Commercial License

Working on those commercial maneuvers. Chandelles aren't too hard (did you know "chandelle" means candle in French? Anyone know how that got applied to a commercial aviation maneuver?) Eights on Pylons look manageable; Lazy Eights may need a little work though. Hope our summer weather isn't completely gone as I hope to get a lot more flying in in the next month!

Gotta love the US!

Had a great trip to Europe - lots of good food and great wine, but I really missed flying! Very few people there could even dream of flying as it is terribly inaccessible and expensive. We are blessed in the US with many local airports (every one of which should be protected!) and minimal fees and taxes as well as lower fuel costs (believe it or not). I am happy to be back in the Land of the Free!
