1st Annual Photo Flight Fiesta

(Air to Air Photography Event)

May 25th at KCFE

We had 9 aircraft and 15 people show up and participate in the Photo Flight Fiesta!  We would have had at least 6 more, but due to a previous weather cancelation on the 18th, these folks had Memorial Day plans (they missed out big time!)

 

 

 

 

We did a formal formation flight lesson and pre-brief in the arrival/departure building at Buffalo Airport (KCFE).  For many this was their first time doing a formation flight.

Nick was our awesome photographer!  He is a professional airshow photographer and parachutist with over 10,000 sky dives under his belt. Photography is his passion and he shoots amazing photos!

Formation Flight Pre-brief

Air to Air Photographer:  Nick Halseth

Photo Ship:  C177RG

The photo ship was our  Cessna Cardinal RG. This aircraft is equipped with a removable side window and no wing strut or landing gear, making it a great air to air photo platform.  It was piloted by James Aarestad, ATP, CFI, CFII, MEI, +10,000 hours.  He has taught and conducted hundreds of formations flights.

We had a fantastic event!
