Chris Flies The Champ

Phil mentioned that he'd found a Champ for rent for $80/hr and he was getting checked out in it. I knew Chris had a biennial coming up, so I recommended that he get his tailwheel endorsement.

He called the instructor, Les, and they decided to meet up last night and get started. I tagged along to get some photos. Les is a very nice guy and both Phil and Chris say he's a great instructor. You don't hear that every day!

Chris and Les taxiing over to the fuel pumps.

Chris adding some fuel.

Les hand-propping the plane - no starter!

Look at the serious look on Chris' face!

After many attempts, Les got the plane started and they were off.

Taking off.

Coming in for a landing.

Happy flying! Jack
