Cesna182 four passenger plane we took from Abbeville to Marksville. Yesterday I had the pleasure of going flying with Dave and his pilot trainer. Dave did a great job of handling the plane, it was a little windy and there were clouds in the sky, but he maneuvered through them to take us up to 4500 feet where the ride was very smooth.
We went from the Abbeville airport up to the Marksville air strip. Once we landed there was transportation to the casino driving up, we hopped in and had lunch at the casino before flying back to Abbeville. Here are a few photo highlight from our trip.
I really was comfortable in the back seat of this plane. The visibility was great and I was able to recognize a lot of places from the air.
NO cramping up at all in the back row, lots of leg room.

on the lower left you can see the Cajun dome here, with Cajun Field in the lower left corner.
I love shopping in Washington at the Antique Schoolhouse Mall in Washington, its just off of HWY 49.

We were over HWY 14 here, and this is a shot of the Delcambre Canal.
We had a fantastic and relaxing flight from Marksville back to Abbeville. It was smooth flying all the way.
