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.

“Fifi” is visiting @ch2a_windsor and I am heading to Windsor to film with the crew and fly the Harvard (that’s it in formation with the Stearman and Chipmunk in this awesome shot by Ryan Orshinsky) if you can make it out this weekend, find me for a free flight suit patch and sticker!

Since it’s #NationalAviationDay here’s a screen grab from my proudest aviation moment - 1st solo in the T6 / Harvard! What was your flying highlight of the past year?

Just completed my first helicopter lesson - I think being a drummer helped me figure out hovering with all 3 controls - episode coming soon!
