Going flying

I won a charity auction for a biplane ride, but the pilot was super super generous and offered to also let me come along for a lunch run in the Cirrus SR22. Got some stick time in both and had a truly spectacular day. Thank you Tom!

Modern plane and glass avionics. So nice to fly.

The to the 1941 Stearman. Also beautiful.

And very very basic. Not even a VSI and the gas gauge is not connected. 😉

Four times around the pattern, Tom let me some of the flying and oh my it was visceral. Hang your head out and hear the wind through the strakes!

Days don’t get much better.

Of course they have a Cub.
