Beginning of the best day ever!!! 🚁 This trip solidified it for me, I want nothing more than to get my helicopter pilots license 👊 Always knew I wanted my pilots license and wasn't sure which one first but it's 100% helicopter, gonna work toward that full force!!! Thank you @sunshinehelicopters and pilot MJ for such an awesome ride!
Who's your Dudeman?
Two years ago today we did a photo shoot for a @vice article with @scolessarah about testing airplanes in Mojave "the spaceship engineers who build their own planes". The shoot was one of the final hops in the #suspendedtiger program with Sarah and I chasing in the #Ralphwise#gt400snort . The weather was awesome. The airplanes were awesome. An epic day.
My favorite flight of that program was a two hour sortie that had happened a month or so before. Crew chief @thegingerfredman, was concerned the #performanceengines built 550 wasn't broke in so we did a two hour run at low altitude to burn in the rings. The risk of flying the still green #Lancair at big power and low altitude was high enough that we decided chase was warranted, so I chased Mandude for the whole thing.
We flew the flight as a two ship at full smash. Dudeman in lead in the Tiger and me in Snort in safety chase. It was absolutely one of the most rewarding flights I have flown. Down in the weeds hauling ass and working the airspace with the second best test pilot I know (so awesome). We should all be so lucky. Thank you Larry Channel for an awesome program. #airplanesarecool
