Flying for the fun of it
Flying is always fun, but I don’t get to go flying just for the fun of it very often. Most of the time, flying for me is work. Frankly I can’t afford to do a lot of flying just for fun, but I hope to change that one day :)
The other day I did stumble across a video of me flying around just for the fun of it so I thought I’d share it here. My friend (and former student) Karl allowed me to have a little fun flying his Cessna 182 around Florida a while back. Here we are landing at Gainesville, FL (KGNV).
I managed to land on the numbers… we all get lucky sometimes ;)
We were obviously just horsing around, I think Karl shot the video on his iPhone. It’s not great quality, but I enjoy the beautiful view of the cumulus clouds building over Florida on a late summer day.
Me and this particular Cessna 182 go way back. I ferried the airplane from New Jersey to Florida when Karl bought it. The airplane had been a hangar queen for 20 years or so.
