Flying With The Aero Experience: Piper Cherokee In the Pattern

By Carmelo Turdo
This edition of Flying With The Aero Experience takes us back to June of 2012 in a Piper Cherokee flown by Paul Voorhees of Big River Aviation. We flew a few patterns around St. Louis Downtown Airport, passing by the control tower to Runway 5. After takeoff, a right standard pattern brought us over the Jet Aviation terminal and surrounding areas on the way back to the runway for touch-and gos. We eventually taxied back to the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum historic Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2 before securing the aircraft in its hangar later. Here are some composite views of the flight from the cockpit and the aircraft taking off on a flight just prior to this one.
