Fog

eg: stopmotion, new-york, street
Thick fog over Eagle Nest Lake, near Taos, New Mexico. The lake is located at 8,200 feet. Few of us flew around over the morning fog hanging above the lake.

    Wow henry just magical. I love clouds and music. Seems to me that nature and solitude always knows when you have your cameras on ? After flying plains we had nothing but thick smoke and tben solid rain and it snowed hard tonight . So the only flying i get to do is watching your movies. Thanks my friend

    Above the clouds .... my favorite place to be, it always moves me, the beauty and how incredible our world can be, how lucky we are to visit on our terms. Another great video Henry, thank you.

    No Jim VFR is Visual Flight Rules.A visual reference to the ground at all times....
  • Gregg Ludwig
    by Gregg Ludwig 2 months ago
    VFR, of course does not require a visual reference to the ground at all times. See 91.155 for VFR requirements. Most trike pilots fly as Sport Pilots where 61.315 does require visual reference to the ground at all times (for Sport Pilots)

    Greg I just read the reference you stated 91.155. It is made clear visual reference to the ground has to be maintained always.

    This forum can sometimes offer a learning experience. Andy, I don't see that at 91.155 that visual reference to the ground has to be maintained always. We know it does as a Sport Pilot. Can you copy/paste the requirement for visual reference to the ground? Thanks

    It's a guy ALONE in his craft making safety judgments on his flying, you are seeing edited footage taken from different angles of view from the pilots eye view. GOOD GRIEF. Keep smiling Henry, some folks have nothing to do in life but pick holes.

    61.315

    (c) You may not act as pilot in command of a light-sport aircraft:
    (13) Without visual reference to the surface.

    He does has visual reference to the surface. He knows which way is up by the ring of mountains on the horizon.

    Great video Henry ! ! !

    ground:
    ɡround/noun: ground; plural noun: grounds
    1.
    the solid surface of the earth.

    It's all over this video...above and below. I don't see what the argument is all about.

    Below 1,200 AGL you only need to stay "clear of clouds" so It looks like he is low enough to be legal.

    Few month ago I saw a video of guy skimming the clouds even closer like this at regular altitude, I made a comment on it if he realized how illegal and self-incriminating this was . The video disappeared promptly.

    Phillip: I'm not picking holes, just an observation as in your reply (good grief) guess too much Charlie Brown, lol... I do not give a rats ass where or when Henry flies. At night in the middle of a hurricane or thunderstorm, seriously I don't give a $hit. We all fly to have fun, thats it. Just a point was made regarding VFR so I thought you must see whats below you in case of an engine out. That's it, as stated I don't care! I would fly were Henry is also, looks like a great view. Andy

    Thanks for your comments guys. I knew that most of the part under the fog was lake water. So, ground reference was not so important even for an engine quit scenario. What I needed was the altitude over the fog to glide back to the ground, which was located at the edge of the fog. That's why I flew pretty high over the fog. I think I flew about 20 minutes over the fog. I admit that I had few minutes out of that 20 that I could not reach the ground. I decided It was a small risk I could take in order to capture the beauty of nature.

    Actually there is nothing wrong with trike on top over fog. No different than an airplane. Done it plenty of times. Most memorable was getting out of Los Angeles flying north over the mountains onto the Central Valley where it was clear.

    Beautiful, Henry - as always.

    I'm always a little late to these discussions.... but I want to jump in on the purposely vague language several of you mention...

    61.315...(c) You may not act as pilot in command of a light-sport aircraft:...(13) Without visual reference to the surface.

    It does not say..."visual reference to the surface....below the aircraft". If we can see land anywhere and still find a way back down around the clouds without breaking VFR minimums to do it, I think we are legal. Even to the extent that we can fly above clouds with a mountain in view miles away.

    Ok now this will be fun.....

    I'm just curious but how many thousand hours does Henry Trikelife have in his logbook? Must be a bunch!!!
  • PHILIP QUANTRILL
    by PHILIP QUANTRILL 2 months ago
    Andy, too much Charlie Brown? silly you, Danger Mouse of course, in desperation he says "good grief, Penfold". Flying above the clouds is in my limited opinion, one of lifes great pleasures.
  • Bryan Tuffnell

    Mine too, Philip. Of course it can be hairy if the engine stops, but some things in life are worth a small risk.

    Jim: What else would it be. It couldn't be clearer at least to me. Visual reference to the ground means, if you can see it anywhere
