    Had a great morning flying and lunch with Doug and Bill. Doug schooled me huge on how to fly a P-14, even though it was his first time in one. That dude can flat fly!

    A SUPERIOR pilot, uses his or her SUPERIOR judgement, to stay out of situations which may require the use of their SUPERIOR skills.

    Performance?... Good?... - well, lessee...temp was 83F, Elevation ~2500', T/O distance 97', Landing distance 106'...

    yeah, performance was pretty outstanding!!!

    Special thanks to Steve Bryant (Producer Aircraft, Lake Hood Strip), Shaun Tubbs (Performance Air, Caldwell, ID),
    and of course Doug Keller (el piloto extraordinaire)

    Great landings! Who was the pilot? Is that a flying service?

    Hey Outlaw,

    Those were pretty awesome landings alright... some guy named Brian Burnett... but we just call him Dudley.

    Seems that whenever he flies into Stanley, folks mistake him for an air taxi operator and try to climb into his plane. He's should seriously consider opening up Dudley Air Taxi...

    This brings back some good memories. This one was rebuilt in Anchorage AK about 10 years ago, It performed as good as it looked. - Steve
