Piedmont Aerosports


Spent the weekend at Twin Lakes with Doug learning to fly a Trike - different than a 172/182 so I was challenged. Doug's ability to take one back to the basics is awesome...had fun and learned a lot. Thanks Doug....the journey continues!!!

David Hum from Front Royal, VA spent a few days without his Airborne XT 912 to tame the shrew (Tanarg) at Piedmont Aerosports in Advance, NC. He'll be sitting for his Sport Pilot Checkride soon with FAA Examiner Ron Dixon at Buffalo Sports in Lynchburg/Amherst area of Virginia. Best of luck David!!!

Tom and Diana Kemfer from Mont Eagle, TN visited for a week, while Tom trained for his WSCL endorsement. Our last flight yesterday had us experiencing a multi-airport excursion to Davidson County (KEXX) to Mid-Carolina (KRUQ) to Piedmont Soaring Society (KPSS) and back to Twin Lakes (8A7) in mid-day conditions. First time we witnessed a self-launch sailplane takeoff using a Rotax 505 two-smoker engine. Pretty impressive!

Robert Griffin from Raleigh, is working towards his Sport Pilot certificate while visiting the Local grass runway.

Looks like a good evening to take the Tanarg for a spin!

Ricky Mayes and I went XC to KINT this afternoon in butter smooth air. Made it back shortly after sunset. First time Ricky flew his Trike into Controlled Airspace!

My friend, Kit Clews, displayed his Cygnet 103 at the Airtime booth during the Sun n Fun airshow, along with his RV, the Cokemobile. Before departing the show grounds Kit stopped by the Campgrounds to help me push the Tanarg into my trailer. Next year I think I will invest in a winch....Thanks Kit!

Last day of Sun n Fun started with a breezy flight around the pattern, and then disassembling the Tanarg in the noonday heat....
