You know, I have this comment said to me a lot… “You are so lucky to have this job!” I love it, but did you know the harder I work, the luckier I get.
Yes, I guess I am lucky, because I get to fly on most days of the year. If I am not training a new pilot to fly, or already licenced pilots to hone their skill set, I get to fly one of our three aircraft on a local flight with my wife on board, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It has been my life, and I have to say I love it.
Flight from Santa Paula Airport to Magic Mountain and back.

Enjoy the flight around the rocky hills in the middle of Arizona desert. Sorry, the clips have a little vibration. It comes from engine of the trike. I’m working on minimizing it by modifying the engine mount and other various parts of my trike.
Is it a bird, is a plane…. Yes its a Kitfox Super Sport 7, and what a nice looking aircraft it is. Ross has flown his new Kitfox Super Sports 7 over from Mt Beauty twice now and the aircraft is a stunner. Ross tells me it flies like a home sick angle, well maybe not his works but I think it does. The paint work is just right for its shape. You can see Rob’s new aircraft at Mt Beauty fly-in on the 5th of December.
The wind started to drop out after Friday’s 30kt winds on the ground, and Saturday was a much better day. Nick and Russell had been flying most of the week and had now completed their Passenger and Nav endorsements. The weekend was now open for Lawrie and Ian to have a bit of fun. Lawrie was up in his new Thunderbird 2 Tanarg, and what flights he had. Ian was also flying his XT-912 Arrow around the local area. Branko arrived on Saturday. He has only just returned from France and Slovensko, where he had spent time with Jozinko. They were nearly caught up in the Terror bombings. Branko was able to get some quality time in the air as well.
This movie is from the footage captured at 4th Idaho/Montana Summer Trike Fly-in. 13 pilots, their families and friends with 11 trikes came together at Boundary County Airport near Bonners Ferry, Idaho. It will be held at Chelan, WA in the next summer.
