    It felt really awkward to me. Fun, but not a fan of the flying characteristics

    Yeah, people always say "flies like a Cub" but TBH, Cubs fly like crap. They're still fun, but the fact remains... They're relatively light and sporty in the pitch axis, and total dogs in roll. IMO it's way more fun to fly something like a Husky (B or C model) that has well-harmonized fingertip control than to wrestle a Cub around. But, I sure wouldn't turn it down if someone offered it to me to fly. :)

    Was surprised how heavy the controls are for such a tiny plane. And my right foot hated it the whole time with how cramped it was. The whole experience certainly woke up my feet.

    Nope, up the road at McGhee Tyson. KMNV is the first waypoint on a typical south x country. :)

    Made a quick trip to Flagstaff this morning, overflying Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. Well, the northbound trip was quick thanks to the wind aloft. Return trip, not so much. :(

    The good news:

    The bad news:

    Screen Shot 2019-03-10 at 8.30.47 PM.png

    If you've ever wondered what 157 knots ground speed looks like in a 172, here it is. No, this is not one of those speeded-up videos. :p



    Pretty scenery, though ...

    A few nice ones I got on a flight a few weeks ago between KHWV-KHFD. Had to do some flying under the clouds but man did it make for beautiful lighting!

    Awesome spring day flying around NW Tennessee. Plus the interior got a good cleaning.

    Was on way back from Jamaica and saw this outside the window. Shadow of the Jet and chemtrail on clouds below.

    Hope the rest of you sit by the window on a flight in the heavy iron and just look outside the whole time. I’m like 6 yo flying for the first time.. every time.

    You couldn't have ordered up a nicer day to fly in SWMO/NWAR than what we have today. Upper 50s and zero wind...zero bumps.

    Flew to Berryville, AR (4M1) for their monthly breakfast. Not surprisingly, they had their largest turnout ever.

    Günter topped 20 hours today. A couple of photos...

    He doesn't have the "happy face" yet that Buddy had when flying, but he's content to just sleep in the back seat:

    download_20190316_123722.jpg

    And the post-flight pose that's becoming a tradition. We'll, except this will be the last. He'll dent the cowl if he gets any heavier!

    download_20190316_124944.jpg

    For comparison...a reminder of his size on Christmas day...he's just a wee bit bigger...

    SoCAl RV Flyer beat me to it. This "Superbloom" of flowers has created traffic havoc on the 15 fwy. and nearby side streets. I would have never guessed that flowers could draw so much attention. There are now paid parking lots and shuttles just for people to go sit in the flowers. Only in SoCal, lol. There are orange, yellow, purple and white flowers in the mix. The lake in the first photo is a stocked fishing lake that has been shut down for the past few years due to the drought. It is now just about over-flowing.

    I'll throw part 2 of the trip down up tomorrow morning and then I'm officially caught up on videos. Hoping to get the call any day now to go back and pick her up! Going to be a busy few weeks coming up. :)

    I picked up another camera for better views of the panel. I'll put the new autopilot through the wringer and make sure to film it all. Really excited with all the great things I'm hearing about it. :)

    Unfortunately, we had no time. We did mention (can't remember if I edited it out or not) that we have a buddy in Lindsay as we flew over. We ended up getting delayed a day due to crappy winter weather and were in a time crunch to get her down there and then back on an airliner the same day. Looking forward to seeing you down in Kentucky...cheap non-fancy beer is on me!

    Awesome! I'm ready to see how it works and couples with the G5's.

    And in OKC!! Stop in at Sundance (KHSD) sometime. Cheapest fuel in the city, and some dang nice folks! ;-)

    See ya in the Bluegrass State.
