We spent some time sitting in 3 Tango Charlie talking Avionics and our returns to flying. If you follow Franks blog, AirDorrin, you will know his plane was in for service for quite a long time. Frank knows exactly the struggle I am having, wanting to get back in the air, yet patience to do it safely and slowly.
We had a good discussion about personal minimums and how they have changed with all my down time. Great topics that I need to address as I move back into the left seat.
We talked engines and overhauls, shops and new power plants vs field overhauls, first time runs vs multiple rebuilds. All very good things to think about.
We took a break for lunch at the Green Turtle then headed back to the airport so Frank could get he and his plane home. I captured a short video of his start up, taxi and departure. The winds were brutal so we'll miss some engine sounds. Enjoy!
