Oct. 8 ï¿½ My Waco flying experience can only be best described in two words: adrenaline rush. I went barnstorming with Mike Hanson at Biplane Rides located at Daugherty Field in Long Beach, California. Mike asked what I would like to get from this four-hour block of instruction in the Waco. I was quick to answer: a few stalls, spins, spin recovery, unusual attitude recovery, steep turns, and possibly some acrobatics! We did it all! I had the time of my life! While in-flight, I informed Mike via our headsets, "I've died and gone to heaven!" Mike answered, "No way, buddy, you are alive and well, your just having a Waco experience! However, it's going to be difficult to get that smile off your face for the next few weeks!" Thank you again, AOPA!
Advocates for Santa Monica Municipal Airport gathered Aug. 25 to rally support for Measure D, a ballot initiative that would require voter approval before the airport can be closed or redeveloped.
“I never went to an FBO I thought was fun,” said Michael Thayer. Determined to change that, he opened Flying Tigers Aviation at Chino Airport in Chino, California, in June 2013.
