Snow Mobile Noob (360 Video)

Keri, Rob, and I headed out snowmobiling today and it was my first time.  Yep,  a noob.  I managed to stay on the thing 98% of the time, but you can bet I did fall off.  Twice.  The first time, pictured left, was out of self-preservation (I  thought).  I was climbing a cliff and I thought the thing was going to fall back on top of me so I let go and rolled off to the right - with the grace of a moose doing ballet.  I was surprised at how fast these things go. I got mine (actually Amanda's; she let me borrow it without knowing in advance) up to about 65 mph, while Keri and Rob went at least 90.  Every time I started flooring the throttle, I'd hit a bump and spend the next quarter of a mile trying to get my balance back and back on course.  What a blast I had.  Can't wait for the next opportunity.  I've already told Beth that we're getting one, a two-seater.  She's nervous.


Enjoy the vid!  It's a 360 degree video, so you should be able to rotate the screen around for 360 views.  Give it a try!

Germansville Groove

Rob and I went flying up at his place this evening.  What a great flight we had.  The ride was as smooth as I ever remember it being and we shared the sky with Chinook helicopters, ultralights, powered-parachutes, and of course each others PPGs.  We had a ball!

We plan on flying again next Wednesday and hopefully this next flight will be as memorable.

Hope you enjoy the video!

Soar The Shore 2015

 We had an amazing time at Campbell Field for Soar the Shore 2015.  The weather gave us plenty of flying opportunities, along with time to site see, shop, eat, and tell tall tales.  It's always a great time at Campbell Field.  Stop by our Facebook Site (Airborne Distress) and join up (FREE) to get info on our next fly-in / camp-in.  Spring Wing 2016 will occur in May of next year.  Details to follow.   

Scroll down to watch the video from this week.  Hope you enjoy it and see you soon.

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: http://www.kentmorr.com/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!
