That's a great idea! I need at least 25 gallons for that drawing.

Somebody from the forum suggested to put this bird in the water. I looked over the ocean and there is not much free airspace there

It is to be hoped we don't have any teenagers on the site, because we all know what gets drawn on the chalkboard at school when the teacher is out !!!!

What steps does one take to plan and execute these flights?

Step 1. Study your airspace. Stay out of arrivals/departures you have more room to the east to play then I have here. Be ready to talk to ATC at any point of your flight.
Step 2. Take a tablet/phablet/smartphone with any nav app and draw a circle or any geometric figure on it. If unable to draw choose anything on the map i.e. VOR circle, lat/long square etc. Choose an entry point.
Step 3. Have an APRS tracker or any kind of tracker with on/off switch.
Step 4. Switch the tracker on over entry point.
Step 5. Switch off when done. Enjoy your track on Google Maps.

I am using Foreflight and having a stylus it's relatively easy to dot a figure looking at 2D silhouette. I also can print on transparency and dot it over iPad Pro. Takes a bit of time but you have some fun hand flying precisely. It's very easy to botch a sky drawing especially complex ones. Couple seconds missed on 140 degree turn and your line is crooked. I completed about 20% of what I drew because of traffic, weather, birds, winds, late/early turns, iPad puked etc

Default contest rules

Ok so for this contest, I declare you must follow Vlad's rules: only hand flying allowed!!

Very nice three sisters. Talk about motivation.
My motivation used to be nice beaches, vegas. As I got older it is Now seeing retired friends, and ... APRS art.
