On the way to Hampton Airport, I asked Portsmouth Tower for clearance to fly direct to Pease at 2000 ft.
Looks like some pretty good size jets down their.
There it is. The new CTLS at Hampton Airport.
There's two instructors that can give you a check ride.
And, if there's a donut on the counter they'll let you eat it.
You can't get any more glass panel that this. The instructor said it even has auto-pilot. I said, "Really?" "Oh, yes yes, once you know how to use it you will..."
(Not my leg)
If you look carefully, you will see a flap setting or minus 6 degrees. That's right, MINUS 6 degrees. I read somewhere that it increases the top end speed...
Time to go home. I guess I'll drill another hole through the Portsmouth (Pease) air space.
Nice VFR day over Portsmouth.
There were aircraft landing and taking off underneath of me. (Yes, I have the traffic in site.)
That looks like a PanAM 747. At Pease?
Maybe it's the secret service getting the airport ready for the next TFR...
The Dover Point bridge. I wonder what they plan to do with the old original span that's getting all rusty...
