Happy Pilot

A Happy Pilot

The Citabria shown above is the airplane that I have enjoyed so many hours aloft. Lots of good times and a couple of lessons. Although it is an aerobatic airplane I use it for mostly for the enjoyment of flying. I take it camping to converse with other pilots. For quite a few years now I have participated in fly-in's in Western Montana helping to maintain runways. I also like to participate in the Young Eagles flights. There is nothing like seeing the excitment in a young kids face when I'm flying.

Below are some photos that I like. Don't ask me why. It is just part of the things I've seen and want to share.
