Cut Off In The Traffic Pattern

Flying doesn’t always go as planned. Last week you enjoyed the lap around the pattern in the J3 Cub with my good friend Jamie Beckett what you didn’t see is the footage from the second lap around the pattern where we have an interesting situation with a pilot who’s first radio call was a right base for the runway we were on the upwind for! I had our team here remove the other pilots tail number out of respect for them but it goes to show you why you need to always be ready for the unexpected at pilot controlled airports. Enjoy the video – Jason I’ve been doing a lot of cub flying and many of you have asked if you could purchase one of our “cub lightning bolt” MzeroA shirts. So I’ve decided to do a very limited run of them. The shirt will only be available until this Sunday making it a true limited edition. So if you want a SUPER SOFT limited edition MzeroA Piper Cub shirt CLICK HERE or Click the image to the... read more

Stick and Rudder Flying

Aviation is a humbling experience. No matter how much experience you have it will continue to challenge you whether you’re ready or not. Thats what flying a tail dragger was like for me. I may be a tailwheel endorsed pilot but that was 6 years ago! Flying a tailwheel teaches you true stick and rudder skills. Fly along with myself and AOPA “You Can Fly Ambassador” Jamie Beckett for a landing that I would call “a bit too exciting” I was very thankful to have Jamie there as my instructor. Because even a flight instructor needs a flight... read more

Welcome Home N512R

Longtime MzeroA.com fans will remember N512R. It’s really the plane that started it all. What you may not remember is about 6 years ago I had to sell her as it really became a drag on the wallet and as a newly married couple Ashley and I just couldn’t afford to keep her. Now years later we tracked down N512R and found her almost just like we left her. Still very much in need of some TLC but ready to give it to her and welcome her back into the... read more
