|Piper Arrow 997 in front of her Bellingham hangar.|
Wayne passed the passion along to me when we were dating and he also became my flight instructor. It's nice that we can share this common interest and enjoy the pleasures that flying can bring.
Come fly with us in our Piper Arrow. She used to live with us in Southern California. Down there she got to stay outdoors on the tarmac in the warm sunshine, but up here in the Pacific Northwest with lots of rain and cold she lives in a nice protective hangar.
When we come to Bellingham we get to take her out and fly the Pacific Northwest skies. We've been lucky with the weather this week. It's been cold, but clear. That let us fly twice so far.
The first time was to practice takeoffs and landings to maintain proficiency. Here's a quick video so you can ride along.
The second was to fly to nearby Anacortes Airport to visit with our friends Ken and Sam.
Want to experience more flying adventures in the Pacific Northwest? Check out Wayne's book Flying the Pacific Northwest. In it you can "take the controls of a Piper Arrow as your personal flight instructor leads you to out-of-the-way spots in a recreational aircraft." It's a good read for pilots and aviation enthusiasts alike. -- Margy
