Just bought a new Canon 10-22 lens on my most recent trip to St Thomas. Tried it out on the flight back. Click pictures for larger version.

#1 - Hawker 850XP. Settled in during cruise at 40,000 feet, doing mach .76 (~430 nm/hr), about 300 miles off the coast of Wilmington, NC

#2 - Cirrus SR-22 cockpit. Being vectored by ATC for approach into Norfolk, VA. On the left is Hampton Roads/Newport News, on the right is Norfolk. You can see Naval Air Station Norfolk right along the coast on the right, with the Interstate 64 tunnel dead ahead. You can just catch a glimpse of Langley AFB on the left side, home of the nations first fleet of F-22 Raptor fighters.

#3 - The jet parked in the hangar after the trip back from St Thomas.

Nice shots, that SR-22 is a sweet little plane. My sister is a flight instructor in Miami and flys them. Thanks for sharing.

Nice set and not something one usually sees now, long gone are the days of passengers being allowed into/view from the flightdeck :(

Oh, one thing that does make me smile is the ignition keys visible, just like any car :lol:


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

Thanks

Corporate Aviation is the sector in which I currently fly. The aircraft are owned by a private company and they employ me to fly them, along with a co pilot in the case of the Hawker jet. We transport the executives for business meetings to further expand and strengthen their company.

Unfortunately, this sector of aviation is coming under a lot of fire by Congress and the general public recently. I would be more than happy to entertain questions about the usefulness of corporate aircraft and clear up any misconceptions, via private message of course ;).
