Private Pilot Resources - Aviation Blog

I obtained my private pilot license in 2006. This site is dedicated to capturing little gems of knowlege I collected during training. Periodically I add items I find during research so that others might benefit from them. Please review the disclaimer at the bottom of this page.

In 1999 a friend invited me to go flying and I was hooked. I live in the Bay Area about an hour south of San Francisco and fly out of Reid Hillview (KRHV). Please do get in touch and lets go fly!!

Halfmoon Bay KHAF and Bay Tour

This past weekend we did a wonderful Bay Tour. The weather was perfect, visibility endless and the coast clear of fog. I worked the radios while my fellow Tradewinds pilot John Stratakos took us across San Jose International and up the Bay out to the coast. We passed over Golden Gate bridge and dropped into the San Francisco bay. We cuised around for a while and then I took the plane down to Halfmoon Bay where we stopped for lunch. The airport was busy and folks were out in droves to enjoy the great weather. After a great lunch we headed back along the coast down to Watsonville and back over the hill to Reid Hillview. Total flight time 2.5 hours.
