Pilots Eye View: YYZ To ORD In 3 Minutes! *VIDEO*

Fri Jun 07, 2013 2:25 pm

Background

I've not been flying a huge amount of the past month as I've taken time off to deal with some family issues, followed by a short vacation down to Florida. However, yesterday I was finally back in the right hand seat and I took my new GoPro HD3 Black with me on a short Chicago to Toronto turn to see what it can do. This time lapse is the result. I hope you enjoy it.

I'm not sure why the video won't embed in the post. I'm pasting the code, but it's not coming up. Sorry for the inconvenience.

What that takeoff from YYZ was done in a blink of an eye lol....great concept but it would be nice if it was a notch slower....but great again!

Nice job, mate, and a great choice of music to accompany the vision. The 'gate-wait' on the taxiway at ORD was a bonus - watching the rest of the traffic helter-skelter across the screen!

Flightsimboy, I'll try and post both a time lapse of a full flight and the normal speed take off and arrival next time. I'm operating DFW to DEN on Monday morning and that's probably the next one up, so I'll try and get both videos done on that one.

Glad you enjoyed the music B707MT! I know some people don't enjoy a musical accompaniment to these videos, but it runs a very fine line on what's legal in terms of posting the actual ATC chatter etc.

Brilliant, sums up flying from the pilots POV and also shows what a fantastic job you guys have.

Great Video
There's flying and then there's flying

Great work man.

Why does the aeroplane appear to keep banking slightly? Was it constantly correcting for wind from the right or were you constantly making heading selections to the right?

I was waiting for someone to ask that  . It was very windy up at 34,000ft and we were constantly in and out of light turbulence. Normally it's a lot smoother than that. I'm in Madison about to operate my last flight of the day back to Chicago right now, but later this evening I'll be posting another one of these from DFW to DEN from today. Hopefully that one will be a bit smoother!

Unfortunately the time lapse video I was making from DFW to DEN came out overexposed and most of the footage was unusable. However, I have posted the approach and landing which you can view at http://youtu.be/qIxhkKmViHU
