Video from my Flying Lesson
Thursday, July 22, 2010

For the last few months, I'd been hearing a lot about a new POV camera made by GoPro called HD Hero. It's a small camera that can be mounted pretty much anywhere to shoot video for surfing, skydiving, motorsports, and skiing etc.

So yesterday I broke down and bought one then took it with me to my flight lesson yesterday evening. I mounted it to the back window of the plane and shot 40 minutes of video before the suction cup popped off and the camera fell to the floor. Luckily it was inside the plane.

Next time I'll do a better job to mount it. But for now, enjoy the show.

In The Back Seat of My Flight Lesson - July 21, 2010 from Michael Laverdiere on Vimeo.

Recorded with my new GoPro HD Hero camera mounted in the back seat of Cessna 172P C-FNJB during one of my flight lessons.

It's basically one camera shot for the whole 7 minutes...well almost.

It shows part of our trip from Boundary Bay Airport (Delta, BC, Canada) to Glen Valley training area (Langley, BC, Canada) with Koh. He isn't my regular flight instructor but he stepped in so I could go up because my regular instructor Kristy couldn't fly a because of an injury.

Recorded on the evening of July 21, 2010.
