An Aerobatic Ride near Seattle

Here’s another video that shows a typical aerobatic ride on a beautiful day in Seattle. We’re in the Extra 300L. The maneuvers include aileron rolls, loops, half-Cuban 8s, hammerheads, point rolls, slow rolls, vertical rolls, and inverted flight. The video also shows a typical approach and landing in the Extra 300L.


Aerobatics—As Seen from Seat 1A

The aerobatics season in Seattle has returned, and Tuesday I gave an aerobatic ride. It was gorgeous day.

I set up a GoPro to look out at the left wing to capture the scenery as I demoed a series of basic maneuvers. This is the view you’d have from a window seat on an airliner–if airliners did aerobatics.

Enjoy the ride. More at my YouTube channel, BruceAirFlying.

Aerobatic Ride with Cockpit Audio

I gave an aerobatic ride out of KBFI yesterday in Seattle to one of the Seafair boosters.

It was a spectacular day to fly, and this hop gave me a chance to test a cable/adapter that feeds cockpit audio to my GoPro. (As you’ll see, my passenger brought his own GoPro.) The cable should work with any device that has a 3.5mm audio input, making it a handy accessory if you want to record cockpit audio.

If you use a GoPro, you may want to get the “skeleton housing,” which has openings in the sides that allow easy connections to the audio input, USB, and other ports. You can also remove and insert SD cards without opening the case.
