The weather looks terrific for Monday so I’m going to fly. Anyone else who wants to is welcome to join me. I’m planning to depart Kirkby’s at 1200 with an eye toward flying to Fort Macleod. Or, if someone has a better idea, I’m all ears. In checking the weather, north will be colder. I’m just saying.
From the airport in Macleod, it’s an easy one mile walk into the A&W which will very likely be open. We can get a root beer, or something, there.
Let me know if you’re interested, or just show up.
Hope top see then.
Some of us are leaving Kirkby’s around 1130, or so, to head to Red Deer. Join us if you can. You’d be very welcome!
Pilots from Voyage Across the Sky – A Light Plane Odyssey
In the summer of 2012 two pilots set out to fly their small airplanes – a homebuilt ultralight and a 66 year-old-classic – from Calgary, Alberta to San Francisco, California and back. It was an aerial odyssey that would cover more than 2700 miles and take more than two weeks to complete. Fighting mechanical problems, mountains, deserts and incorrigible wind and weather, Geoff Pritchard and Stu Simpson challenged the sky and temped fate to pull of the adventure of a lifetime.
Take a seat, strap in and join them on a Voyage Across the Sky!
Here are some stills taken from the air-to-air video we shot yesterday of Geoff Pritchard’s 1930 Fleet Model 2 biplane.
Geoff has been a year and a half in trying to get this airplane imported, certified, mechanically sound and himself checked out and signed off to fly it. He finally soloed on Thursday, Oct 24th. Yesterday, Barry Davis and I flew the Cavalier along side Geoff for about 2 hours as Barry captured some incredible video of the Fleet. These shots are taken from that video.
I`m in the process of producing a documentary about Geoff`s journey with the Fleet and I hope to have it done by early next year. I look forward to screening it for you guys.
