Another nosecam video.
On Saturday, I spent a good portion of the day flying between Martin Scott Winery in East Wenatchee, WA and Malaga Springs Winery in Malaga, WA. I use my helicopter to offer wine-tasting tours for part of the summer season. These are just two of the four (so far) wineries that have suitable landing zones for me and encourage me to bring people there.
As shown in the map below, the two wineries are on opposite sides of the Columbia River. To drive from one to the other, it’s 12.5 miles and will take (according to Google Maps) about 31 minutes. Malaga Springs is a bit tough to find and the last 1.4 miles is on a gravel road. I drove to it just the other day and was convinced I was going the wrong way when I spotted a winery sign that said “Keep the Faith” and encouraged me to continue on my way.
By helicopter, however, it takes less than 2.5 minutes on a direct flight across the river.
Yesterday, I flew nine people from Martin Scott to Malaga Springs and back. For some of those flights, I had my GoPro “nosecam” set up and turned on. Since it’s been so long since I shared a “nosecam” video, I threw one together Saturday night and uploaded it Sunday morning. Here it is:
