Ready For A Little Adventure???

NFlightCam Crew Is Off On A Caribbean Expedition

While most of us are still trying to digest leftovers, a good friend of ANN is off on a serious adventure. Patrick Carter and the rest of the www.AdventurePilots.com crew departed KMFE on an adventure through the Caribbean in a Cessna 180.

The jaunt is crewed by Patrick Carter and Aaron Stahl. Patrick brings over 5,000 hours of flight experience, in everything from large business jets to LSAs. Patrick also works full-time as a production test pilot for a major manufacturer and earned an associate membership in the prestigious Society of Experimental Test Pilots at the age of 25. At 23 Patrick was also the youngest flight instructor to earn the designation of Master Aerobatic Flight Instructor with International Aerobatic Club. Patrick will be acting as the Chief Pilot for the trip.

Aaron Stahl is an adventurer and seasoned traveler. At the age of 16 he achieved the rank of Eagle Scout while also participating in all three of the Boy Scout High Adventure Bases. He has since traveled to over 25 countries on 5 continents. Some of his adventures include; circumnavigating the globe on Semester at Sea, running with the bulls in Spain, chasing and filming tornados in Oklahoma, hearing Fidel Castro speak in Cuba, motorcycle road tripping across Vietnam, and seeing the Big 5 in Africa. He is also a private pilot and aspiring aerobatic pilot under Patrick’s tutelage.

To document the trip properly, they enlisted the skills of Alex Kent, an expert photographer with nearly a decade of experience. He is a Certified Photographic Consultant from the Photography Marketing Association and has been instructing photography workshops since 2006 for Bedford Camera & Video.

The entire adventure will be captured with the NFlightCam mini-cams we've grown so fond of -- so we're looking for some SERIOUS vids when they return. The team will be visiting the following countries in the next 14 days: Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia, Aruba, Grenada, St Kitts/ Nevis, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and the Bahamas.

The goal of the trip is to experience an epic adventure and share it with the word in first person with the NFlightCam and Contour wearable video cameras.
