Random Aviation Photo

Back in August, as part of my day job, I got to fly the AOPA Cessna Grand Caravan down to First Flight Airport in North Carolina to celebrate Orville Wright’s birthday. It was a great event, with presentations, events and kite flying. Enjoy this shot, below.


Happy Birthday, Orville Wright!


One of the things I love best about my day job is that I am steeped in aviation, past, present and future. Today, I got to sample the past when a group of us from AOPA came down to First Flight Airport (KFFA) in North Carolina today to rededicate a pilot facility that opened 10 years ago during the Centennial of Flight.

There are all kinds of activities going on down here, despite the rain.  Below are some of my other photos.  Enjoy!
