Bay Tour flight over San Francisco

Friday, March 18th, 2011

On New Years Eve 2010 I took my co-worker John Hamilton up for a flight in my Cessna 150. We headed up to San Francisco, did a Bay Tour, then returned via Half Moon Bay Airport where we had lunch at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. Then we continued down the coast back to Watsonville.

John brought along his camera and a GoPro that we mounted in the back window. I thought you might enjoy seeing a bit of what a Bay Tour looks like from a Cessna 150. If you’ve never been on a Bay Tour, I highly recommend giving your instructor a call and ask them to show you what it’s all about! Give the Santa Cruz Flying Club a call at 831-722-4580 if you’re looking for an instructor or rental aircraft!

Icon A5 Light Sport: Amazing in flight views

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Here is an awesome video of the Icon A5 in flight. They set it up with multiple GoPro cameras so you can see it from multiple angles in flight. How cool would it be to have a plane that can drive in to a lake, take off, touch-and-go on a paved runway, land back on the water, and then taxi up the boat ramp. Amazing!

Can aviation be fun? YOU BET!
