A Day out flying with friends.

Went out flying with a friend. We flew the Muskateer so I could get practice landing it. Got about 30 landings under my belt, then we parked the Muskateer, hoped into a Cessna 162 (aka The Kite) and flew over to KHGR for lunch. After lunch we went out and got ice cream in the near by town. Here’s so videos. I didn’t think I’d like the 162 as much as I did. It’s so light on the controls and really kinda nice on the inside. Anyway. Videos=




Bonus picture. When we were eating lunch at KHGR, having flown their in the 162, the Muskateer we had just flown an hour earlier pulled up and parked. It had followed us like a lost puppy lol. (162 in the foreground with the shark teeth, and the Muskateer in the foreground) Here’s the panel on the 162. It’s pretty clean

It’s got those teeth. It kinda looks derpy on the ramp but the view from the inside is awesome. A little kid was in the FBO and was pointing at it and yelling, Baby baby baby! Lol

Wow, cool mate! I wish I could do that! I’ve never been in anything smaller than a Saab 340B

162 is about as small as you get :P

Oh also, we did slow flight and power off stalls in the 162 and it feels like stops in mid air. It stalls around 40ish knots with flaps in. At 3000 feet that feels like nothing

That’s really cool. A friend of my dads is in flight school, and he said he could take me up sometime. I’m looking forward to that day. xD

Where and what age did you get those flying lessons?

I’m currently 18 and I’m training in the Muskateer out of KJYO, or Leesburg Executive Airport in Virginia. I started ground school at 17, and just came into a part time job that will pay for my lessons.

I flew a Cessna 152 when I was 14 :)

I prefer conventional displays rather than the G1000 in Cessnas. While it’s a lot more useful, and can map the whole world, I prefer to use analog for my flights ;)

Muskateer has dials. That’s why I am using it for training. It’s not even a g1000 in the C162 ethier. It’s a G300. It’s like G1000 lite.
