Dec 16th 2009 11:42AM so many things to film - skiing powder in the Wasatch; riding on my recumbent bike; view out the window f ying light aircraft around the mountains in the west; kids POV of piano playing: strap it to a dog for an unusual POV; whilst driving to document the idiots out there running red lights.

Please be careful, and fully check your facts when writing about aviation.
A quick look at the plane website indicates that the plane is a LIGHT SPORT AIRCRAFT. Important distinction compared to a "Light Airplane" as referred to in the article.
As i understand the rules, its not so much the plane and its equipment, but rather the training the pilot gets that will determine if they allow flight at night or to travel to airports with a control tower.
Be careful which lake you choose to fly from. Lots of state and fed agencies regulate the operation of seaplanes. Just because you can land and takeoff on water does not mean you can do so anywhere, anytime.

Vic Bitter, Coopers and Cascade are the preferred malt beverages. very important when you are spending 12-15 hours trapped in a seat.
Nov 26th 2008 7:26PM That was not a "Crash Landing", as stated by Scott in his opening line!
Fortunately he redeems himself with the other comments - an excellent job by the pilot.
