THANKS FOR THE MEM­O­RIES

Flying - - INBOX -

As a long­time sub­scriber, I’ve found ILAFFT to be both an ed­u­ca­tional tool and a source of amuse­ment. April’s les­son hit the “way back” but­ton as it brought me back to my in­tro­duc­tion to aer­o­bat­ics. My older brother had re­cently com­pleted his train­ing in this form of flight and was happy to thrill his stu­dent-pi­lot sib­ling. Af­ter the first loop in a Citabria, he asked his grin­ning pas­sen­ger how I liked it. Af­ter re­ply­ing some­thing to the ef­fect that it was cool, he told me that we’d try an­other one that wouldn’t in­clude fall­ing out of the top due to in­suf­fi­cient air­speed. He went on to a ca­reer as a crop-duster and owned sev­eral planes with PT in their name. Steve Ward, Sa­van­nah, Ge­or­gia I re­ally en­joyed read­ing Robert Fri­man’s ILAFFT in the April is­sue. For us old fly­ers who still en­joy aer­o­bat­ics, it was very touch­ing. Pi­lots un­der­stand this! Alan R. Mau­rer via email
