My first passenger in the T6 / Harvard had a 30 year old headset on - he could have used the one we’re giving away :). Just a couple days left to win that A20 headset!

1st flight with a passenger in the Harvard / T6! (And my 65th landing as PIC in that beast!) A pretty awesome way to log my final flight of 2018. How was your year of flying?

An airplane that can go upside down AND serve as an IFR / cross country platform has me excited! (No one airplane is perfect or can do all missions, but the RV-14 comes close) new episode is with in hours of going live!

It was beyond an honour to fly with Julie Clark in her T-34 today. I had filmed with her at Sun n Fun and shot a scene with her meeting my daughter before flying the air show with my cameras on board (I couldn’t fly with her during airshow season because the back seat was removed) - I can’t wait to cut all this material together into a great episode to tell Julie’s story!

One of the most amazing training experiences I have ever had! STOL flying the Carbon Cub FX-3 with TacAero! Multi part series in post production now! (And the raw/uncut version for Patreon supporters is live! (Linked in current story, or just search “Flight Chops” on the Patreon site.

Tomorrow’s episode combines a currency flight in the T6 / Harvard, with an event featuring “Fifi” the B-29... and I find an issue with the plane during the flight... lots packed into that one and I am looking for help with the title! (See today’s story for more info and a tease of the video)

My job doesn’t suck. It is rewarding to share aviation stories from all over the place. I try to cover the entire spectrum from learning to fly lovely vintage planes to the latest and greatest GA hotness. In this case, the brand new Mooney Ovation Ultra.

Flying the T6 never gets old. I had a great morning banging out 10 solo landings today and most of them didn’t suck :) It’s an honour to share the process of learning to fly these aircraft! (Although for today’s flight there were no cameras - stay tuned for a big IFR adventure - that I will be filming - next week)

It was beyond awesome to be a part of the team with @sandersaeronautics at the @renoairraces - we published some great “almost daily vlogs” during the week, and have more great content coming! Reposted shot from @edseguin

Heading to the #RenoAirRaces to learn about that crazy world - will be working tightly with Elliot Seguin and the Sanders Sea Fury team! Who's gonna be there? Watch for a meet up schedule soon - likely aiming for Saturday the 15th mid afternoon.
