Default First Father Daughter Flight - Pics

After returning from Oshkosh this year we decided the time was right for our daughter to take her first flight in N200PF. I have to say it was the most rewarding flight of my life...the two of us flying in our homebuilt. I'll never forget this day as long as I live.

Here are a few pictures from the flight:



Taxiing out and saying hi to Mom.



Climbing out of KANE.



Face in the sun and loving it...thank goodness!



Pointing out the clouds in case I wasn't looking.



A real RV grin!



She loved the 59.9 degree turns!



De-rigging after an amazing time together.



I've never been so happy to see fingerprints on the inside of my canopy.

Default What a cutie!

Wow Peter! Your daughter is beautiful. What a great thing to share with her!

It was great to meet you, and be your partner in crime, (just Kidding) sneaking our planes out on Sunday morning.

Thanks Danny! It was truly an honor to meet you after all these years! As I said, you and Beautiful Doll were a big inspiration through my entire build. You made the week and total blast!

Also, thanks for the coaching on our "early" departure. This flight with my daughter wouldn't have happened if we wouldn't have made it out on Sunday morning. Does this look familiar? (Danny and I had to make our own route through the grounds before the show started. We pushed our RV's up to the flight line with some help from Danny's friends and his wife. All perfectly legal but a lot of work!)



Glad you two made it home safe and sound Danny! Thanks again for everything!

- Peter

Great photos with your daughter. Both your aircraft looked terrific in front of the Garmin pavillion.

Great pictures Peter!

What is she sitting on? I still have trouble getting my kids high enough to see over the panel and they are 7 and 9.

Those are great pictures, it reminds me of the stuff my daughter and I use to do. She is 30 and married so we don't hang out to much anymore. But there is the Granddaughter....Those are memories that will stay with you a long time.
