What’s in your flight bag, episode 3

0

In this series, we ask the pilots at Sporty’s what gear they carry when they go flying. While every pilot’s flight bag is unique, some common principles apply to everyone: carry enough to be prepared but not too much so that you’re weighed down with unnecessary junk. This episode features Doug Ranly, a private pilot and Sporty’s Catalog Manager.

Doug grew up off the end of a runway and has wanted to fly before he could ride a bike. As the catalog manager for Sporty's Pilot Shop, he takes pride in developing products that make flying easier for pilots. After spending a short time in the military including a year in Iraq, his standards are abnormally high for pilot products. A private pilot with an instrument rating, he enjoys small prop planes more than any jet. You'll normally find him in a Cessna 172 or Skycatcher while on a mission to find the finest biscuits and gravy at an airport cafe.
