We had a cylinder changed on one of our Diamond Eclipses (aka Katana) and had to run it for an hour. My mechanic is working on his private pilot certificate and saw this as an opportunity get some flight instruction and go poke some holes in the sky. I snapped a few pictures as we went along. He's the kind of student that makes my job easy.
