Howdy Lindsey,

To dang hot to fly around here (Texas) in the day time, so I've been getting alot of night experience in the 162.  I love the Garmin 300 avionics!

Hello Lindsey
Here is some international flavor to your page, (Australia).
Oshkosh was as usual "great".
Regards
Keith Page.

Thanks Lindsey.  I'd love to be there but am out doing some currency flying in the Eclipse 500 this week.  I live nearby, so maybe next time!

Thanks, Lindsey! The Alaska seaplane adventure was truly awesome! I won't be heading to Oshkosh, but hope to make it there some day. Ping me if you ever make it out here to San Diego.

Hi, Lindsey.  I don't think I'll be able to make it to Oshkosh this year, but I would love to be able to go.  Maybe next year.

 

It is great to see more females in the world of aviation!  How soon until you get your license?  I am a fairly new pilot myself.  Got my ticket about a year and a half ago in fixed wing, about 3 months later was certified in high performance/complex.   Don't know yet whether I'll study for my IFR ticket, but I am considering it.

 

Hope you have a blast at Oshkosh!

 

Ann

Hi Lindsey,

No I won't make Oshkosh, but I would love too.  I am up to my eyebrows with work.

I will invite all of the gals  in aviation that I know. I am sure they will enjoy it here as much as I do. 

Have a BLAST in Oshkosh

Hi Lindsey! Unfortunately, I won't make it to Oshkosh this year....but hopefully next year!! We are taking about getting together a group of women and renting a house or something for next year.

Are you going to Oshkosh? Have you been in the past?

GOOD AFTERNOON LINDSEY,
AS FAR AS I KNOW THERE ARE NO FLIGHT SCHOOLS IN CARTAGENA. AS A MATTER OF FACT PRIVATE AVIATION IS RARE.

Re Helicopters over Fixed Wing, I prefer Helicopters for fun flying and the ability in some countries to land at your destination, i.e. Hotel, Restaurant or Golf Course. If the journey is about seeing what you are flying over, low and slow is the way to go and a Helicopter is great for that.

If however the journey is about getting somewhere and the destination is the purpose, i.e. visiting a City in Europe, then Fixed wing is faster and cheaper, and with an instrument rating you stand a better chance of getting there especially the further it is.

Horses for courses really, but Helicopters are more fun and you are more connected with the machine. I'm not really into aerobatics, but I'm sure people who do that feel a connection with the machine the same as I do with Helicopters. Microlighting is similar in some ways to helicopter flying i.e. low and slow and you can get into many small farm strips, and there is a great community spirit, and it can also be fairly cheap.

I'm headed up to Minot, North Dakota  to help out later in the fall.  They need help with the flooding.  Puts Oshkosh on the financial back burner for now.

Hi Lindsey,

I started on Microlights (Ultralights) with a Thruster TST. That was too open and cold for my wife Mary so when I got my licence I bought a RANS S6 which we flew for a couple of years, touring all over UK. I then got my Group A Aeroplane Licence and then Group B Twin rating and bought a 50% share in a Piper Twin Comanche. I then did my Night and Instrument Rating and we flew further afield to the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, Guernsey and Jersey. I then did my Helicopter Rating on the Robinson R22, then did the Enstrom 280 rating and then the R44. I then bought another aeroplane a Gruman AA1 which we flew all over and to France and Belgium. I then sold that and am flying Helicopters again. I only fly for pleasure, and my wife enjoys coming along with me.

There are photos of most of the aircraft I have flown on my website www.eddieevans.co.uk

Best Regards

Eddie

Dear Lindsey,

Hello, and thanks for your message.  To answer your question, I did the bulk of my flying when I was in the Navy, stationed first at NAS Memphis (Millington, TN - now all in Pensacola, FL), then at NAS North Island in San Diego.   Next, I then did my sky-diving in San Diego (Borderland Airport on the border of CA. and Mexico) and my hand gliding in Cantimar, Mexico.  We are tryig to finalize a flight training program at the Central Florida Aerospace Academy (CFAA) where I presently teach, and perhaps I will fly more then.  How about you Lindsey?  May I ask what your background is, what you are presently doing, and what your goals are?

Sincerely,

 

George Bartuska

Lindsay, my desire to learn to fly comes from when I was a boy and my father was in the mission field in Africa. We used to have a flying doctor service that would come into town every second tuesday of the month in a C-185, and the pilot was a world war ll veteran who knew aerobatics. He would make a low pass over the mission station, then do a barrel roll, and then everyone in the neighborhood would rush to the remote dirt strip nearby. To make a long story short, every once in a while, my sister and I got to go for a ride in the back seat of that C-185!

I may have access to an aircraft in the near future.

Hi Lindsey,  I've been flying now for a little over 3 years and it was difficult to find students due to the economy.  I started doing some heavy networking and got involved with Whirly Girls, seminars and expos.  I was submitting resumes everywhere I could.  A fellow friend and pilot told me about the job with Panhandle Helicopter and I contacted him ASAP and got the job!!  Now I get to fly tours along the Gulf Coast, and I love every minute of it :)  Finally I'm getting paid to fly.... instead of paying to fly.  Hope we stay in touch.  Fly Safe!!
