Flight at KPTK

Postby Tom Pletzke » 09-13-2017 05:32 AM

Hi Everyone,

Had my first real flight experience. My son gave me a fathers day gift of a discovery flight at KPTK. I did much of the work from startup, taxi, takeoff, navigation, landing, and shutdown. It was very cool to feel the air while steering. First thing I learned was you steer with one hand most of the time. It was a blast. Here is a link to the landing: https://youtu.be/AanUn0sATgQ

Congratulations. The bug has bitten. Figured out how to pay for the lessons?
