This past Saturday, our local EAA chapter was having a Young Eagles Day to get kids out and in the air. This was my son's third flight this year, once during his weeklong Young Aviator class and then after another Young Eagle flight back in August. He got to fly in a Slovenian made Pipistrel Alpha trainer, a really unique plane, not many here in the states as it's a fairly new company. It has an 80 hp engine and is the quitest airplane I have ever heard, you could barely even hear it when it was idling before taxiing out.

While he was in the air, he got some really nice photos of the Adirondack Mountains and Lake George, including some photos of the steam paddleboat Minne-Ha-Ha.

In this photo, you can see another plane from the Young Eagles passing by on the left.

While we were there, we got to see this Robinson R44 helicopter come in, it was a private charter out of Delaware.

We also got to see a NY State Police Bell helicopter fly overhead on it's way through.
