MOST PIVOTAL MOMENT
My First Solo (Again) – a.k.a. “Holy Sh*t, I’m alone in this thing.”
This experience is what put me firmly on the path of turning my dream of flying vintage warbirds into reality.
Getting Slapped in the Face by Bradley Friesen
No explanation required…
Or is there?
Being Hoist-Rescued by the US Coast Guard
No contest – the most epic thing I’ve ever done.
Pulling +6 and -3 G’s — a.k.a. “I need to be in better shape for this.”
This was intense and I quickly learned that I need to work out more often than never in order to be an aerobatic pilot!
Learning to understand air currents and their similarities to water – a.k.a. “The Scariest Thing We’re Going to Do Today”
Flying this close to ridges is very, very intimidating.
Getting to fly three models of CubCrafters in one day 🙂
Doing aerobatics in the L-39
COMING SOON – Full episode not yet published but you can get a taste of it here in the 2017 teaser:
WHY I FLY
This one is all about chasing my childhood dreams. Soloing the DHC-1 Chipmunk was a very emotional experience, and brings me one step closer to flying a Spitfire like my Grampa did.
