“That felt good.”

At 10 years old the girl in the video is a better pilot than a lot of guys I’ve flown with over the years.  Not as good as Super Girl though, she rocks it in the cockpit!


Took pseudo student (PS) up for a flight yesterday and I think we might actually be making some progress.  We started the flight with a take off, what else?  and apart from him taking FOREVER to get the mighty Cessna 150 up to full power he got us in the air like a pro.  At […]

Your Weekly Lex, For Strength


By lex, on July 15th, 2006
A couple of years ago, I had the idea that I’d post stories from “times I almost died.” T.I.A.D., in short.
I didn’t have that many, as it turns out – you don’t get that many chances to “almost die” before completing the act, and then someone else gets to tell […]

Plug Re-inserted

Two days ago the runway at my skydiving school, Skydive Twin Cities, had six inches of snow on the runway and the restrooms were frozen solid.  It looked like the drop zone would be still be in winter’s death grip this weekend so I pushed our opening day back to next week.  Everyone was disappointed […]

Ferry Flight Pic Of The Day

Stu took this picture of me and cameraman John Driftmier taking a day off in Thailand on the Cirrus trip from Singapore to the US last year.  It was a little intimidating driving the elephant with the guide to help but I managed to get it to move in more or less the direction I […]

Ferry Flight Pic Of The Day

End of the road for the Bonanza.  Here’s a shot of the Bonanza Cory and I delivered to Brazil last year.  The owner wanted us to bring his new plane directly to his ranch so I could teach him to operate off of the short grass runway he had.  It was a great day of […]

Plug Pulled

Six inches of fresh wet snow, cold temperatures for the next three days plus frozen restrooms and a muddy parking lot were enough to convince me that maybe we shouldn’t skydive this weekend.  It was a difficult decision but in the end I told the pilot to stay in Texas for another week and We […]

Ferry Flight Pic Of The Day

Being a reality TV star has it’s downside.  Like having to do interviews at the end of the day in Singapore instead of relaxing with a cold beer.   I almost felt sorry for Stu, almost.

Another Setback

This is getting ridiculous.  I’ve got twenty employees who only make money when we’re skydiving and so far this season they’ve made nothing.  Jump masters can’t jump, pilots can’t fly, packers have nothing to pack and video editors have nothing to edit.  Getting snow this late in the season would be funny if so many […]
