    I was browsing through aircraft clubs and found a few old pictures from our club planes on various roads throughout Clemson. No backstory, I am going to ask my CFI later on, but thought they were cool and wanted to share.

    How about the old Indy? Doesn't get much more ridiculous than that considering the size of the airport

    ISP-N03-ISP. Ceilings were worse than expected. Ended up being beautiful up in Cortland though. I had to get a pop up half way there due to clouds and terrain. On the way back, I just decided to file. First icing of the season too. TKS fluid took care of it!

    That makes sense. I kept looking at it thinking "what an odd paint job".

    Here are some photos from my night commercial XC in Detroit.

    First one is looking over Lake St. Clair. Second is flying the VFR corridor over the Detroit river between the US and Canada with the Ambassador Bridge and the RenCen clearly visible. The last shot is taken just after a touch and go at Detroit Metro when my instructor says "I have the controls. Look left!"

    That one was an adhesive mount. If the plane goes sub 160mph-170mph I use a suction cup, in excess of that I go for adhesive mounts.

    I kinda meant what was the adhesive mount attached to.

    Not to be “that guy”, but the powers that be probably aren’t too keen on attaching things to flight surfaces.

    And they’ve had chats with people from YT videos and photos of same...

    Fair warning...

    That was my thought, but I, too did not want to be "that guy" either.

    We had a Cirrus owner actually attach a GoPro to his rudder horn (!).

    In neither this nor that case did anything bad happen. But its not hard to imagine that in this case disrupting airflow to one side of the elevator and not the other could have unforeseen dynamic effects.

    Seen quite a bit of that, too. I guess the choice to put it on a fixed surface vs a balanced one, is *slightly* better, but really I don’t want cameras on airfoils... and at least that guy had a ‘chute! LOL.

    It’s becoming a “normalization of deviance” sort of thing, seeing cameras slapped pretty much anywhere on aircraft.

    We put them in the same position on Extras, I know Patty and Kirby have a few of them in similar places and none of them have come off, nor have they had anyone speak with them. Personally on my mid-wing I'll be apprehensive to really do anything too crazy with an adhesive mount, but I know a lot of pilots have actively tried to get the GoPro to come off and none of them had luck (pulling 12Gs repeatedly). I think only one guy lost a GoPro session on his XtremeAir and it was solely due to the fact he used a cheap adhesive mount opposed to the original GoPro ones with better double sided tape.

    Yeah, the adhesive works great. It’s not the “coming off” that I’ve heard folks have been talked to about, it’s the sticking them on an airfoil that gets certain FSDOs unhappy. They clarified that changing the aerodynamics of the aircraft in any way is taboo, as is needing tools to attach or detach them (requires A&P) nationally in a letter a while back, too... but I can’t find it at the moment.

    Patty and Kirby’s aircraft are usually Exhibition certified aren’t they, and all that goes with that? And unknown what waivers they fly under outside of shows, but definitely a waiver process in place for shows and low level work... they might have the cameras attached via A&P sign off or waiver allowed, or both... but I doubt they just slapped them on without dotting the I, and crossing the T, if you know what I mean.

    But if they did, like I said, “normalization of deviance” seems to be happening with cameras. Which is probably not a good thing...

    With the Thomas fire at 85 percent containment and the Santa Paula airport now outside of the TFR, we flew up there a couple of days ago for the first time...I know some POA'ers are based on the field. Neat place! I've never seen so many Decathlons and Citabrias in one location, no doubt making full use of the aerobatic area to the east. A flight of three Cubs was getting ready to depart as we landed, with what looked like grinning grandkids as passengers.

    SoCal Approach was buzzing with activity...couldn't get a word in edgewise so we dispensed with flight following and used two pair of eyeballs and ADS-B In to dodge all the Southwest 737s flying into LAX and Burbank as we flew across the basin.

    Blue skies at Santa Paula, but on the way back, just 35 miles away, an onshore breeze had pushed the Thomas fire's smoke into the basin. A light layer, but with backlighting it looks pretty solid! L.A. skyline is just off the wing tip. The pic was taken over Altadena (near JPL, just over the hill from Burbank) looking south.

    The flight school there (CP Aviation) teaches Emergency Maneuver Training and acro in those Citabrias and Decathlons. Great training if you ever get a chance to do it. I did it there with Rich Stowall. Best instruction I've ever had.

    A trip to N. Lake Tahoe a couple of weeks ago. Parked the plane at Auburn and drove the rest of the way, so that we didn't get stuck with a storm. 1st pic is sunset somewhere close to Bakersfield on way up. Logged some night time on the flight home. 2nd pic is looking East over about El Monte. That's the moon! Beautiful flight!

    Thanks for the tip. I did some spin training in a Citabria as part of getting my PPL. If I ever want to get more instruction, I think Santa Paula's the place.
