Down the Valley

It’s one thing to fly an airplane thousands of feet above the ground, and quite another to fly it down a narrow valley in the back country. This blog has previously featured the Aviat Aircraft “Husky.” Here’s another video of the same aircraft following a valley to a grass strip for a very nice landing. The camera is mounted near the tail of the aircraft giving a great view of the whole approach.

Clearly this type of flying requires plenty of instruction, skill, and practice. And then the thrill of accomplishing this type of flight is priceless.

Always do your checklist!
