Harry loves to introduce aviation to young kids. Harry recently met this young boy and his grandparents at the airport. They were watching the planes. he told him it was more fun on the other side of the fence and offered to let him sit in a few planes.

This is what experienced pilots call a sucker hole. It looks like a way out between two cells until you try to fly through it.  This picture was taken at KGAI earlier in July.  Here are some more “sucker holes” via Google Images.

Harry’s friend and business owner Brenda in the news again.  Brenda owns Bravo Flight Training. Brenda has been teaching a friend’s (Lin, also a pilot and aircraft owner) mother to fly.  Carol is 82 years young and she just received her student pilot certificate.  Great job Brenda and Carol.

As an aircraft owner and pilot this picture is painful to look at.  This is why you should never leave an aircraft parked under a hangar door. It should be all the way in or all the way out and clear of the door.  Hangar doors can fail. The chain/cable can break, the counter weights can fall off, etc.  Keep the aircraft clear of the door when parked.

Today in Aviation History
May 25, 1927: Lt. James A. Doolittle files the first outside loop in a Curtiss P-1-B pursuit plane at McCook Field. Starting at an altitude of 8000 ft Doolittle pointed the nose of the a/c down and describes a circle of 2000 ft diameter, leveling out at his original altitude. At the bottom of the circle, flying inverted, it is estimated that his a/c was traveling at 280 mph. The outside loop had not been previously attempted because of fear that the a/c would disintegrate. [Note: French pilot Pegoud is purported to have performed outside loops prior to this date.]
