Night Flying over San Antonio, Texas
Howdy! I'm one step closer to finalizing my private pilot license, this has been a dream of mine all my life. I've got more than enough hours, only need to complete the checkride exam, so wanted to share some photos and videos taken the other night when I went up with my flight instructor to practice towered night landings. Sean, my flight instructor, is a great pilot who is a real joy to fly with. He's calm, relaxed and patient. He instructs out at Boerne Stage Airfield and is also a private pilot, I highly recommend him. I'm currently working on finishing aircraft paint on the Cessna 210 and have others lined up to complete. I'm quoting and scheduling for the new year, please contact Abnavis Aviation if you are looking for a custom aircraft paint or aviation refurbishing.
This plane makes learning all those flight controls and buttons a joke but is a real joy to fly. Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best, no need to complicate.
Getting the shop up and running
Got the ventilation fans installed in the back of the hangar, tools organized and paint guns ready! And my model plane finished... come by the hangar and check it out anytime.
Making the switch
I have worked on automobile restoration since I can remember. I really enjoy very vintage work and making a dull car come back to life. But when I work, I like to uncover all of the flaws so that they can be fixed correctly and the paint will last and last. Sometimes this can be very expensive and not all customers are willing to pay the high price. After years in automotive restoration, detailing and painting and working for other companies I opened my own shop Abnavis Automotive in Helotes, Texas. Then the opportunity came along to get back out in the airfield, a passion I put to the side while I built my shop and put in long hours. I am now able to continue to share my expertise in paint while finishing my private pilot license and paint aircraft. I will continue to custom paint cars but now I have the option to chose only certain projects. I've been working on getting my hangar shop ready to take new clients and it's finally there. Follow me on this journey!
