My girlfriend washes the Lancair 360, then we fly to Flagler Airport in our Lancair IV-P for breakfast. Landing at 3:40.
We live in Spruce Creek Fly-In Community – where most homes have attached hangars! I’ve been a pilot for years and we have 2 airplanes in our hangar that we like to fly around Florida. I spent 8 years building my Lancair 375 on my own and my girlfriend calls it my “other girlfriend” 😂. We also recently purchased a Lancair IV-P . We needed more speed, more luggage space and we needed A/C. Can’t say enough good things about this airplane.
Most Saturdays, along with the other Lancair pilots in the neighborhood, we fly to breakfast. Since COVID-19 has most of the airport restaurants closed or with limited seating capacity, we haven’t been flying as much. Feeling a little couped up in the house, we decided we needed to get out and flew the new plane to Flagler airport. I packed a picnic breakfast, and we watched other planes practice touch-and-gos. After breakfast and some photo ops, we flew back to Spruce Creek (7FL6). Nailed the landing…
