But for John Prince
  • I think we all remember our first solo, or maybe
    one of our stressed out check rides, but I do
    remember my first Aerobatic ride.  I went out to
    a local airport in Dayton Ohio to take my first
    Aerobatic lesson from a very experienced air show
    pilot.
  • It was 30 minutes in length and filled with more
    excitement in aviation than I had ever seen.  In
    all those years of flying I never saw the wing go
    through 90 degrees to inverted.

25
John Prince Continued
  • After a few aileron rolls, loops, and a barrel
    roll or two, I was soaked to the skin and
    visually lost.  I had done more in thirty minutes
    than in any other type of flying.  Over the next
    year I took another 40 lessons and every one was
    filled to the minute and soaked to the skin.
  • He never could get me to do rolling turns very
    well in a Decathlon, but I never knew a Decathlon
    could do them anyway.  The G-Meter and the Pitts
    is the key to happiness, 6 -3.   Im hooked, and
    will forever be that way.
