Flying recommendations

One wonders

Sometime you see an aircraft flying oddly and wonder. Allow me to recommend an ADS-B app, this is the iOS app OpenADSB:

This one was tracking CA-56. I wonder why?

Anyway, an ADS-B app shows all sorts of interesting stuff. Some time ago it showed FLIR surveilling San Diego:

Anyway, go grab yourself an app, there are others too, and hit the ‘show trails’ button to see where an aircraft has been. Sometimes its quite interesting.


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.
