In this video, you get to ride in the pilot’s seat of a stunning P-51C with famed warbird pilot Kermit Weeks. Follow along from the pilot’s perspective as he takes off on a grass runway, completes a low pass and returns for landing. Stick and rudder flying? It doesn’t get any better than this.

John knows how lucky he is to go to work every day at an airport. As Vice President of Sporty’s Pilot Shop’s Catalog Division, he says, “I get to hang around airplanes all the time, flying regularly and testing new products for the catalog.” Coming from an aviation family, John grew up in the back of small airplanes and learned to fly as a teenager. Ever since, he has been hooked on anything with wings and regularly flies a Citabria, a Pilatus PC-12 and a Robinson R44 helicopter. Despite his love of low and slow flight, John says, “I love the challenge of IFR flying in the system. Seeing the runway lights as you break out on approach is a thrill.”
