The Last Two Weeks at Tailwheel Town

It was the first flight since the incident with the PA12.  Perhaps there was no better combination of flight instruction and an airplane to fly that Flight Review in than Tony Zindel and the Outlaw 120.

 Tony had written one of the most supportive messages I've ever received, and Outlaw's owners, Walt Lasecki and Sam Monte, made the Cessna 120 available to me.  I just hope that both Tony and Outlaw realize how much I appreciate their support. Tony flew his Review very nicely and the little 120 is a great little hot rod!  For those who have sent in comments, I hope you'll forgive me.... I've been a little preoccupied with preparing the new Cessna 140 and dealing with the NTSB's demands and haven't spent much time approving comments.  I will, however.... 

Josh's check out is continuing and I have to say that there are very few pilots as talented as this CFI from Bend.

 Saturday, the third of May, was a busy day for all of us connected with Outlaw Aviation as we had a busy Young Eagles day scheduled.  Sam, Walt, Kristin and I are all happy to provide our pilot services to young eagles as it is just one way that the interest in aviation of our younger pals are affected!
 This Week's New Article

"Flying Shoes".  Perhaps you've noticed that some pilots have some very strong opinions about what they do or don't wear on their feet when flying.  I certainly do and you'll read all about it in this week's selected article, "Flying Shoes".

A Selected Older Article

#66 To Spin or not to Spin.  This is an oft-argued subject and I guess we'll run it through the ringer again.  Maybe I'll make a decision one of these days!
