Flight Chops after One Year – Thank you! – Immersive Flying videos upgrading for year two!

Experiential, point of view flying videos that put you in the pilot’s seat are going to the next level!
After just one year, I am humbled and appreciative of the reaction the community has had to this project; there is some great stuff coming for year 2 and beyond!

I don’t usually make “blog” style videos directly addressing the viewer like this, but I felt it was worth doing so in this case.

Please follow this link to a tease revealing the “rebranding”!
(This video will be live for a limited time – It’s on VIMEO because it is temporary, and we are using a copyright music track… )


There will be an updated cut to this tease later in the month here on YouTube when I switch the whole channel over to the new branding…
And I will definitely make a longer detailed version (or maybe a multi part series) with my typical style with voice overs and lots of nerdy detail that puts you right on board with us learning the nuances of flying this amazing plane!
But I had to share this short tease for now!
Please share the heck out of it and spread the word about the new “Flight Chops” website, as that will ultimately be the portal for updates and so on.
YouTube will always be the main “Flight Chops” channel of course, so please share and subscribe!

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.
