Flying the Friendly Low Country

Little Tybee
Not much to type here, really… The video speaks for itself.

Early in my flight training, I’d often grab one of the video cameras we have here at work and take it to the flight school. I’d give it to a passenger or my instructor or stick it up on the dash in the window of the Cessna 172. I found a tape I’d shot late last year and threw together some of the better shots of the hour long flight. It’s certainly nothing amazing, but it does show you a little of how pretty flying around Savannah and the Coastal Islands of the low country can be — especially at twilight. Yeah, yeah… for those pro aviators out there, the landing leaves a bit to be desired, but, “Hey!,” it was only a little over a month into my training. And, as the infamous aviation saying goes:

Any landing that you can walk away from is a good landing.

Needless to say, after eight more months, my recent landings are straight down the runway center-line and a lot more coordinated.

You can click on the above image or link to check out the video… I’ll see what other video(s) I can dig out of the archives over the next few months and post more when time permits. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this short segment.

    “Folks we are experiencing a little turbulence, sorry for the trouble. Thank-you for flying Howling Wolf Airlines. We look to serve all of your flying needs in the near future.” The landing was kick ass. I dosed off and for a moment thought I was on the flight. The video does the deal justice. Keep posting them, very good stuff.
