    Was that from yesterday? I took my student into BWI to introduce him to the ADIZ and class B. We got out just before it reached the field. Didn't help that we had to taxi all around the deice ramp so that we could receive ground ctl on our radio.

    Thunderstorm season is here!

    It looked dark to the west.


    The tops were in the mid forties when I got my briefing, at that piont it was still developing.


    The rest of the flight was beautiful!


    From about 50 miles south, I was at 10,000'.



    In a (very) slow climb to 210.


    New airplanes seem to always break.


    Count the planes


    Your captain for the day


    That's all,

    Alex.

    I'm almost 6'2 and big frammed, hes 5'6 and scrawny, this is one thing that my horrible fastfood intake hasn't caused.

    At any rate, its easy for you to say. I don't have the whole Austrilian outback to sprint across.

    Great shots! I really want to try the Katana, but my instructor thinks theres too much of a size difference between us. Damn center of gravity.
    well then put your ass on a diet

    Did a cross country from BWI-WWD-BWI the other day and took a few pictures on the way.

    About to do our runup on the deicing pad at BWI


    Taxiing onto 33R


    View of the general aviation ramp during climb out


    Looking back at BWI during our turnout to the east


    Still climbing


    Climbing over the Chesapeake Bay


    Eastern shore of Maryland


    Climbing as we reach the Delaware bay to reduce our chances of having to swim in case our engine quits


    Cape May, New Jersey


    A crappy closeup of the lighthouse after we stopped at KWWD and refueled


    The sun finally decided to make an appearance


    Back over Delaware


    I need a fisheye lens


    Dover AFB from 4,500ft


    Looking towards Baltimore and the Key Bridge


    Looking towards Baltimore while on final approach


    Final approach to runway 33R where my student made the absolute best landing I have ever seen in my life. His instructor must be awesome

    Speaking of cross country flights, what defines one? Taking off and landing at a different airport (+the FAA's specific mileage requirements for specific license requirements)?

    Yep, if you're a private or commercial pilot a cross country is any time you use some sort of navigation to get to (and land at) an airport different from the one you departed from.

    It is different however if you are a student pilot or building time for an ATP. For a student, a cross country needs to be at least 50nm from the departure airport. For those going for their ATP there is no need to land at another airport. They found that they had many military pilots (tankers an bombers mostly) who would fly half way across the world, drop their bombs or dispense their fuel, turn around and come back, yet they couldn't log it as a cross country because they didn't land anywhere else.

    Here are a few more pictures I've taken in the last few days. Unfortunately they were with my crappy cellphone camera, but better than nothing.


    Baltimore's Inner Harbor while being vectored to land on runway 15R after a cross country to KGED (sorry I didn't stop Alex, was running late for my next flight), and KOXB.

    The University of Delaware while flying from ILG to BWI.


    I can see my house from here!



    I need to bring my real camera on my next cross country flight...cell cameras suck

    Joe,

    That brown pickup in the OC terminal photo belongs to my old boss!

    Here are a few of mine from the past month or so.

    Two hours left with only a camera bag and some clouds to keep me company!


    On the way home from picking up the airplane in Vero Beach. Piper even threw in a free jacket with the airplane purchase


    Another fun day! We had a 140 knot head wind at 27,000 feet. I guess it could have been worse.


    The brefier said it would be VFR all day!


    My front seat student is lost in space, and.....well...I have no clue what the backseat kid is doing!


    I will post a few more later,

    Alex.

    Very cool. The first one looks like a rendering of the dreamliner.

    Those clouds look bumpy . I really like your shot of Fuji as I have once climbed to the top (but never again). Good stuff.
