    Comes with the territory but I never break the 300 ft FAR minimum. ;) Landed on a culdesac in the middle of a subdivision the other night.

    Fast Eddie is quite the general aviation ambassador. Took me up on my first flight two years ago!

    Yep! Took me up a year or so ago, too.

    Eddie, for an encore, pop him into the sidecar and show him the Dragon. :)
