Flying Should Be Fun!

Gail Schipper forwarded this beautiful little video she took of herself flying her Bücker Jungmann on the 4th of July. She titled it “Flying should be Fun” and I couldn’t agree more.


“I had a lovely flight this morning. Couldn’t resist”

    We did get your lovely plane at the Idaho Symposium but we had YOU–a real delight. Glad you and Stephanie made it. I enjoyed your passion for flying. LOVE your video. I’m passing it onto all my women pilot friends.

    SEE you next year in Idaho.

    Glad you liked the video. It was as fun as it looked! The music is from a new group called Bitter:Sweet. They have a web site where you can listen to more. The camera on the plane is a Contour HD. My husband was also playing with his Panasonic Lumix from the ground.

    The Bücker didn’t go to the mountain flying conference. At 100 mph and fuel stops every 2 hours it would have taken too long to get there from Colorado. It is also not suited to anything but the poshest of grass, so there were only a few strips that would have qualified.

    GO FLY!

      I gave my husband a Contour HD helmet cam for Christmas. You do neat things with it.

    I love it Gail. It would have been so great to see it at the conference too! Did I miss it, or was the internet connection not good enough there?
