Video: Boeing 777 landing at LAX

For many student pilots, their ultimate idea of fun flying is a job at an airline. Being an airline pilot has its ups and downs, but one thing never gets old: the incredible views from the cockpit. In this week’s video, ride along with an Air France crew as they descend into Los Angeles and land at the busy LAX airport at night. You’ll see everything from the cockpit flows to the stunning lights of the LA basin, plus hear the ATC communications.

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.”
