Back In The Saddle


The big ball of fire finally made an appearance in Wisconsin and I somehow managed to fly the Super Grand Caravan up to 14,000 feet and back 30 times without breaking it.  It’s always a challenge to get back into the groove of flying skydivers in a plane that can make the round trip from takeoff to landing in 13 minutes or less.  Fly 30 seconds to far down wind and it will take you 2 minutes longer to get back to the spot the jumpers want to exit the plane.  2 minutes doesn’t sound like much but when you are paying $15.00 a minute and flying up to 32 loads a day it adds up.  Still beats having a real job though.
