Where to Meet Flight Chops at Sun n’ Fun 2018 | #SNF18

Who’s going to “Sun n Fun”?  

For any who don’t yet know:

One of the biggest air shows in the country, and our biggest fundraiser for the education programs of the Aerospace Center for Excellence! See modern jets, classic warbirds, homebuilt aircraft, plus hundreds of vendors, workshops, forums and more! Check out all the details at www.flysnf.org

Booth Appearance / Meet n’ Greet

The main scheduled thing that I am doing this year is a booth meet up at ForeFlight

DATE: SATURDAY 4/14

TIME: 12-NOON

LOCATION: ForeFlight Hangar C-092

Anyone I meet gets an official Flight Chops sticker, and if you’re a Patreon supporter at any level, please let me know and I’ll give you a Flight Suit Patch too! 

(Note: The patches normally reserved for the $5+ supporters, but I’m happy to hand one to you as it saves me the shipping 🙂 ) 

Why only 1 Meet n’ Greet, you ask?

Part of the reason I’m being more low-key this year is because I am bringing my 8 year-old daughter Evelyn. 

She’ll be hanging with her buddy Elena (my fave California CFI Jason Miller’s daughter who’s also Evy’s age). 

The last time we had these young ladies together, we nearly broke the internet with a super cute episode where we surprised them with a flight to Disneyland in a DA42.

This year we have some pretty inspiring production plans as well. 

The girls will be meeting Julie Clark before she flies her routine!

It should be fun to see their reaction when the see an unassuming woman whom they might relate to as a sort of grandma figure, take to the skies for a mind-blowing low level aerobatic display. 

I think is super important to get young people inspired about aviation, and to also make it clear to young girls that they are welcome here despite this niche being currently approx. 95% male-dominated. 

I hope to see you there  

Drop me a message below if you’re going!

Or, ping me on Twitter or Instagram while at the event!

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.
