Video from last weekend

Jeff Ater and his daughter Alyssa visited us last weekend. Alyssa was doing some training while Jeff was getting some flying in. It was a beautiful weekend with buttery smooth conditions on Sunday and Monday. Jeff posted this incredible video from his flight on Monday. FYI…the video was shot on the Go Pro Hero, a new camera that we have available at the shop for $189 (okay, a little shameless self promotion, but it was a beautiful day and some great footage.
