Landing BLIND at 100 MPH! – zero forward vis – Pitts S2B – Flight Training VLOG (+PHOTOS)

Learning a whole new Flying skill set on this one!

Huge thanks to Harv’s Air for making this happen! They are one of the very few flight schools in North America that offer basic and advanced aerobatic training to all levels of pilots!  Check them out!

There are already several episodes from his series available! Including one flying there in the TBM 850! To keep up with where we are at in the series, look up the “Pitts S2B” and “TBM850” tags here on the site.

Special thanks to Gill, who killed it as my cinematographer in Winnipeg!

I’m a Private Pilot, doing my best to stay current and learn. I fly for fun and might just be the least cocky pilot on the internet! My self analysis videos can seem self deprecating at times, but I am trying to learn from the small mistakes to avoid making a big one; I’m happy to share and find it rewarding to help other pilots or aspiring aviators in any way that I can. How does the saying go? “Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards”. And in aviation, not all tests are survivable.

My virtual “ride-along” flying videos are aimed and sharing my experiences and giving back to the aviation community which has been so helpful to me. I shoot multi-camera angles, get detailed real time instrument panel shots, and have radio intercom audio. I respect people’s time, so I put a fair bit of work into editing to keep the videos concise and engaging; I add animations and further graphics and voice overs where needed to add context and explanations.

My hope is to continue to grow and evolve the “Flight Chops” project with input and support from the aviation community!

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.
