Flight from New York to
Date: April, 2012
Aircraft Registration: N580MS
Pictures from the flight:
"Pilot Ben Zwebner was meticulous in his flight planning under pressure
to deliver my RV7A with the threat of very adverse weather
conditions... I was concerned for Ben’s safety and the
for a bent and wounded RV. The go-no-go decision was based on
Ben’s prudent assessment of the weather and an early start...
When Ben finally arrived (to St. Catherines for customs clearance),
customs agents acted as living tie downs to hold the airplane in the
gusty winds while the usual clearance inspections were carried out...
I climbed on board buckled up... Ben managed the departure
considerable professional skill and a deft hand on stick and rudder and
suddenly we were airborne and on our way on the 13 nm hop to my home
base Grimsby, Ontario. I took the controls and found the airplane light
and responsive but remarkably stable given the conditions. I am glad I
came along for the ride in conditions that I would normally not venture
in to. With Ben in the left seat, it was a great confidence builder.
The landing at Grimsby’s 2800ft runway was challenging. Ben
handled this with great skill and professionalism and talked me through
I would happily recommend Ben Zwebner to anyone in need of a
ferry pilot to move their precious flying machine"
