Vortex smoke rings

Studying principles of flight at the moment and vortices, then i came across this video thought it would be rude not to share it.

Hi alphalaura,

Thanks for the heads up. Dont know if you saw in the other thread "Dream Bus". I put down a pitts special s2 as my dream aircraft. I will most certainly have to check that out. Now im even more excited.

Hi Flyer1

I havent fully planned the trip yet. The general opinion seems to be head to florida. For my hour building i hope to do some cross country hours, but to break this up an aerobatics course would be great. Any ideas?

For me it has to be the one and only pitts special.

It would have to be the s2 so u can bring a passenger along as well, maybe to scare them maybe not.

Just have to learn aerobatics 1st and win the lotto or start saving now.

Something to work towards though.

Forced Landing

Check out this video. The pilot has multiple engine failures and has to execute a very quick forced landing. If this ever happened me i hope this is how it would finish.

Waterford Aero club you also have to pay an additional 175 annual membership. Plus if you dont live in Waterford you also need to incur the expense of travel and time. We all know the weather plays a huge roll, so to do these 100 hours you might be hanging around for a long time in Irealnd. Where as...

One can submit flight plans by email. I was not aware of this.

Anyone want to shed some more light on this?

Like is there a template to be used etc...?
