For the Pilot in you

Post by kens » Thu Feb 21, 2013 4:53 pm

I saw this on youtube, and had to share with the aviation folks on the board:

another one:

I got pretty good in a tail-dragger, but, I never got the hang of rotate V1 @ 5kts. !! LOL :lol:

You see WHY the Super Cub is the Plane of choice for AK's guides etc.
I should have recognized that air port but nope! Been gone too long.

I'm negotiating the purchase of my first airplane right now--a TEAM Airbike, light sport, single place. I hope it works out.

I guess I need to get some tail wheel instruction. :wink:
