We had a great time visiting the Mid America Flight Museum in Mt Pleasant, Texas. There are a lot of beautiful Aviation museums across the country that have their own particular mission. Mid America Flight Museum is based in Mt. Pleasant Texas (KOSA). Their museum differentiates itself from many other museums in that the great majority of the airplanes in the museum fly on a regular bases, and that ongoing projects are being restored to fly! Check out there website: http://www.midamericaflightmuseum.org/
This is the first installment of the new My Airplane Series. Listen and watch while Garry Ackerman talks about his new acquisition, the Stinson SR-7. See a full walk-around, instrument panel review and engine start-up. Congratulations to Garry!
On this particular day, we had an extreme crosswind,straight across the runway with winds gusting at 25 mph. I asked my instructor, who has over 5,000 hours of flight time, to take us up for this video. We have and ADS-B setup using ForeFlight Stratus II for displaying traffic.
What fun! A beautiful day, zero wind and 5 GoPros to play with. On this flight, we took off from McKinney National Airport and flew to Mesquite Metro Airport in Texas. We decided to speed things up in the video between the two airports to show off the coolness of the ForeFlight Synthetic Vision, combined with map display.
Join us as visit The Taxiway Cafe at the Lancaster Airport in Lancaster, Texas. We flew out of McKinney National Airport, flying over Mesquite and then direct to Lancaster. The Taxiway Cafe has some of the best food around. Be sure and give them a visit. You won't be sorry!
After several weeks of bad weather, we took the opportunity to go up and try out our new ADS-B Transceiver. We also purchased the Stratus 2 ADS-B Receiver for our iPad. This ADS-B Transceiver also has WiFi for the WingX Pro7 app, which we haven't tried out yet, but it does give the copilot and passengers the option to use either the ForeFlight app or the Wingx app. On this particular day, we had an extreme crosswind,straight across the runway at 17 mph, gusting to 23 mph. I asked my instructor, who has over 5,000 hours of flight time, to take us up for this video.
In this video we visited the Dallas/Fort Worth Wing of the Commemorative Air Force in Lancaster, Texas. We had a special opportunity to watch the members of this Wing as they worked on their WWII Aircraft. At this particular meeting, Adam Smith, Exec. Vice President of Strategic Development for the CAF Headquarters was their special guest, speaking about the CAF Headquarters moving to the Dallas Executive Airport in Dallas, Texas. If you have a chance, this is a great tour of Warbirds and Vintage Aircraft, plus they offer rides for the general public for a nominal fee.
