Experience A Discovery Flight in the Cessna Skycatcher at Air Associates of Missouri

By Carmelo Turdo
The Aero Experience has teamed up with Air Associates of Missouri to showcase their C162 Skycatcher, Cessna's entry into the Light Sport aircraft category.  The Aero Experience Founder Carmelo Turdo took a Discovery Flight yesterday with New CFI of the Year Rich Franzer in the Skycatcher over the Chesterfield Valley, and you can experience the flight along with us through a series of upcoming posts.  During the flight, we found that the combination of a natural flying coach like CFI Rich Franzer and a solid performing and easy to fly aircraft like the Skycatcher is a real winner.  Check back often for future posts with details of the flight, and be sure to visit Air Associates of Missouri this Saturday for Demo Day!

Here are some views of the flight:
