Kirby and Team Chambliss arrived Oshkosh on Monday July 29th and departed the following Monday. The Team had a blast connecting with all of our friends and extended aviation family! Kirby hosted an intern this year, Daniel Onofryton, who will begin college at the University of North Dakota as a sophomore . Daniel worked with the Team all week and was surprised with a ride in the two-seat Edge during a scheduled photo shoot. Chambliss comments, “Daniel did a fantastic job! We have a very important responsibility to help the next generation of pilots. It is also a responsibility that I truly enjoy!”
Kirby and the Team would like to thank our sponsors, who make our work possible! We will be waiting with anticipation for AirVenture 2014, only 353 days!
Red Bull Air Force Tandem Paragliding at the AMA National Motocross Championships w. Jen Kenyon. The worlds best Amateur Racers charge hard all week long and we got to see it from the air with GNCC Racings own Jen Kenyon as co-pilot. Thanks to everyone who makes this amazing event happen and congrats to all the racers who made it to Loretta’s.
This is a sighting device, but what would it be used for? Looks funny too! Well, this odd looking device is to assist the aerobatic pilot to fly vertical lines accurately by lining the sight up on the horizon. You would see the sighting device on most competition aerobatic airplanes and airplanes flying aerobatics during air shows. Kirby uses the sight most of the time for reference, except when racing.
Next time you are at an air show, take the time to take a little closer look! See you there!
Kirby and the entire Team had a fantastic time in both New York and Virginia Beach! The weather could have been more cooperative at Jones Beach, but it didn’t stop the fun! We ran into Dusty, from the upcoming movie Airplanes, there was a little time for skydiving and we scored a little beach time too!
