Orion and Bonnie shared their interest to go flying a while back, so we finally made it happen. Jesse was a last minute addition who we all gladly took along for the journey. The flight took an hour and some from Troutdale, to Mt. St. Helens, and back. Orion even got to take the controls […]
Since Jeffrey had been out of town the last couple months, we had a talk a week ago about flying before he left again, and thankfully everything worked out to let us get in the air. I tasked Jeffrey with finding some awesome people to join us and he selected JJ and Ilona which worked […]
Since my mom was out of the state for Mothers Day, I had the pleasure of taking my friend Cassie, her sister and their mother, Sue, on a lovely flight around downtown Portland and through the Columbia Gorge around Dog Mountain which they had hiked the day before.

I had a flight scheduled […]
Took friends Michael, Kent, and Thomas around Mt. Hood. Unlike the times before, this time I went south first and finished going through the Gorge. The conditions were amazing. Highest altitude yet.
