few other pilots heading to breakfast at Putnam County Airport then on to Metropolitan Airport for their Vietnam Veterans appreciation day. Jessie had her trusty phone along and created a happy little video in the process. Never flown an S7? Check out the view fr... Read More »

“PLANES” the new movie by Walt Disney Studios

Have you heard about the new animated aviation film “PLANES” in the works at Walt Disney Studios? I’ve seen the trailer and this is going to be one fabulous movie!

Looks like Madeline Norcross is getting awfully close to soloing

Looks like Madeline Norcross is getting awfully close to soloing

Young ladies that passionately want to fly inspire the heck out of me! Something tells me 15 year old Mandeline Norcross is going to have that effect on a lot of people! One thing I happen to know about Madeline is, she LOVES Wacos. Her dad sent me this note and the link to a short video I have to share with you…. “As a proud dad, I couldn’t help sending you a QUICK VIDEO of  Mad... Read More »

Scariest Video Ever

Scariest Video Ever

Well, I really don’t think this is the ‘Scariest Video Ever’ but it is a truly freaky way to be employed. You won’t catch me climbing any of those 500′, or 600′, or 1000′ plus towers that I go way out of my way to avoid when I’m flying. Do not mess with these bad boys. They may have been ‘few and far between’ in the past but they are EVER... Read More »

Where oh Where am I gonna mount that thing?!!

Where oh Where am I gonna mount that thing?!!

Taildragger cockpits vary tremendously in size and panel configuration. Before GPSs I don’t remember panel space ever being a problem; the only “space” issue was figuring out how to get your body in and out of some of them. Once buckled in, if you could reach the rudder pedals you were good to go. Then along came the iPad and suddenly we’re all looking around trying to figu... Read More »
