CAP Airplane

(no subject)

Flew as the Observer for about 2 1/2 hours yesterday out of Van Nuys. Plane was identical to the one in this icon, Cessna 182.

We were practicing low altitude air search patterns. As in about 500-700 Ft. off the ground at about 20 Knots above stall. It will be some time before I try flying that myself. We actually flew over my own house out and back as we did most of this about 10-20 miles west of the Gorman VOR.

Pilot training is about four years off for non-CAP related reasons. But this will do for now.

Hangin' on the prop. It's not party time til the stall indicator is a constant.

Pilot was really good, I didn't hear the stall indicator even once. We were going to go up to 10K and deliberately stall a few times so we could feel what the plane did when we pushed it too far but we ran out of time.

Looking forward to the day I can afford to fly in the front seat. The rear seat "scanners" don't long any flying time and so don't have to pay for anything, which suits my current situation.
