A few shots from Instagram: a peek at a plane we might be flying, our latest test pilot, and the office mascotThis has been a busy week for Nflightcam! The launch of our new Solo Hall of Fame program has been met with a lot of excitement, and we couldn't be happier about that. You can read what AOPA had to say in their article Ready for the Solo Hall of Fame? Also we wanted to remind you that there are other ways to keep up with us around the web. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. We just might be posting special deals and insider information there. And this week we finally joined the masses and started using Instagram! This fun photo sharing app for iPhones and Androids is addicting, and a way for people to catch all the behind-the-scenes action from Nflightcam. Our user name is: Nflightcam.

Nflightcam has had several homes in its 2 year history.It began in a hangar in Kansas as a new hobby for Patrick. Then it moved to spare bedrooms (ours' and his brother's), and in the fall of 2011, it finally got its very own official office. A very small office, but still an official office. However, it became clear very quickly that a 300 square foot space was just not big enough. And Patrick's brother wanted his spare bedroom back. So, in July of 2012, Nflightcam got a new home! We just moved across the airport, but we now have a lot of room to make cameras. Even big enough for Macey, our Great Dane mascot, to roam around.
All this extra room is making life much easier around here. We also have been enjoying the grill out back. If you're ever in the neighborhood, stop on by. Matt makes a mean burger.

It's a long story, really. One of those a friend of a friend and all the pieces just fell into place kind of stories. Short version: Patrick is ferrying a Cessna 182 to Kenya over the next few weeks. At the last minute, his friend Jake decided to jump in and join him on the first half of the trip. Obviously, the 182 is a small airplane. This little baby can't quite manage a flight directly across the Atlantic Ocean. So they're hopping up through Canada, Greenland, Iceland, and then into Europe and then down to Africa. Tired just thinking about it? Yeah, me too. Matt, the guy in the far left in the picture above, did a TON of work on the 182 to get it ready. He was kinda glad to see it leave, I think! Patrick and Jake flew together in college and talked a lot about flying some big adventure. It was a long time coming, but they're finally doing it. And YES, they will be filming the trip with (multiple, I'm sure) Nflightcams. What else did you expect? Bye boys. Fly safe. Don't have too much fun without us.

Even though Oshkosh 2012 is still a few months away, we're already gearing up for the big event! The Nflightcam Team will be there and we can't wait to see everyone. One of our camera users will be coming to Oshkosh from quite a distance. New Zealand to be exact! His plane has already started its journey towards Wisconsin. He shared this awesome video of the dismantling process. We're looking forward to seeing more footage from your trip, George! Anyone else getting excited for Oshkosh? We'd love to see you if you're coming!

Hello! My name is Emily and I'm married to Patrick, the owner and creator of Nflightcam. I'm going to be writing about my adventures in learning to fly here at the Nflighcam Blog. Of course, I'll be using Nflightcams to capture the flights. Last week we scheduled a flight lesson nice and early to avoid those pesky winds, and my instructor suggested off handedly that I wear I shirt I didn't care too much about. I may be a new student pilot, but I haven't been married to a pilot for 8 years for nothing. I knew exactly what that meant. Time for a solo flight! Gulp. But even though I was really nervous, it was so much fun! And I'm pretty darn proud of myself too. Of course, it was all captured on an Nflightcam+.
