This is a flight that Casey and I took to KOBE (Okeechobee) for some breakfast. We flew the 152 and also tried out my new camera mount which performed quite well. Casey also gives us a few tips for traffic pattern ops and situational awareness while flying cross country.

Student Pilot Journal Podcast #36

A very SHAKY instrument flying lesson!

The camera I borrowed was horrible! Never again. Anyway, sorry for the bad quality but something is better than nothing I always say. Stay focused in the panel and you will probably get through it without going into seizures. Stay tuned after the podcast for a good tip from yours truly about the usefulness of flight sims!

Student Pilot Journal Podcast #35

This episode was intended to be a "minicast" interim episode but I think it is fine as an official post.  I thought it would be a good idea to talk some more about flight following and provide some in flight examples.  Enjoy!

Student Pilot Journal Podcast #33

A flight to an Aircraft Salvage Yard.....

There is something really fascinating about a salvage yard for aircraft.  It must be morbid curiosity for me as I look at the junked fuselages and think about their previous flights and owners.  Where are they? I imagine the planes coming off of the assembly line at one point all shiny and new.....What was their final flight? We had a good time this day.  On approach we were busily looking for the grass strip of zero two foxtrot alpha. It is not easy to spot when everything else is green around it. With my iPad in hand I was ready to help my friend Roy navigate the short 56nm trip.  No stick time for me....and I was perfectly content with technology at my side.

I recently took a trip with a friend to ferry an R44 Heli to the midwestern US. This podcast is a brief overview of the trip. The next podcast will cover in more detail the flight itself including the pre-flight and overview of the basic controls of a helicopter.
