Default Book

Hey Vlad! I think you really should write a book about your travels. It'd be a hit in the flying community....

Probably the most amazing RV adventure I've seen on VAF. Love the photos. Thanks Vlad!

Vlad,

Is there anyplace on this planet you don't run into or know somebody? Van's needs to put you on their payroll or at least spring for an engine for you. You have to be Van's biggest ambassador.

Dont paint your plane, or you wont be recognized.

If you do, do it in gun metal grey and leave the fiberglass in white.

I can tell you I was sitting on the fence about starting a build until I met Vlad. He spent time talking with my son - he was so excited about the build when we left.

Forever grateful.

I enjoy Vlad's writing style. It's boiled down to the facts and sprinkled with insights that allow for reading between the lines. Superb!

Thanks for kind words everyone. Dave12 couldn't be possible without you thanks for the mag replacement and timing.



There will be a couple pages extension to this trip as I track back to NJ via Alaska and British Columbia. In Russia my airplane was parked for several days but in British Columbia there was a lot of flying. Come here next week check it out. You won't regret.

Default IFR Into Nome

Hi Vlad,

You just proved the best way to fly IFR in Alaska. I Follow Roads.

Been there and have followed several through the years, a couple of times flying formation in Hueys over the highway back to Anchorage.

Once, got stuck behind a semi, chin bubble was covered from road spray, finally was able to pass it on a straight stretch. Decided enough of that and we changed it to I Follow Railroad tracks.

Reading/following your amazing journey! Enjoying it and all of the photos.

Thanks for sharing!

Best regards,
Mike Bauer
