The 3/4 Mile High Club

Yeah, I didn’t quite get to 5,000 feet, but I did get to fly for about an hour at around 3.5k feet.  Holy crap – everyone needs to do this.  Talk about quality reflection time (once you get past the terror of being 5k feet above the planet with only a thin composite skin, some plexiglass shielding, and a 180HP engine turning a wooden prop you from plummeting back to earth).

It’s pretty amazing how primitive airplanes are.  You can literally see all the little cables, newels, and bolts that hold these things together and control the flight surfaces when you’re doing 120 knots (note how I’m using “flight surfaces” like I know what i’m talking about). 

Nothing really witty here – just another – “HOLY CRAP”.  This is smoking.

Teeny, teeny, teeny.  But it feels huge once you’re in the air.

 

Yes, those are the only two seats in the airplane.
