This was definitely my most stressful flight of 2017!

Huge thanks to Gold Seal and Dan at Skyranch for the invite, and the motivation to get my multi done.

I had not planned on starting that before finishing IFR… but it has been a fun ride. We’ll be seeing a lot of more Dan in the future episodes training with him on the big birds!

And my multi engine instructor Kevin was awesome, Thanks to him and Spectrum Airways for for tolerating me filming with their planes 🙂 

This trip inspired me to really buckle down and get some serious training leading up to it, so that I could really show up prepared. 
Training with Dan was solid and we got some great content, and will likely be back to do some more flying with Dan and his massive radial twins! 
The fact that I ended up doing a 20,000 sky dive was an added “bonus”?  I have to be honest that I was pretty scared to do that, and right up until the last moment was looking for excuses to get out of it…  but the experience was surreal – And I am glad I did it – will I do it again?  I am not sure I could top it, so probably not 😛

FLIGHT CHOPS DISCLAIMER:
I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
