Chasing the Sun in the Caravan!

I took this photo of the sun going down while ferrying a Caravan from Illinois to Colorado.  I was flying over Iowa at 8,500 feet at the time.  Had to fight a headwind the entire 5 hour flight.

But the aircraft was successfully delivered! Another happy customer in the books! #pilotperks

Don't miss the 39th Annual Sun 'n Fun International Fly In & Expo 2013

If you're anywhere near Florida April 9-14 , try and make it out to the 39th Annual Sun 'n Fun International Fly In and Expo in Lakeland Florida!  It's the second biggest "fly in" in the country. If I'm not flying skydivers that weekend I will be there!

Fueling up the Twin Otter aka "Shark One"

A funny picture of Heather teasing me while I was refueling the Twin Otter aka "Shark One" in between flying loads of skydivers at Skydive Taft in Southern California.  The DHC-6 Twin Otter is the most common twin turbine jump airplane in North America. It holds up to 23 skydivers. They love it for its large exit door and high wings that make "spotting" easier. This aircraft was leased by us from Skydive Perris.

Ferrying a Caravan from Georgia to Illinois

I flew this C208 Caravan on a ferry flight from warm Atlanta Georgia to the snowy Chicago Illinois area. It will be undergoing modifications so that it can start its new life as a jump aircraft.
