        Testing the autopilot on the ILS approach Runway 36R at Cecil Field, Florida KVQQ. William Kent, pilot, Francesco Ausenda, CFII (Florida Flyers Flight School, St. Augustine) in the right seat, and Wayne Henderson, former Navy A7 carrier pilot and CFII, in the back seat. It was a beatiful late fall afternoon, the day before Thanksgiving, November 24, 2010. After we tried three approaches we did a full stop and taxied to the FBO for a coke and popcorn. While we were there two Marine Corps F-18s landed and taxied up to the FBO. We got ear plugs and went out and watched them, then got to talk to the pilots and even got a look inside the F-18. That was a thrill.

          Late afternoon departure, Saturday November 20, 2010, from St. Augustine in N2494E, my Cessna 182. Today started with getting up and meeting Demarick Hunter, my client who was released from federal prison last night, after the federal Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals granted a habeas bond motion I had filed September 23rd. It was an incredible day yesterday - - getting word that the court had granted the motion, making the arrangements to get the release order processed, flying up to Jesup, Georgia to pick up Demarick from the prison and fly him back to Florida. Eleven p.m. last night, I, Demarick and appellate attorney friend and fellow pilot, Wayne Henderson, were in the IHOP in St. Augustine getting some food in Demarick (he had not eaten all day), and listening to him talk about his feelings. It was an awesome day and I thank God for his release. Today I picked him up and got him to the airport for a commercial flight for the rest of the way home, and I turned around and drove back to the St. Augustine airport for some flying to relax. A beautiful Fall day.

            I flew over to Kay Larkin airport, Palatka, Florida, to practice the GPS approach, and after doing a full stop landing there at dusk, turned around and took back off for the trip home to St. Augustine. Palatka is famous as the town where the evangelist Billy Graham was baptized in 1938 and ordained as a minister. Billy Graham was and is a big influence in my life. This video is the take off from Kay Larkin, 28J is the airport designation, from Runway 9, November 20, 2010.

              Yesterday was a blessed day. The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals without advance warning issued an order granting my habeas bond motion for my pro bono client Demarick Hunter, ordering the district court to immediately set conditions of release. The district court acted without delay and entered an order early yesterday afernoon (November 19, 2010), ordering Mr. Hunter released without the formality of a bond hearing, but instead that the Bureau of Prisons release him immediately. I and a good friend of mine, attorney Wayne Henderson (who is an outstanding criminal appeal attorney as well), flew up in N2494E to the federal prison at Jesup, Georgia where Mr. Hunter was incarcerated. The paperwork processing took a good bit of time but both the court and BOP went the extra mile in making sure he was released the same day the court of appeals entered the order. I watched as Mr. Hunter came through the prison door, after serving seven years and five months of what had been a fifteen year six month sentence. He was ready to leave. We had a cab waiting and it drove us over to Wayne County Airport, we preflighted the plane and took off. I think it was Mr. Hunter's first ride in a small plane. We were not able to get away until about 9:45 p.m. but had a beautiful full moon flight back to St. Augustine. Wayne Henderson, who as a carrier jet pilot in the Navy, said they called these "Commander nights" in the Navy, because even the Commander would fly on a full moon night. Mr. Hunter was so happy to be out of the prison and so was I for him. Wayne and I and Mr. Hunter went to an all night IHOP to get something to eat. Mr. Hunter had had nothing to eat all day. We ate some great eggs and pancakes and thanked God for his release. Today I went back to the airport and took the plane up by myself and did some practice GPS approaches. This video catches a miraculous sunset and then the long 12 mile final approach flying by hand the GPS Runway 9 approach at dusk at Kay Larkin Airport, 28J, Palatka, Florida. (Kay Larkin was a WW aviation hero.) I landed and then taxied back and took off again home for St. Augustine. God is good and to God be the glory.

              • Departing Runway 6, St. Augustine, Florida 11-13-2010 William Kent in N2494E, Cessna 182 for Cedar Key, Florida

                A beautiful Fall afternoon. The plane is finally back from the avionics shop where some new autopilot equipment was installed and a fresh annual was completed. I could not talk Caroline into going with me, so I flew by myself to Cedar Key, Florida on the Gulf Coast of Florida. This was the departure from Runway 6 at KSGJ. I have a new camera, a Contour HD, which I used for the first time. It is simple to use, and the sound is excellent, but as you see in this video, something about the video setting made the propellor come through in an annoying blur. I will try to fix that next time, if possible.

                  After weeks in the avionics shop for some new autopilot equipment, the plane is back! This afternoon was a beautiful Fall day, CAVU. I flew by myself from St. Augustine, Florida to Cedar Key, Florida, landed and turned around and came right back. This clip is the landing on return. The wind was 040 at 11-13 knots, so the tower was giving Runway 6 to land on, a 2,700 foot runway. Runway 2-20 is closed for construction and the wind was a direct cross wind for the main runway, 13-31. This is a new camera system, my first video with it. The sound works good, but the propellor makes a blur in the video. I will have to see if there is any way to prevent that.

                    • Night Approach and Landing Sarasota Bradenton Airport September 14, 2010 - William Kent N2494E

                      Approach and landing at Sarasota Bradenton, Florida Airport (KSRQ) the night of September 14, 2010. William Kent flying a Cessna 182, N2494E. The landing as such starts at the 5 minute mark in the video, so if you wish, let the video download about a third of the way, then fast forward to 5:00 minutes and watch from there to get the landing. The tower gave me the option of straight in to Runway 22, although that meant landing with a gusting tailwind, but this runway was so long it did not matter, so that is what I did. This was the start of a round robin flight, St. Augustine, Florida to Sarasota, Florida Tuesday night, September 14, 2010, for court in Sarasota Wednesday morning, then on to Tallahassee, Florida Wednesday after court to meet a client and visit clients at the Wakulla County Detention Center in Crawfordville, Florida, then on that evening to Bob Sikes Airport at Crestview, Florida (for a Santa Rosa Detention Center visit in Milton that night and a visit to a client at the Century Correctional Institution at Century, Florida the next afternoon), then back to Bob Sikes Airport in Crestview and a flight back to St. Augustine Thursday evening. Over a 1,000 miles, about six hours of flying. This video shows the approach and landing at Sarasota Bradenton Airport about 8:30 at night. I taxied up to Rectrix FBO, who I highly recommend. A beautiful facility and very well run. Same compliment to the Million Air FBO at Tallahassee, who also have a beautiful facility and made their conference room available to me at no charge to meet with my clients. As always, the folks at Emerald Aviation at Bob Sikes Airport were down to earth, friendly and helpful. A lot of the joy of flying is the nice people you deal with at the airports.
