Passed up a chance for the 200 kt club in the RV-9A. 47 knots at 9,000, but surface winds gusting to 34. No, thanks...

This morning, I decided to take the RV out and grab some breakfast. I ended up flying over to Cable (KCCB) and had a very good breakfast (I'd recommend it, if you haven't been). Cable was a very busy airport this morning. After breakfast, I flew back and put the airplane in the hangar. Rain is coming tonight through Monday, so that's going to do it for my RV weekend..

Default CRQ

We flew down to CRQ for breakfast (no pics, sorry) Had a great breakfast and met a fairly new PP who flew down with her date, who happened to be a controller at John Wayne (KSNA). Good food, good conversation then back to KLGB to change the oil...

Went for a "leap day" flight on 2/29, to exercise the -10 and top off with cheap gas before work.

Flew over the airport where I first soloed and took off for my checkride just 2 weeks short of 25 years ago:

Yesterday my airplane as well as an RV6a, and 2 RV8's did a missing man formation flight for a funeral for a pilot. My airplane was lead, I was navigating communicating while my buddy was doing the lead flying work.
