Epic Flying Summer 2016! AirVenture News + Awesomeness wrapped in incredibleness

Huge thanks to the Aviation community for being part of “Flight Chops”
Visit https://flightchops.com to win stuff every month!

The things we’re getting up to lately are amazing, and I am proud to be able to share the adventures!
It is all thanks to fellow aviators stepping up and helping make things happen!

I love giving back – we’ve got a monthly contest with thousands of dollars in prizes from the sponsors, and we’re giving away a chopper ride over AirVenture 2016!

If you’re going to Osh, come to the Bose Booth on Wednesday at noon to see who wins that!

(You can also enter Monday, and we’ll contact you on Wed if you won – assuming you’re going to be around to redeem it Wednesday and / or later during AirVenture)

So far the booth appearance schedule is:

ForeFlight – Mon the 25th, and Wed the 27th – 1 PM both days

Bose – Mon the 25th, and Wed the 27th – 12 PM both days

CloudAhoy – Mon the 25th, and Wed the 27th – 11:30 AM both days

And I will try to do Bose and ForeFlight again on Friday,
… but that is TBD due to when the timing of flying “Fifi” happens 🙂

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.
