Patrick calls and says..."Run outside, quick!"

So I did...and he was flying overhead...

I ran back in and grabbed a camera. The D50 had a battery and a card.

Once over the house...

Cool! Glad to see Patrick (and you) having some fun. :smile:
Yeah, I have a hard time getting too excited (I have a deathly fear of flying in small aircraft), but he enjoys it so I try.

was this a solo fight?
wow
that is awesome

how very cool

Nope, this wasn't a solo, but it was a rather special flight. At the last minute, his instructor volunteered to let him have a go at his own personal Cub. To say that Patrick is excited right now would be an understatement! :wink: He has had a few solo flights, which were exciting events for him, as well.

Friends, I had a great evening tonight. Solo'd in the Cessna 172 into a controlled airport for my 3 takeoffs and landings at a towered airport, so I can now check that off the list.

Afterwards when i got back to home base, Bob my CFII asked if I wanted to get a ride in the Cub. How could I resist!

1947 Piper J3 cub, real flying!!!! What great fun!

Oh, and it wasn't buzzing really. Turns around a point at 1,500AGL. Buzzing sounds unsafe, I'm not about unsafe flying.

Thanks,

Connie...he has buzzed us once or twice before, but this was the first time I had a chance to grab the camera.

So glad you got out and had some fun Patrick. Thanks Leigh for sharing the images.
Thanks Gordon. It's fun to share times like these.

You didn't buzz the tower there "GhostRider" did you?


(looks like a ton of fun..great job!)
This was hardly a buzz that would spill my coffee! LOL:biggrin:
Now that is very cool!!! :biggrin: I'll bet the boys got a HUGE kick out of this. :smile:
Yep, Ryan and Ben were excited. They can hardly wait until Patrick can take THEM up...

Fun fun fun!
:biggrin:
That's what Patrick keeps saying!

what a neat way to spend time enjoying!
It's good to see Patrick having fun since he is so serious when he's working. I'm glad he has the chance to do this since it's been a dream all his life.
