Classic Aero-TV: Seated On The Edge Of Forever -- A PPC's Bird's Eye View

A Segment Of The Sport Aviation World That Truly Lives "Low And Slow"

Pity the life of ANN's Chief videographer, Nathan Cremisino... shoot the most exciting aircraft in the world, attend the most intriguing events in the aerospace community... and now and then, just fly along to geek out at how cool aviation, in all its many forms, can be.

Yeah... Nathan has a hard life... as you can plainly see by this video shot at the Popular Rotorcraft Association Fly-In in Mentone, IN. The event, normally populated by rotorcraft, shared the skies with quite a few members of the powered parachuting community and it was clear that every one had a ball.

Every year, the most dedicated fans of sport rotorcraft journey to a sleepy little airport in Mentone. The town hosts a pretty neat little airport that, among it many claims to fame, is the home of the Popular Rotorcraft Association and a dynamite yearly rotorcraft gathering that gets its buzz on right after Oshkosh.

First invited to the event in 2010, the addition of Powered Parachutes has gone well. The PPCs do most of their flying during periods of low wind in the morning and around dusk, and the gyroplanes, which are better suited to (and more fun in) moderate winds fill the sky through the remainder of the day. For a glimpse at what all the fuss is about, climb aboard a PPC, with ANN's Nathan Cremisino and find out for yourself.
