  2. Hi Peter

    Looks like great fun.

    Reminds me of the time the Mrs and I did a fixed wing flight over the Grand Canyon and I got my first introduction to weight and balance calculations.

    We had an early start at the airport in Las Vegas where we met our Pilot. He’d obviously had many years of performing detailed W&B calculations and as he swaggered up to the aircraft, he turned to our fellow passengers – two ‘average sized’ American’s, and said “you two, get in the front, or we’ll never get this thing off the runway!”

    You’re right about it being an amazing experience, especially as you fly over the rim of the canyon. I recall our accompanying music was Ride of the Valkyries.
