Friday Photo: backcountry flying in a Super Cub

When Jody Kochansky signed up for a course at McCall Mountain Canyon Flying School in Idaho, he knew he would learn a lot. And learn he did. As he says, “I’m a better pilot for the experience!” Along the way, he captured this beautiful backcountry scene, with Loon Creek winding its way through the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. The picture is made complete by the yellow Super Cub cowl.

Friday Photo: Manhattan over the nose

New York has one of the most famous skylines in the world, and there’s no better way to see it than from the cockpit of an airplane. Jody Kochansky was lucky enough to get a view of Manhattan from his Cirrus SR-20 on a perfectly clear day, and he shares it in this week’s Friday Photo.
