Hey Greg, really enjoy the podcast. Started watching when I lived up in Northern Indiana. I live around KFPR now. So now I can enjoy some of the scenery that I was watching on your videos. Keep the videos coming. Lots of fun. That's what it's all about. R.Kent

A very SHAKY instrument flying lesson!

The camera I borrowed was horrible! Never again. Anyway, sorry for the bad quality but something is better than nothing I always say. Stay focused in the panel and you will probably get through it without going into seizures. Stay tuned after the podcast for a good tip from yours truly about the usefulness of flight sims!

Check Ride Prep

A little late, but here is the footage for the short and soft field takeoffs and landings. I also included another day in here due to the fact that my camera continued to fall throughout the short/soft video. The last half of the podcast documents our return to basic maneuvers such as power on and power off stalls and emergency procedures. As of this journal entry things are progressing as planned. We are having some difficulty scheduling an FAA examiner, though. The DPE that the club primarily uses is having a medical issue that is under review from the FAA. Our other option is an airline pilot from Merritt Island. Unfortunately due to the current Delta/Northwest merger, he has been out of reach...not sure what the deal is with that. -Enjoy

Peter Jensen Instrument Flight Part II

I am digging in my backlog and getting motivated during the holidays to put out a podcast....finally. I must say that it feels good. I always enjoy the publishing part! This is part 2 of SPJ 22 for Peter Jensen's Instrument cross country flight. Peter has since completed his training and is an instrument rated pilot. Although he has had the rating for a while now, I still congratulate him on completing the training. I will continue to dig through my videos to see what else I have to publish while I prepare for the next podcasts.

Flying With Jason:

Man...it's been a long time since I did an episode...so sorry. I have been flying a little, although not near as much as when I was training. I have a few flights on video, but finding the time to edit has been an issue. I finally made myself sit down and get this one out. This is a flight with my good friend Jason. We did not fly anywhere in particular, but Jason was able to get some good pictures and we got enough altitude to get a smooth flight. I will try to be more consistent in the future and put out more episodes. Here are some photos from this podcast flight:

Talk about a flight to Daytona Beach for pre-buy inspection of N2521L.

Just me talking about a flight to KDAB in N2521L.  I also got an interview with an interesting girl from Embry-Riddle while I was there.  She is a part of a team that are building a hybrid glider for the Green Flight Challenge starting in September.  Stay tuned for the end of the episode for the interview.

A flight to an Aircraft Salvage Yard.....

There is something really fascinating about a salvage yard for aircraft.  It must be morbid curiosity for me as I look at the junked fuselages and think about their previous flights and owners.  Where are they? I imagine the planes coming off of the assembly line at one point all shiny and new.....What was their final flight? We had a good time this day.  On approach we were busily looking for the grass strip of zero two foxtrot alpha. It is not easy to spot when everything else is green around it. With my iPad in hand I was ready to help my friend Roy navigate the short 56nm trip.  No stick time for me....and I was perfectly content with technology at my side.

Part 1:

Please welcome fellow club member Peter Jensen to this weeks video podcast. Peter is currently pursuing his instrument rating with Casey Allen as his instructor. This video documents Part 1 of a 250 NM cross country. I enjoyed riding along on this one as I am gearing up for my instrument training as well. For Florida, this is about as much as you get for instrument conditions. Enjoy!

Status Update:

Hello everyone! A quick status update of what is going on. I am getting ready for my trip to marathon key this Friday. I am hoping that the weather does not put it on hold so we are crossing our fingers. This will be good for me since I have not been able to fly much lately. After this trip I can add one more place to go for the wife and fam. I generally like to fly there first so I don't have any surprises when my wife is flying with me. I know some of you may say that is part of the fun....but....yea....not for me. :-)

Hello aviators! This episode is from October 2011. I wanted to give everyone an update on what Casey has been up to lately. His new job has been good for him, but it has meant fewer episodes as we try to get our schedules in sync to record and fly. I hope you enjoy the update and we hope to get back in the air soon.

This is a flight that Casey and I took to KOBE (Okeechobee) for some breakfast. We flew the 152 and also tried out my new camera mount which performed quite well. Casey also gives us a few tips for traffic pattern ops and situational awareness while flying cross country.

Hey All!
Went up for a bit today. It always feel great to get back into it and it also recharges by batteries a little bit and encourages me to at least put out a video update. The podcast is always on my mind but I am lazy with the video lately. Sorry again!!! Thanks for the continued support.
