-flying at supersonic speed-

 

airspeedandaltitude:

I really wanted to go flying today to start the year off right. Fortunately, I was able to, however, UNFORTUNATELY the winds were something fierce and grew to be too strong for my personal minimums. Somewhere between getting the ATIS and hitting the pattern the wind increased by 5kts and became even more of a crosswind! Bummer.

They can’t all be winners, I guess. I did get a whopping .3hrs in and I got to knock the holiday rust off as well as try a new position for the GoPro (see above photo) which I think will work nicely for soloing. 

I hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve and has a great year ahead of them! Thanks for all of your support in my flying endeavors, I’ve really enjoyed getting the messages on Tumblr, Twitter and my e-mail with words of encouragement, flying tips, and overall airplane geekery. 

Here’s to 2014!
