To meet other pilots, my family and friends are sick of me talking about flying! I also love to share the flight experience with newbies. Just in this past month, I have taken up 3 potential / student pilots to show them the ropes. I love to share the sky and be a good GA ambassador.
Petaluma O69 the Two Niner Diner, the restaurants in Half Moon Bay near the airport, Shelter Cove, or Little River which has a new pilot shuttle to Mendocino.
Tecnam Sierra, Citabria, Cessna 152, Cessna 172, Pipers, and a little time in a G-1000 as well - some others such as Cirrus and Bonanza - whatever I can get stick time in!!!
I saw that silly show Flying Wild Alaska in January 2011 and thought if that guy John was a skateboarder from LA turned bush pilot then hell I can probably do it too.
My "discovery flight" over SF downtown, alcatraz, sailboats - we opened the Tecnam's cockpit and stuck our arms out the window and made arm snakes. Then he showed me zero G's - it was what made me begin flight school. My real training was not so fun - the Tecnam place went out of business - so I got stuck in another airport with a 152. Regardless, I got my cert and now love to fly when I can afford to.
I'm a Private Pilot flying out of Petaluma O69 Airport. Interested in meeting other pilots.... I'm also on a race/pit crew at the Reno Air Races every year . . . Angel Flight West member, EAA (2 chapters) member, Young Eagles pilot. . . .
