Back to basics in a new Airhauler Startup.

 

Just a few snaps from some of the first flights hauling either a small cargo or a fat Pax.

 

Home base. Sonoma Skypark.

Returning to Sonoma from a job to Calistoga.

Hauling something or other to Half Moon Bay from Sonoma.

Taking a maxed out airframe with a rich skinny pax and his tiny cargo to Winnemucca, NV from Sonoma, Ca...a Long Haul:

Passing over Donner Lake...at 9,000 ft...about as high as it comfortably flies without trimming fuel so far back an accidental bump will cut the fuel...and it is bumpy over the mountains as my passenger keeps reminding me...

Arriving at Winnemucca. Pax was grumbly and only gave 63% rep for the 'uncomfortable ride'...what did he expect booking a C-152II for a Sierra Crossing...moron. :( Regardless...I got the 5 grand for his tiny cargo...F his reputation.

Thanks for the comments folks. This is JF's new 152...quite a fun little thing. It's surprising how fun "Basic" can be especially in Air hauler...running a fleet of Jumbos sure brings in the bucks, but sometimes I just enjoy squeezing margins out of tiny birds as a nice change of pace.
