Thermic Landing Zone!

Although this happened at Andy Jackson Airpark, it applies equally to Sylmar. If the air is going up it may be safer to ride with it until it stops lifting off before attempting to land. Of course, pattern traffic can become an issue when more than one glider is coming in. Just an FYI https://youtu....

Nothing extraordinary here. Just a typical rowdy switch day but still lots of fun!

Elsinore to Capistrano Beach - 2012-05-08

Greg's stunning angst motivated me to provide at least a few minutes of escape from stir. This was 8 years ago but how often do we get to fly OTB from Elsinore to the beach? Full flight with poor quality live sound and hollering to my ramp crew due to shitty launch conditions. Winds above 10K were 5...

Re: Merry Condensation All My Friends!

Really nice, with perfect music. Thanks. You're welcome. I shared the original edit with OP while I was compiling footage so he got to enjoy an early version. As you can imagine, we were pretty silly and juvenile about the concept which was par for the course. His dad, Chris has seen this version o...

Merry Condensation All My Friends!

https://youtu.be/8zVI26Vm_uY I originally began a secret anthology of my personal FAR 103.23 breaches in concert with Orian Price less than a year before he tragically died. I have since refined the edit and sound track dozens of times trying to get it just right and remove the non-aesthetic element...

Watch out in the Clouds....
Please don't even be in the clouds locally given the amount of commercial and other powered air traffic.

On another note, I see you signed your marvelous watercolor "WINGNUTZ".
I am impressed. If you have an online gallery I would enjoy seeing more.
Cheers,

Cloud Suck Thursday - 2019.11.21

Hour-long flight yesterday to 500' below cloud base just over 4900'MSL. The lighting and scenery were very pleasing but the cold and turbulence weren't nearly as enjoyable. I kept the edit short and to the point. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/orvDVALVcqY http://photos.imageevent.com/aero92/misc/vlcsnap-20...

An Exquisite Autumn Soaring Flight - 2019.11.12

Tuesday's 3:10hr 42-mile scenic flight from Marshall Peak 15 miles East to Keller Peak then 20 miles West to Sugarpine Mountain then out over the flats along the 215 freeway and back to Andy Jackson Airpark followed by a harmless landing splat due to pilot fatigue. The weather doesn't give us many o...
