Went down to Catto today to checkout the new cowling they are building for the new BCSC – V2. You could say the work they do is outstanding! Checkout the new boot cowl they are working on.
We have just completed the 6th annual High Sierra Fly-in! We had over 150 planes come on over the course of the weekend with 120 plus camping on Saturday night. Honestly we lost count on the actual numbers but fun was certainly had by all. Saturdays dinner played host to just over 275 people as they were fed, order entertained by a large firework display and of course the big white mans fire until the we hours of the morning.
1 pilot came all the way from Australia to visit us, cheapest another flew his 185 from Maine and many others came from all parts of the country including Canada. Mu entire year dreams about this fly in we have created in the desert and now its already over and I am already looking forward to next years event.
The STOL Drag event was a huge success. More on that in my next post but you will certainly enjoy these photos from the many various photographers that came to our event. Please also make certain to see the High Sierra Fly-in group on Facebook, the thread on Backcountrypilot.org and Supercub.org.
Well it’s that time of year again when airplanes going 500mph low and fast! This year it was about the 3 heavies doing there thing. RareBear, Strega and Voodo. 6 time race champion Steve Hinton Jr., was looking for his 7th tittle but the Voodo engine had other plans giving second place to the vimage image image imageery fast RareBear. Stregas pilot Hoot Gibson earned his first championship as Strega pretty much smoked the field. Always a good time to see and hear these beautiful aircraft flying.
I have the Garmin G3 going into the SQ. Trying to keep this light I have only added a USB port, a small traditional airspeed indicator and that’s really it. Here are a few examples.
The high desert of Nevada served it up good this past week. Seems as though there is some form of history arou nd almost every corner. This is the time of year to get your exploration on with cooler temps and calm winds. We now own almost 300 acres of real estate in the middle of nowhere offering us a base to the big door that opens up to adventure. Have a look at a few of the items we found the past couple days.
The smoke is clearing out and there s a chill in the air. Won’t be long now before old man winter is here….however, we still have a few months of great flying to do. This time of year is the best time to fly in these parts
