Flying at Sunset
Just thought som of you might like this. I was flying home today from Nashville, TN, and shot a quick video of the sunset at 5,500 ft. I turn the camera around to film myself giving a thumbs up at the controls.

That's awesome!! I have about 70 hours in cessna 172sp. I love aviation and I don't think there is a better feeling than being in PIC in flight! Cool Video Smile

RE: Flying at Sunset
I have spent countless hours flying - albeit as passenger, which has been a worse and worse experience over the years...to the point that I have put a complete stop to it for the last couple if years. Flying as passenger used to be a comfortable, pleasurable experience until airplane seats became smaller and smaller to the point where my knees are now permanently stuck in place against the seat in front of me. Pure agony if you take an 11 hour flight... The only way to bear it anymore is to move up to business and first class. Plus the airports - it's like being herded around like cows now with all the security stuff.

The views I have seen, however, are just magnificent. I wish I had taken pictures. Both nature and the cities are a magnificent thing to behold from above. I would never get tired of that part.

Some of the most pleasurable rides have been in a friend's Cessna. Small planes are the only fun way to fly anymore. Too bad their range is not far enough for my purposes....

Congrats on getting your private! Start building time and experience. Getting the PPL is the beginning of something truly unique and exciting for you. You just accomplished something that 99.8% of the people in this world have not.

I'm flying a Piper PA-28-160 Warrior in the video. Nice, solid bird to fly. I post my flying stuff on YouTube on the channel LordsOfLanding. I'll also be posting some videos of aerobatic flying in a Bellanca Decahtalon soon.

RE: Flying at Sunset
Where are you flying out of bugsmasher? I have a lot of friends who fly acro here in north tx. It is definitley a long term goal of mine. I want to eventually fly a Pitts - I just think bi-planes are so romantic!! I actually just went to Italy in August of last year to help my friend on the judges line( I did nothing but record scores and run them from judges to the panel) for the World Aerobatic Competiton. It was amazing-- all of the best pilots from all over the world all in one place.. Thumbsup

RE: Flying at Sunset
Gorgeous...and the flight looked alright too! Tongue

I used to have a friend that was a Qantas pilot (don't see him anymore) and he used to take us up all the time, in different small aircraft, which was spectacular! I think I used to annoy him with questions like; 'can you explain the aerodynamics of flying?' Big Grin
He once snuck us in to the flight simulator - now that was amazing.
