Default KAVL to KDYB

Sharing my son’s flight back to work. Nice view of a big TS. He is a C-17 instructor pilot, Air Force major. Very proud of him. We share the 6A and he is an absolute top notch pilot. Based at KCHS. Hangared at KDYB.

That works. Wow, your son must have a hangar right behind mine (#21)! At the beginning of the video he taxied past the back side of my hanger. I'll look for him!

Actually it's hangar 34. Ed Horgan's old hangar. I was in 32 I think and moved over there when Ed passed away. I've had The 6A about 5 years now. Added a lot to the panel. It's a good IFR platform.

Excellent video. I absolutely hope he makes more. I also fly a 6A down here in South Carolina. Thanks for sharing!

You have me curious now Jim. I think its funny that we are both using RVs for weekly commuting since we are only a couple of hundred feet apart. I think your Charleston may be more entertaining than my Burlington.

So... When are you going out and coming back?

I lift off AVL at 7AM Mondays and land a bit after 5PM on Fridays. I am frequently the test subject for all the AVL ATC backup radios on my way out. I-26 s*x on Fridays. Sometimes my drive home from the airport is longer than the flight.

I miss Ed. He was a good bloke.
