Got a package in the mail from the EAA today telling me I am a registered flight leader for the young eagles program. They want me to take 10 kids on their first flights over the next year. I get to give each kid a log book, certificate of completion and a voucher for free ground training. For those of you that don’t know about the young eagles program, it gives kids and teenagers the opportunity to take a free flight in a general aviation aircraft. During my flights, I allow the kids to take the controls (with me) and get a feel for flying an airplane. Its really a great experience. If you know anybody that is interested in aviation and is between the ages of 8-17, contact the EAA (experimental aircraft association) and ask about the young eagles program. If you are in the bay area, drop me a line and I will get you set in the right direction. 

I just really love this guy’s blog

Just landed. Beautiful night to fly. I wanted to head up over the city, but the marine layer moved in to spoil that plan. I will upload pics from the GoPro when I get home. Hope you are all having a great weekend!

On final into KRHV in San Jose CA- Taken with Gopro Hero2 

Going to start changing things up a bit. I am now going to fly every flight with the Gopro camera on. My goal is to give you guys both video and stills with different angles. Also, if any of you ever have questions about anything, feel free to ask. I am always willing to answer your questions.
