Kentmorr Airpark - Crab Cake HQ

Beth & I flew down to Kentmorr Airpark for lunch today.  Kentmorr is located just South of Bay Bridge Airport and across the bay from Annapolis.  Their is a marina (I call it a Yacht Club cuz it sounds mo better) and restaurant a quarter mile down from the runway that truly serves some of the best crab cakes we've ever eaten.  I do suggest going there.  You can drive there too although it appears to be an island as there is a bridge that leads to it.  Here is the menu:  

Hope you enjoy the video; it has a new perspective this flight.  Plus, I lost a dollar on a bet.

Cherry Ridge Breakfast Buffet

Beth and I flew up to Cherry Ridge (N30) for their famous breakfast buffet. Very Delicious Indeed! We had a great flight, both VFR and an enroute IFR pickup to get through the weather. Super smooth ride both ways and awesome sites!
Cherry Ridge offers a very scenic view from inside their country restaurant, along with opportunities for helicopter rides and biplanes rides.  Its a really nice country airport.  Don't fly up there in the winter though without checking first; I overflew it last year and it was 12 inches under snow!  Yikes

Blairstown For Breakfast

Beth and I flew to Blairstown for Breakfast on Sunday Morning.  The cafe there is DELISH!  I was also using an NFlight GoPro Prop Filter and audio patch cable.  Worked Great!

Blairstown is a little sport airport with lots of Glider activity!  LOTS OF GLIDER activity.  If you watch to have an enjoyable time, fly in for breakfast or lunch to watch them.  Listen close on the radio as there will be gliders everywhere as quickly as the thermals start.    The food here, as I said, is outstanding!

Massey Field Fly-In, June 2015

We got together for an impromptu camp-in / fly-in and had a great time!  Massey Field is always a great time!
It's located just down the road in Maryland and has an old DC3 and P51 on site.  Beautiful flying area and tons of fun.  Great folks here and not only are they great pilots, but great chefs too.

Delish Food!

Airborne Over Van Sant

Had a nice get together at Van Sant tonight, May 9, 2015. We had 7-8 wings in the air and a nice sized audience on the ground. Plus, we brought our spouses and coolers and had a fun time afterwards too. 

Really looking forward to the next outing with this gang.  Great People!

By Dawns Early Light

First time back PPG flying since I injured my arm. All went amazingly smooth and I enjoyed an hour long silky smooth flight Sunday Morning. John came out and flew with me and we met Emiel from New York who was kiting and soon to be flying with us.

If ya'll have ever thought about PPG flying, you should try it.  It's amazingly fun and safe!

Pine Tree Drone War - Drone Lost

Still learning to fly my Drone. Less crashes and I'm getting better with spot videos. I'll be using this when paragliding next month.  The camera views that this thing puts out is awesome!  I'm trying to get smooth with the transition from horizontal flight to vertical flight whilst adjusting the camera angle to stay on the same subject.  So far, I either crash into the subject (me), go flying past the subject and nearly hitting the house, or rocketing to a climb and missing everything - including the shot!

OtisDrone - First Flight

After 4 months of my DJI Phantom 2 Drone sitting in the closet, I finally decided to take it ouit for a test spin.  I'll be using it for my paragliding videos in the Spring so I figured I should learn how to fly it.

Ernest almost got a hold of it but just missed biting the skids.  Thank goodness he missed because there are 4 carbon fiber blades spinning ridiculously fast. I have a lot to learn flying these drones but it's really cool and provides great camera footage.

Cloud Hopping On The Delaware

Had an amazing flight this morning.  Lots of low level fog over the Delaware River but absolutely clear as a bell above it.  The ride was really smooth too so after a short solo flight, I went back and joined up with John and we flew out over the river and then back over the Pennsylvania countryside.  Even though I thought of Sweet Home Alabama, I was still riding above PA.  I hope you enjoy this flights video.

Van Sant Air Stroll

Went flying tonight at Van Sant and found the air to be absolutely glass smooth.  Not even a ripple!  Beth went with me to explore the countryside walking up and down the hills.  Had a crowd of folks show up and hang out for a bit, including the local Police Department. Maybe they'll all take lessons!   Hope you enjoy the view.
