2017 flying
I got your friend request on Facebook and added you today. Our flying is footlaunch truck towing using a static tow rig on roads in the Tipton and Sheridan area. So closer to you than to me. During the spring and fall is when we do most of our towing because of crops in the fields. Of course if it is beans and not corn lining the fields we can tow pretty much all summer too, but have to do our best to land back on the road. I think you got here at a good time as most of the roads we use should have beans in the rotation this year. Static towing is very similar to scooter towing but quite a bit gentler, since we are towing with polypropylene which has more stretch than the spectra on a scooter tow. I think the transition should be pretty easy for you. All 3 of the regular pilots are flying Falcon 195's so you'll fit right in. A lot of times we make the fly/no fly call on kinda short notice which is sort of difficult for some, but it's the nature of the weather here, or anywhere when flying. Welcome! It will be good to have another more experienced pilot in the fold! I'll definitely give you a call the next time we go out so you can come out and check out our system and meet us and us you. Like I said before, looking forward to meeting you!
