Perfect weather to play off shore. Found an abandoned boat.

Checked our taxes at work.

Then went food shopping. All regular stuff nothing to brag about

Where is N666BK?

Default Changed the oil

Put the wheel pants back on since they finally got the main runway finished and we don't have to land on dirt anymore. Flew in the pattern. Not very exciting, but KFLY is back in business!

I made a quick out and back to KPIA to pick up an RV buddy after an OT shift on Friday. Rides above FL190 were pretty terrible in the area. I was at 15,500 and passed this SWA over the Mississippi cruising at 16,000.

KPIA where I had an amazing wheel landing.

We had a great sunset to watch on the way home followed by another awesome greaser at home, I even have a witness.

On Saturday I was persuaded to head down to Pine Bluff for the BullDog Formation clinic despite the less than desirable weather. Man I'm glad I went.

I brushed up on my FFI knowledge on the way down, about an hour of actual and the GPS18 circle to 36 was easily doable with the 800 OVC.

We were able to get plenty of ground school in and the weather lifted enough for this "Red Scary" to make his first training flight on Saturday evening. Lots of learning, good food and company to finish off Saturday and one more training flight on Sunday before I had to head home for work. Thanks to everyone who made this clinic happen, I can't wait to do another!

Not real exciting but helped 41 scouts earn their aviation merit badges! My 7a was used to teach pre flights and other lessons about aviation safety. Actually had a lot of fun interacting with these young adults, many who seemed very interested in aviation careers.

Unfortunately in science, what you believe is irrelevant.

Default Flytoday - each day, Sat & Sun

Finished two week trip, by WN, to LAX late Friday, so flew the -6A around SE Houston on Sat and Sun afternoons. Following frontal passage on Friday the visibility was outstanding and the temps cooled nicely. Spotted my Lone Star Squadron friends, 3-ship, returning Sunday from the Reklaw fly-in, and felt the need to follow and fly-by to salute their return home.

Saturday, final to Runway 35 at KLBX


RV7A - purchased flying 05/2020
RV6A - sold

Flew from Carlsbad, CA down to Brown Field to pick up something. Transited the San Diego VFR corridor, which even with me being used to an airplane going Mach .80, still was a busy few minutes. It was my first time through..

Left Brown Field and decided to head over to Montgomery Field to pick up a new fuel strainer and some lunch. Back through the VFR corridor again, this time on a trip only 19 NM long. The corridor drops you off about 3,000? high on a left downwind for the 28?s into MYF. Fortunately with some advanced planning, the RV does just fine doing a fast descent.

After leaving Montgomery Field, it was back to Carlsbad via the coast.

Great way to spend a bit of time. Really love the RV...
