    As some of you know, I recently moved to California to follow my dream of working in aviation. While working to obtain my A&P certificate, I have been offered the opportunity to fly in an Aermacchi MB-326. This 1970s aircraft is used to teach upset recognition and recovery training. This flight was a post annual FCF (Functional Check Flight) before returning to service. During the flight, we burned about $1000 worth of jet fuel, tested stalls, cabin pressure up to 25k feet, negative G FOD check, and also had some fun with loops, rolls, spins, tailslides, and some mock dog fighting. I'd like to thank the EAA 582 and TABLSACI for inspiring me and getting me involved in aviation. Airplanes are cool.

    Kevin,  that looks like a sweet ride.  Next time I come out there I want you to give me a ride in it.  I wonder if there is anything happening out in the desert, as far as aviation goes, today?  I heard rumors.
