Today coming back from Club Cherokee Flee Market I got to fly a Pitts Special! Did some rolls and loops! First aerobatics!! And it was with a valid flight instructor!

Did he let you land it? :D

No unfortunately not because you could hardly see in front of you.

What he forgot to tell you is his wonderful boss :D (<--That's Me) got him the ride. Good for you Nate.

You must get some more time in it Nathaniel and learn to land it, hopefully the airport you are flying at will be suitable for a curved approach to the flare which solves the can't see in front of it problem. :D

Everyone should have a Pitts (for aerobatic fun), a Supercub (for STOL Fun), and a Cessna 206 or Piper Archer (or similar for Traveling) in their hanger. You have been 2/3rds bitten!!

I'm 2/3rd there, just waiting for the C185.

...because you could hardly see in front of you.
You said it was a Pitts, right? So what's new?! There isn't a Pitts made that has good visibility to the front. That's part of the "charm" of the airplane! :)

I want the Cub and the 206, but I'll trade the Pitts for a Waco if you don't mind ;)
