The Moccasin Flying Club, based out of the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport, isn't a flying school--but they can help student pilots earn their licenses, and they provide social interaction for experienced pilots. They have a Cessna 172 and a Flight Design CTSW, and members may fly the planes. Gene Perkins, the Membership Coordinator, joins us for this segment.
If you've driven on I-24 West lately, around NickaJack Lake, you may have seen a strange aircraft in the sky. Is it something that looks like a flying go-kart or a pontoon boat with hang glider wings? Well, you're not dreaming.
The official name for the aircraft is a Krucker Cygnet, also known as a trike. WUTC's Garrett Crowe speaks and flies with trike pilot Erik Graper about the aircraft.
