Yep...I used to fly out from Stellar Air Park, Deer Valley, Falcon Field, Sky Harbor and Williams Field when I lived in AZ.

If I ever get to AZ again in the near future, I'm wearing my helmet and nervously looking to the sky.



Way to go, Ben! Still planning a potential XC solo to Albany at the end of July?

So you must be down at Embry Riddle? Yeah, flying is a blast! I got my private about 3 years ago, they say your first landings are the only perfect ones you'll get, it'* all downhill from there. Isn't the Cirrus the one with the built in ballistic chute?
