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.

New Aviation Event - The Pilot Companion Course, by Houston Pinch Hitters, Conroe, TX - Saturday, Apr 4, 2015
The objective of this course is to introduce the non-flying member of the family to flying an airplane. We discuss the possibility of the pilot becoming incapacitated while in flight and the need for the non-pilot to take control of the airplane. When the non-pilot is well-versed in the operation of the aircraft, it enhances safety as well as increases the enjoyment of flight. Some of the topics we cover include: safety, basics of aerodynamics, aircraft instruments and parts, basic navigation and chart reading, checklists, radio usage and communications, GPS usage, traffic patterns and landing, and emergency procedures. This Pinch Hitter is a ground school course however, you may want to take some flight lessons to learn how to land the airplane should you need to in an emergency. This is optional and at additional cost, but we will assist in finding an instructor and place to fly. See our website for what attendees said about the last course at West Houston Airport, August, 2014. Then register, and we'll see you there!
