Transitioning from tricycle ultralight to a big Tail Dragger with constant speed prop

This is the video that inspired Daniel to reach out to me while he was working on his tail wheel conversion – it is still one of my all-time favourite episodes:


Super Cub – Finding Zen – Grass Strip – Tail Wheel Flying – Short Field Landing practice

We did a great number of traveling productions last year, but most of them were shot during our epic trip to British Columbia, Canada. This was in large part thanks to Ryan from the BC General Aviation Association.   If you fly or are planning to fly in BC please visit:

They have found a way to energize and bring the local aviation community together.

Here are the episodes that are available so far from that trip, and I will update as the new ones are published:

Helicopter Landing: Edge of a Cliff – day in the life of Bradley Friesen – Mountain Flying


Hard-Earned Wisdom: Float Flying a Legendary Bush Plane – DHC-2 Beaver


ATC Communication tips from a Controller / Pilot – Vancouver City Tour

Gravel Bar Landing – Cessna 172, 180, Maule M7, BearHawk – Off Airport Flight VLOG


Several of the tracks in this episode come from Dan’s other band “Martone”

I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
