 LCOOL Fly Drive Weekend - 31 Mar to 1 Apr 07

Like many, 4WDing is not my only passion, I love flying. I am fortunate enough to have a friend who is a pilot, and not of just any aircraft, he flies the very aerobatic Pitts Special and aerobatics is his speciality.

He’s also a keen 4WDer with a very well set up 100 Series Land Cruiser. I’ve asked him if he would take a few 4WDers up for a ride in the Pitts Special and do aeros with them if I organised everything, he agreed. I’m looking at combining this with a drive up to the Garden of Stone near Lithgow for an overnighter and a play in our 4WDs the following day.

Here’s the web page for the Pitts ride, note the “normal” price.

I have negotiated a one time only LCOOL price of $160.

There are a couple of video cameras located on and in the aircraft, if you want a DVD of yourself in the Pitts Special doing aeros, it cost him a further $30 to produce the DVD.

They also have a Tiger Moth if anyone is interested in the slow lane.
