    I had a guy take me on a similar trip about 20 years ago before I started traveling for a living. He had a new Mooney that he got through a marriage and his wife had passed away so he had no one to fly with. He had a TACAN well before GPS was common. All he did was fly to 1000 feet, press a button, then the plane flew a profile and beeped when it was 1000 feet off the other runway. Didn't seem like much piloting but I didn't care because the views were amazing. Thanks for the memory, I'll fly with you anytime.

    My pleasure.

    With this particular plane there was an 2-axis autopilot (altitude hold, heading hold) autopilot so outside of the airport area I kept it on that. Much more reliable than me! Plus I have more time to enjoy the view outside without being precisely on my numbers. I think if I ever do any very long distance flying (1+ hours) this would also save on fatigue.

    Great pics Patrick. I used to occasionally fly our Cherokee 235 from Boulder, CO to Phoenix or other long distance destinations and the dual axis AP is a must! Phoenix was a 5 - 6 hour flight, so the instrumentation indeed saves a lot of pilot fatigue.

    When we lived in MA years ago, I use to fly from our local FBO to Marthas Vineyard (30 minute flight) once or twice a week in the early morning, have breakfast at the Vineyard, fly back and be in the office by 9:30 or so. It was a great way to "change the pace."

    Thank you for sharing the pics - good stuff!!

    Great pictures - thanks!

    Alan - I've been to the Vineyard for a meal (and Nantucket), and it's such a fun trip. Flying into Katama just for a trip to the beach is also great. My last jaunt was up to Bar Harbor for an overnight. The Harborside hotel up there is really nice.

    I'm not sure which is more dangerous - flying in a small engine plane or eating that HUGE jalapeņo pepper!

    Great pics Patrick, thanks for sharing. As I told you before my son still looking into being a pilot, way, way in the early stages. I'll let him know you're ready to get him up there, see what he says.

    It's a double-whammy:

    Eating a huge jalapeņo pepper and THEN flying in a small plane!

    Yep - dangerous for the "other" folks in the plane.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. It brings back fond memories of days gone by.

    Looks great. I have considered it myself before, but I just can't get past thinking about that feeling when, on your first solo flight, you realise that you singlehandedly have to land the thing!

    Patrick!
    Way cool! Good lookin' bird. 182?

    We've had lousy weather here for 2 weeks. Looks like it's going to break Sunday or Monday. Gonna do some fall foliage in upper NY / VT area as soon as it clears.
