Aviation Air Race 5-19-13:
The race is on. Have you figured the best route yet? First, you need to
know were your destinations are. I found out to do that you need to look
at the back of the Air Race "T" shirt. Bill Kennedy provided me with some
insight to that part of the Air Race. A little map work will reveal that
visiting the three airports on separate trips will run up 684 nm. If you
tackle them in one giant flight you can get it down to 609 nm. Either way,
the trip encompasses a lot of square miles. Not counting landings and take-offs,
climbs and winds aloft, flying in a Skyhawk with an average speed of 105
kts, you can count on 5hrs and 48mins. With the new apps for the iPad you
can let the computer calculate the whole flight for wind correction, ground
speed and a whole bunch of other information. I've never landed at Block
Island but I hear it's an interesting place to visit.
For Sale 5-16-13:
The bulletin board in the pilots lounge has all kinds of information. If
you happen to be in northern Maine on the Wings and Wheels weekend you
can attend the Wings and Wheels at the Houlton Airport. A number of years
ago someone asked me to fly them to Presque Isle Maine, just north of Houlton.
The return flight was at night and when you turn south from Presque Isle
the space between there and Millinocket is very dark. The sectional chart
has "houses" shown as landmarks. There is no horizon, just black sky and
black earth. So after you buy one of these planes you can try it out on
a cross country adventure to Presque Isle Maine. CLICK
see information on aircraft shown.
