Snowbirds in Summerside

As somebody new to this hobby, It never ceases to amaze me the interest it can generate in others. Last night I attended a Meet and Greet with the Snowbirds, who are here in Summerside PEI along with a CF-18 for a mini-airshow over the harbour. I attended in my role as supply officer and RC program coordinator for our local Air Cadet squadron, so I had one of the squadron's 2 Nexstars on static display.

I came prepared with some questions for the pilots and ground crews, but I never did get a chance to ask them. The Snowbirds were too busy asking me about the model and our RC program. As it turns out, many of the team members were once Cadets themselves and thought our RC activities are a great way to get some of the younger kids interested in aviation.

Looking at the event in hindsight, I just wish I had thought to take a computer and set up the Realflight sim. Would have been interesting to see how well these guys could manage their first time out!

Haha! Snowbird pilots on Real Flight!?

That would have been a flight to record for the ages! haha. What a great conversation piece that would have been.

Set them up with a 3D foamie indoors and see what they could do!
