Editor’s note: I’m off in Palm Springs this week at the AOPA Aviation Summit, so you guys get the best-of this week. First up is a post I originally did back on April 10, when I got to take the AOA sweepstakes plane out for a spin. Enjoy!
Yesterday, my regular flight instructor was a bit under the weather, so she suggested I fly with my original instructor. Dave Hirschman has one of the best jobs at the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. Not only is he the senior editor of AOPA Pilot magazine, but he’s also the handler for our sweepstakes aircraft, the Aviat Husky.
The views from the Husky can’t be beat, with large windows. Because you fly slowly, you can actually fly with window or the door open. And I had the smoothest landing ever — in the grass! Below are some pictures I took during the flight. Enjoy!!
