Awesome Flight bags

Just thought I'd share with you my gratitude for your "Lift" series flight bag.

I recently took part in a flight campaign as part of a scientific investigation into high-altitude atmospheric phenomena. Project PoSSUM (Polar Suborbital Science in the Upper Mesosphere) is studying Noctilucent Clouds which form in excess of 200,000 feet, beyond the stratosphere. Now, naturally, I didn't get quite that high- but tbe project director, a payload operator, and myself as the navigator took a Mooney M20K up to FL180 over Northern Alberta in an attempt to image those clouds. Given the unpressurized cabin, the necessity of wearing extra layers of warm clothing, and the added science equipment in the cabin- it was a bit crowded.

So- the Flight Outfitters Lift bag was exactly the right size for our mission. I was able to fit and store all of my necessary tools from headset to personal locator beacon in it without compromising the integrity of the bag or cluttering an already busy cockpit.

I hope that your company continues to offer additional products in this line. I rarely make expenses for new flight gear, but this bag was exactly what required. I would love to what other practical devices and apparel will carry your logo in the future.

* I've included a photo of the crew and I inflight in the project Mooney

The Weather Never Sleeps Warm Weather Woes - Flight Training

In light of a rough week in Missouri private aviation its always good to review some summer weather considerations. Longer takeoffs, easier stalls, and turbulent weather can push even the most experienced pilots out of their comfort zone and into real danger. Summer's a great time to go places, but remember takeoffs are optional, landings are not.

flighttraining.aopa.org The thunderstorm outlook on a recent summer evening told pilots to watch out if they went flying in the Southeast the next afternoon.

Good Friday!!

We at the airport are in need of some people to donate the use of a tractor and brush hog for about a week. The east side of the runway and the landfill both have grown to about chest high and need to be cut badly. Please let me know if anyone can help in that avenue. Thank you and have a great day.
