Blasted by an F35, Checked out my Check Pilot, and flew some weird stuff!
In this episode of Flight Chops, we go behind the scenes of the non-stop action that was OshKosh Airventure 2019. See the event from Steve’s POV, the packed events and presentation schedule, the weird aircraft he flew, and bonus – join Dave (Steve’s Warbird Check Out pilot buddy) as he flies a Cub for the first time ever!

These patches were inspired by an idea from Jared, a pilot that I flew with in one of the first “big productions” where we left town with a small crew and really made a great 2 part series flying the Extra 300. That pretty much set the tone for the way much of the project has gone. The content is still all about growing and improving as a pilot, but we fit in some pretty awesome flying adventures too! I think there are a little over 3 thousand of these out there now! They are a perk for Patreon supporters, but I’ve been coerced into giving some out at events like #airventure2019 Which is where I am heading tomorrow :).
For more info on Steph Stricklen –Aspiring pilot, host, emcee, Emmy winning TV news anchor, CES tech journo, aviation writer, Rose City Comic Con moderator, Half-Aussie — search any of the social platforms for her by that name. Here is what she wrote for me to add here:
Blue check verified. Especially trying to grow my IG. I’m worth following because I think of my fans as my friends and will give out kickass impossible-to-get experiences. Hence you being by the jets because you’re a good dude.
What makes my content unique is it’s live and in real time, so you as a viewer can ask performers questions or interact with me, them, and even suggest to me what you want to see. Here are some examples:
It’s LIVE TIME. We’re on the ramp as the VFA 125 Rough Raiders Home of the F35 bring in a Lockheed Martin F35C headed to VMFA-314 VMFA 314 Black Knights. We’re talking with Lt. Tyler “SHAFT” Shaver as the jet makes its way to the static display. And then, in what is one of the most special moments at #OSH19, the Hero Flight arrives. Between the emotions, patriotism, and unparalelled access; we hope you will enjoy this live. Pass along your questions and we’ll ask as many as possible live and in real time.

IT’S LIVE TIME! We’re live with Major Paul “LOCO” Lopez with the F-22 Raptor Demo Team based out of Joint Base Langley-Eustis. We have something few people ever get to see and we're about to bring you a front row seat. It’s a little windy but we have exclusive access to the secure side of the airport to get up close and personal with the F22, the U.S. Air Force F-35A Lightning II Demonstration Team and the A-10C Thunderbolt II Demonstration Team as all three jets launch. Pass along your questions and we’ll ask as many as possible live and in real time. Be sure to stick around for the F22 as LOCO taxies right past us; it's one of the coolest things we've seen.
