It’s nice to see a little terrain for once. I am also thankful for severe VFR out west for 15 beautiful hours of KODIAK flying these last few days. #severeVFR #funflying #kodiak100 #questkodiak #pilotlife #lovemyjob #CFI #teach #learn #instructor #part91hasmorefun #sedona #arizona #crosscountry #beautiful #wingview
Flying out here for a few days has been pretty rad. Today I head back to one of the coldest days of the year for Wichita ( windchills to negative double digits 😂) and the most beautiful girl in the world, @hannahwilkinz . See you soon! #california #westcoast #pt6 #kodiak100 #questkodiak #mountains #flying #bluesky #turbine #funflying #pilotlife #teaching #newer #safer #versatile #avgeek
We went up to Big Bear at 6752 ft for a change of scenery from the desert just below, people were skiing up here! Thanks Caleb @aviator.ridge for the tip to try this place out. I’ll miss the views up here for sure! #mountains #bigbear #california #CA #outthere #optoutside #pilot #pt6 #mountainflying #lake #wingview #bestjob #funflying #aviation #avgeek #airplanes #questkodiak #kodiak100 #STOL

I must take a moment to acknowledge a very real search going on for a missing friend. @paul_cracker_graham was flying a plane (PA-23, twin) from Northern California to Salt Lake City Thursday night when it went missing somewhere south of Elko, Nevada in the Ruby mountains. I just learned of it this morning and haven’t stopped thinking about it since. As you can see, he is a fun comical guy and this could have happened to me or any of us pilots. So far no trace has been found since the loss of contact was reported. I am mindful of the great uncertainty and dread his family is going through for the last several days, it’s beyond comprehension, and has me feeling sick. There are still very few details available. Pray for Paul to be found safe and well and for his family and friends to have strength. #hope
I’m definitely diversifying my wing view portfolio on this trip. I’ve never been to this part of the US before and seeing it from a plane is prime! #desert #mountains #socal #almostmexico #kodiak #questkodiak #pt6 #turboprop #adventure #flying #pilot #avgeek #wingview #bestjob #funflying #bluesky
A lunch and fuel stop along the way to Palm Springs. We left TUL with 1700 lbs of fuel and 4 passengers with their bags for the weekend. My favorite thing to see is pax resting warm and comfortable in the back, then i know the job is being done well. #pilot #questkodiak #smooth #safe #new #versatile #corporatepilot #avgeek #flying #funflying #part91hasmorefun #SUVofthesky #turbine #pt6 #outwest #familyhauler

A quick flyby of NASA’s 15,000 foot runway for landing the Space shuttle. If stood up vertically, this runway would be taller than my little Skyhawk could climb. Want to try it? Just check on with an Orlando approach frequency on the east side and request a low approach at TTS. I look at it as one of thr largest glider airfields ever built. #C172 #spaceshuttle #N416WR #airplane #lowpass #astronauts #space #flyby #orlandoapproach #runway #jets #rockets #ULA #SpaceX #Boeing #flying #propeller #avgeek #aviation #cessna #skyhawk #NASA #florida #spacecoast
Soloing in a single seat aircraft is a unique experience. My initial solo was in the 2-33, and after a brief talk about the 1-26, I was off! The difference in visibility made me a bit nervous going from high wing to mid wing, but I had a few really fun flights! #SGS126 #SGS233 #soaring #gliders #funflying #summer #grass #bluesky #clouds #glider #sailplane #schweizer #towrope #solo #aircraft #aviation #avgeek

So I guess what I’m getting at is, one of my resolutions in 2018 is to finish Glider add-on to my Commercial and get a CFI-G. Out of necessity! Because my CFI needs renewal by September. Adding gliders to it seems a lot more interesting way to extend than an online course. Looks like I have a deadline! Pictured is Pat from Citrus soaring,who I got to fly with once before I soloed. #cfirenewal #projectwichita #gliders #towplane #bluesky #greengrass #aviation #grassrunway #airstrip #ATV #tailwheel #soaring #sailplane #SGS233 #learn #fly #live #adventure #funflying #aviation #avgeek #airplanes #summer #sun
Another shot from Pierson just for nostalgia, training with Citrus Soaring! This is one of my favorite spots in Florida for flying! Along with my tailwheel endorsement, it also represents my unfinished glider rating. 😂 I soloed the 233 and the 126, but never made it back before getting married and moving to Wichita. #motivation #gliderflying #tailwheel #pipercub #piperj3 #SGS233 #C172XP #bluesky #clouds #grass #grassrunway #funflying #pilot #aviation #greatday #planes #aviation
My first COOL airplane picture ever, of @mbreezyb21 flying the cub way back before I knew to try for a prop disk...at least it isn’t frozen in place! That’s the only tailwheel plane I’ve gotten to fly (with @johnnydegennaro of all people!) and I never finished the training.
