Adrenalin Filled Aerobatics in an Extra 330LX
Adrenalin Filled Aerobatics in an Extra 330LX
For those of you that were watching the Aerobatics Lessons that Adam gave me in my RV-7A, you heard us talking about getting me the experience trying my hand in his Extra 330. Well, between what felt like the perpetually low ceilings of winter and our schedules never quite matching on the clear days, it took us two full months since the last lesson to get back in the air again. But it was sure worth the wait!

Pilot Destination Update - Cloud 9 Cafe, Prestonsburg, KY
"Highly recommended even if you drive… it’s that good! I stopped in on a return flight from Morristown KMOR to Lapeer D95 during a visit to the Smokey Mountains last fall, a 475 mile trip so I needed a fuel/food stop along the way. Big Sandy KSJS was my choice and what a great place. The owner of the FBO greeted me on the Unicom, pumped my fuel and made me feel a welcome guest. His daughter owns Cloud 9 restaurant and did an amazing job of providing a home cooked roast beef dinner that I would have easily flown 100 plus miles for had it been in my home state. This place is a must stop if traveling through and a great destination if you are based anywhere near, no doubt by far the best home cooked food from any airport ever!" - Submitted by Victor Adamko.
