Default Quick flight to KLIC

I am looking for an airport East of KFLY to put a piece of equipment at. So I flew up to KLIC to see if they had wireless (which I need). Unfortunately, it does not look like they do.

Anyway, nice day for a flight. Here are the wind turbines which now fill most of the distance between Colorado Springs and Limon.

It was a good day for a flight.

Blue skies everyone.

Default Finally back in the air!

After making our way through the down time waiting for an XP-400 replacement, getting her flying again, then getting stopped in our tracks by C-19 we can finally join this string. The -14 is back in the air and for Motherís Day we flew from Camas Grove (1W1) to Astoria, down the coast to Newport and back with fuel stops in Scappoose. For lunch in Newport we shared scallops and halibut and a crab sandwich sitting at the beach. Gorgeous day today once the am Wx cleared. Food was tasty and the courtesy car was a retired Police Interceptor which still had some juice in her. A nice day!

I hosted a Boy Scout Aviation merit badge to 10 Scouts and each one got a ride in my RV-6A. 9 of these had never ridden in an aircraft other than a commercial airliner.

Default SoCal

Flew to Catalina for the weekend (well, we tried). Ceilings dropped to IFR as we were inbound so we diverted to Long Beach and took the ferry. Naturally the next day was clear skies. It was fun but man what busy airspace!

Default I flew my wife to Hilton Head Island (from Virginia)

It was her first flight in my RV-14A. She kept asking if I was sure I had put it together correctly...

We flew down on Thursday morning and spent the next 4 days enjoying the sun and beach. Played lots of tennis and ate too much food.

Flew home this morning. Even got to fly a full approach through moderate rain and a low overcast and broke out at 1500' right exactly on the centerline. The GTN650/G3X system is amazing.
