first flight


Chris Walterson
 

I managed to get my friend to edit a video of my first flight in the Q 200 Subaru. All the ground shots are from the second flight. I didn't want my wife there, so she filmed the second flight . The in flight shots are from the first flight.

 I hit the reflexor on takeoff to get a better angle. I am a big athiest, but  have always done the sign of the cross since my first flight thirty years ago, so I don't mess with luck. Interestingly, I took a Catholic priest for a ride last year and you should of see his face when I did that.

I stayed between 150 and 160 indicated , stayed low rpm, 3,000 and flew for an hr. Around the seven minute mark I do some slow flight /stall.

Uneventfull.

It also flew hands off with no trimming needed.      Still have four feet of snow , so another two months before the adventure begins.

I only have a short video of my first flight (controlled airport with security ramp, so my friend was only able to capture from the hangar area). I remember pushing that throttle forward and thinking:  “I have never been so apprehensive in my life…well here goes!”  All went well, but I will never forget that.
