n350sl Systems page up, cruising out the engine. Looking for optimal prop RPM and leaning out! It's interesting that the speed differential between max speed and lean-of-peak speed is not very large. Depending on the altitude, highest speed fuel flow is around 16-20 GPH and is about 2-5 knots faster than Lean-of-peak at about 12.5 GPH! Begs the question, why ever burn all that gas for so little gain! #avgeek #columbia350 #G1000 #garmin #glasspanel #highPerformance #cruiseFlight #teenagePilot 6d

n350sl After a 12 hour delay, we can be off! Departing Austin through a thin overcast layer at 2000 shortly, and we'll be at our first pit stop in Bloomington Indiana in 4 hours and a bit! Give us a track on FlightAware if anyone is really bored! #avgeek #columbia350 #teenagepilot #privatePilot 4w
  •   dgabalski Dayton Air Show is on Saturday, if you're around! 4w
  •   n350sl @dgabalski if it was just me, I'd be there in a heartbeat! Unfortunately my mom and brother aren't as super av-geeky as my dad and I! That's why him and I fly front seat, and they just sleep in the back 4w
  •   piperj3cub I would like to go there and wanted to see all those airplanes. 😀😀😎 4w
  •   piperj3cub I think U have ur Dad's genes cuz u both R aviators and in my family are not aviators, only just me. 4w

n350sl This weather sucks... Trying to get from KAUS to KBMG today, doesn't look great! #avgeek #pilot #teenagepilot #columbia350 #foreflight 4w
  •   socalairpirate DUUUDE!!! You shoulda flown here to TRL!!! ...not that the weather was any better. 4w
  •   n350sl @socalairpirate we were thinking of heading up the west side of Dallas' Bravo, but we are heading to Sudbury, and it's more east than north. So exhaustion and weather put it out of reach. Dallas looked MISERABLE today! Lightning galore! What are you doing in Terrell? 4w
  •   socalairpirate Haha, today?- checkin out the British Flight Training museum at TRL. Seriously though, the owners had business to do up here. MonetMonett MO tomorrow. Then back to AZ 4w

n350sl Lunch of Wendy's and flight training. I'd say that makes for a pretty good day! #avgeek #teenagepilot 4w
  •   n350sl @flyawayjay it sure was! 4w
  •   n350sl @mayorlolly that. Is. Awesome! 4w
  •   n350sl @13chase you had to go all the way to the next city to get Wendy's! I guess it's something you take for granted when they're everywhere that's awesome! We hit the self proclaimed "BBQ Capitol of Texas" in Lockhart, but didn't grab any there! 4w
  •   piperj3cub Yum-yum pre-flight lunch. 😎 4w
  •   piperj3cub Ahhh...never mind the angry face. Sorry 4w
  •   n350sl @piperj3cub haha! Absolutely! Flying on an empty stomach sucks because you can't concentrate! 4w
  •   13chase @n350sl hahaha! That's the best part- we had a Wendy's across the street from the FBO at my home airport! Lol! 4w
  •   n350sl @13chase that is epic!!! Love it! 4w

n350sl It's kinda hard to believe that I'm allowed to rent and fly this airplane to any airport in the country, yet, I can't rent a car at all! #avgeek #gubment #privatepilot #teenagepilot #17pilot #skychicken #skyhawk 1mon
  •   c17jamie Congrats dude!! Awesome! 1mon
  •   that55upilot Very nice! :) That's indeed awesome. 1mon
  •   cirruspilot618 Where is your first flight going to be and who are you going to take? @n350sl 1mon
  •   n350sl @cirruspilot618 the plan is to fly to lakeway TX from KAUS with my dad, then take my grandparents flying from Lakeway! 1mon
  •   n350sl @wings_c7 it's insanity! I once read a hilarious quote from a B-52 captain during the Cold War, he said "Uncle Sam trusts me to captain a multimillion dollar jet with nuclear weapons, but my parents don't trust me to drive the family car!" 1mon
  •   rodneyalbert Well, except for the slight (but temporary) glitch re driving a car, I expect you're going to have a pretty incredible life. You're certainly off to a great start! 1mon
  •   wings_c7 Lol that's hilarious 1mon
  •   clear_prop I tried rent a car from Enterprise few wks ago....they refused me cause i had an out of state lic..... 1mon

n350sl It's been a long time coming, 10 years ago I took my first small airplane flight, it was at Austin academy. 9 years ago my dad started his training. 8 years ago, my dad got his private pilots license about 7 years ago. 2 years ago I started my flight training. 1 year ago I soloed an airplane for the very first time, on my 16th birthday. 2 months ago, I finished my solo cross country. Today, hopefully, I will have my private pilots license. I'm headed out to the airport soon, and I'm feeling good. Let's do this! #teenPilot #teenagePilot #17 #17pilot #avgeek #privatePilot #checkride 1mon

n350sl Hello Dayton! Thanks for your incredible customs agent! (They actually had a soul!!) the winds today are - unfortunately- going to be bad to very bad headwinds from about 15 KTS on the nose to 30 KTS on the nose! Departing for KPBF (pine bluff) near Little rock shortly! Just filing a flight plan and off we go! #avgeek #columbia350 #pilot #teenagepilot 2mon
  •   n350sl @dgabalski @bradhayes I'll be back next month! And the month after! I'll let y'all know! 2mon
  •   brandotaylorharris Let's go flying! I'm for sure going to get my pilots license by the end of summer 2mon
  •   bradhayes @n350sl Dude, you're at the wrong FBO! Lol you need to hit up Wright Bros. next time! Let me know & we'll get together. @dgabalski 2mon
  •   bradhayes @planesofportland Thx for the heads up my friend 2mon
  •   n350sl @bradhayes you're on! I'll let you know when we pass through KDAY again. It's our customs meeting place of choice! 2mon
  •   n350sl @troutfiend where are ya at? 2mon
  •   n350sl @bradhayes we'll be around next month, maybe back through DAY early July! I'll let you know when it gets nearer! 2mon
  •   brandotaylorharris I go to college at msu in springfield mo. Graduating in December. Been working on studying ground school in my free time for the last year or so. But being a college senior, I already have a full plate of studies, I get done with finals on Wednesday, and will strictly be studying aviation all summer. My girlfriends father owns a flight school in town and I already have about 40 hours logged, just really need to buck up and solo and get my checkride done. 2mon

n350sl Sudbury Aviation's big beautiful beaver! #avgeek #beaver #DHC #DHCbeaver #teenagepilot 2mon
  •   texas_pilot So sick! You going to fly it? 2mon
  •   n350sl @texas_pilot eventually! Not this year though! Sat in her talking to the school owner, fiddled with the flaps and all of the systems. This year will be the 172 on floats, then (maybe) this year the 185 on floats. Eventually we may get the opportunity to fly the beav though! 2mon
  •   texas_pilot That's cool man! I want my seaplane rating so bad. I'll get around to it one day! 2mon
  •   pilotdarcy Nice 2mon

n350sl Guess the aircraft!! #avgeek #teenagepilot #guessTheAirplane 2mon
  •   vintage_skies I know that wing anywhere ;) 2mon
  •   ryantheflyinguy That's a beaver! 2mon
  •   frankd247 Beaver for sure! @n350sl 2mon
  •   n350sl @vintage_skies checked out Sudbury Aviation today! They say the beaver is just a big lovable bear of an airplane! They said that the buck 80 is actually a more skittish airplane and is more difficult to fly! We'll be back up to do some flying in June! They do the training in a 172 on floats. Basic (and underpowered) bird! But they have a 185 and Beav for more complex training! Apparently the 172 has a climb of about 200-300 FPM on a hot day! 2mon
  •   n350sl @ryantheflyinguy @frankd247 nicely done! It's one of Sudbury Aviation's aircraft! She's incredible! Such a well built airplane! 2mon
  •   vintage_skies @n350sl The beav certainly is a big loveable bear, with a couple of gotchas. The 172 and 185 are way better to learn on, even though they can be a bit more to handle on the step :) 2mon
  •   frankd247 I'm going to post a beaver that is in a Floatplane flight school by my house. For $3,000 you can get your seaplane rating in it. @n350sl 2mon
  •   ryantheflyinguy I had the honor of flying one last summer and it was truly incredible! Its one if my favorite aircraft 2mon
