Flying Vintage Military Jets – SURPRISE for Air Force veteran! T-33 Flight VLOG

It was very REWARDING to give a little back to some one who’s given so much!

Full circle Patreon supporter support 🙂

or something like that…  

Anyway – it was super rewarding to fly with Paul, one of the early Patreon supporters who has helped with creating other cool content for the channel such as the 737 sim adventure and the first video we did with a home builder.   

I intend to do this sort of thing more often and fly with supporters when ever I can – most of the coolest content we have done has some how involved the community directly, and you guys are the best part of the community.  

And don’t forget you have access to nearly 3 dozen uncut videos, and each month we are picking a contest winner from the list of supporters – no action needed on your part for that “patreon exclusive prize”! 



iCloth Avionics gets the first shout out in this description – PLEASE check them out! the product is really awesome – I use it to clean everything from iPads and avionics screens, but also trust it to clean my delicate gear such as camera lenses and sunglasses!  

iCloth Avionics really came through in a pinch when they footed the bill to pay for the jet fuel that made this experience possible.  HUGE thanks!!!
(We have a deal code available from them as a thank you when you subscribe to our mailing list!)

iCloth Avionics rocks on Amazon!

Waterloo Warbirds gives the public the chance to take a flight in the T-Bird, Vampire, Viper and soon a MiG-15 as well.

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!

Flight Chops Disclaimer

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.
