|2005/12/03 Saturday: Safety Pilot|
π 2005-12-03 18:20 by Merlin in Flying
Right after the Google Party, which I left a bit early to get a little sleep, I offered to be safety pilot to my coworker, fellow pilot, and charter pilot to burning man :), Pablo.
Pablo did his flight to Salinas under the hood (i.e. without seeing anything outside), while I sat in the copilot seat to make sure he wasn't going to hit anything, or anyone ;)
After that, I was supposed to meet an instructor at WVFC to be checked out in the Cessna 172XP I was planning to fly to Santa Monica monday, but that got cancelled due to her falling sick too (I was still under the weather at that time, but capable of some things as long as I had rest in between).
I spent the hour after that trying to find an instructor who could check me out in that 172XP, but it was hard as few had ever flown that plane (that's why I want it, it's always available)
The other pictures from that flight are here
