Piper Warrior Short Hop (KBED) - (KFIT) - (KBED)

Sun Nov 08, 2009 6:11 am

Hi everyone,

This is my second my trip report (my first can be found here)

Last weekend my friend took me up on one of his flight lessons in a Piper Warrior. We took off from Hanscom (KBED) and flew west. Once out over the practice area we did some power-on and power-off stalls, as well as steep turns. We then headed over to Fitchburg (KFIT) and did a few touch and goes there, before returning to Hanscom.

Here is a Falcon 2000 (VP-BRA), scheduled for a flight to Farnborough (EGLF)

*I stopped taking pictures between our first touch-and-go and our approach into Hanscom because the steep turns were getting to me*

The view was great, and his landings were solid aswell! Overall, I had a great time sitting in on my Noah's lesson! (besides my motion-sickness)
I'd like to thank my friend Noah for taking me up, and his instructor John!
