Cloudsurfing In N62TB

Saturday was supposed to be CAVU in our neck of the woods. And it was. Sort of. If you went northwest, you couldn't find a cloud. But over the Home Base, there was a thin layer from about 2700 to 3000 MSL.

In other words: Perfect. For. Cloudsurfing.

So that's what we did. After an ILS to KLPR and a hold at DJB in absolutely clear conditions, we headed back to KBJJ for the GPS 28. It's an LPV approach, so we got a chance to see the simulated glideslope. I flew it coupled to the KAP 100 in HDG mode and the STEC-60 in ALT mode. (Still need to see if I can get the STEC-60 to activate in GS mode for a non-ILS approach.) After spotting the runway, we broke off the approach and headed back to the Home Base for the usual white-knuckle landing. :-)

Anyway, filmed it all with the Garmin VIRB, threw it into iMovie, downloaded some royalty-free music, and voila! The latest from our video production studio.  Enjoy!!!
