(NOTE: to be clear, this flight flight was filmed and mostly edited before the accident in March 2018, so only a small amount of context could be added to this episode due to the ongoing NTSB investigation.
We are planning a detailed follow up to discuss changes in regs and/or SOPs as a result of the findings of the investigation.
Please stand by for that.

I am a "weekend warrior" private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience - I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve.... Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
