Leg Notes:
Next we swapped in Barny for the same ride. He wasn't too sure about jumping in through the luggage door, but he did so with a bit of coaxing, and we were off. Both of these landings were better :-) and Barny equally had no problems. (David Thorburn-Gundlach)

Leg Notes:
Finally, it was time to put BOTH of them back there and see how they did. This puts us pretty close to the rear weight limit, and I do believe that I could distinctly feel Penny being tail heavy (although still only about 3/4 of the way to full aft CG; how must it feel when she's actually at the limit?!?); the landings were still good, but I felt better carrying in a little bit of extra speed just to be sure. Meanwhile, the dogs, now having to split Quin's attention, started looking out the window instead, still completely at ease with the plane ride. Woo hoo! A delightful and successful test :-) (David Thorburn-Gundlach)

Leg Notes:
First a turn around the pattern to make sure I'm not too rusty... My crosswind takeoff wasn't perfect, but nice enough, and I even stayed ahead of our little hot rod, leveling at TPA during (yeah :-) my turn to downwind. The rest of the pattern was smooth, and I elected to come in with no flaps and some extra speed because of the chop, which made for a nice landing but a long rollout. Laura suggested that 10 degrees wasn't bad, so I can try that next time. Anyway, the girls were comfortable, and it was time to go off and play. (David Thorburn-Gundlach)

Leg Notes:
Off we went for some maneuvering practice and more acclimitization, becuase the order of the day was dives and I wanted to make sure that everyone was comfortable. I'm out of steep turn practice, for sure; my first was a little sloppy but level, but when I rolled right to go the other way I found myself losing altitude. Gaaah! Stopped, leveled, and tried again, and kept it nice and smooth this time, so it *can* be done, but urgh :-/
After confirming that all were ready, dive number one was a gentle blip (aka 'small') to get them started. They loved it and wanted more, so number two was a stiff push (aka 'large') that got us a tad of zero gee and LOTS of squealing :-) but a desire to back off a bit. Number three was back to small, and they had their breath back again. We headed over toward Pickens, with an in-between (aka 'medium') dive along the way, to swap seats since Katy had the front for this half.
I was set up a little too close for downwind, having just followed the highway in, by the time I settled at pattern altitude, so I moved over and then settled in for final. I dropped a little quickly over the threshold and had to blip it, so I floated a bit to a smooth landing but had to roll out all the way to the end after missing the early taxiway. Ah, well.
