About me

Arguing with a pilot is like wrestling with a pig in the mud, after a while you begin to think the pig likes it.

Brief description: I am Rizwan, 36 years old, I have two college degrees, one BA in ECONOMICS and BBA in ACCOUNTING/FINANACE. I am married and have a 5 year old boy. One of the biggest joy in my life is flying, I own the plane seen with my profile picture.

    Hi all,
    I wanted to be a CFI and bought CFI Instructor Training Books. I have changed my mind because, I don't feel that my skill level is where I can teach others and also my wife doesn't want me to pursue it. So for me it is back to Experimental flying. I guess my new direction is to fly and share the gift of flight with my friends and shoot a lot of videos like Damien or Jeff.
    Please email me at rizzywizzy@yahoo.com if you are interested in CFI training books.
    Regards,
    Rizzy

    It has been awhile riz hey wanted to thank you for the laugh at my miserable night job . Iam your pilot still laughing trike or no trike it will be good to have you there.

  • white eagle

    hey riz what yu been up too hows your flying going iam temperarly grounded found a freyed cable. so waiting on replacement. happened in transport caught it in preflight. you still planning on making bonners ferry I hope.

  • RizzyWizzy

    That is funny Henry, I did an still do think once in a while to learn PPG flying, but I guess if you have a 19 meter wing, you can come pretty close to that slow flying experience. I want to try it though. Now, if you do feel that they crossed the line by using your clip than by all means you should talk to them. I thought you might be happy knowing that you are in a video. I have not finished the video, so I don't know if your name is in the credits (maybe it is there). Quite frankly I think the use of copyright material is a grey area. Many of us trike pilot shoot videos and use copyrighted music to promote our videos...Is that ok for us to do that? So I don't know Henry what is right and wrong here. But if you want than you should talk to them.

I thought id been shot ny some back hills wanna be montanan that didnt know the difference between a trike and a big bird? Turns out i got impaled by  a 6 line june beattle. No small bug by any means . 2  to 3 inches by 1  -1/4  green stripped  bullet it was. Another great reason to wear a viser and a helmet.  But if you need more reasons theres also that seagull in chelan who was playing chicken with me head on when he  or she decided to turn tail and run. I knew i was in trouble when it lifted its tail and squirted a large egg sized blob directly in my path.  Of course i would of wore it like a badge of honor from one bird to another!

    • white eagle

      Great blog rizzy. And one ive said before needs more coverage and debate. After listning and talking to many pilots one common denominator seems to top most subjects . And rightly so fear of loss of controll.
      I will fully admit that getting in that not in full controll felling is one that scares me as well! Exspesially trying to stick a good landing in unexspected conditions!

    • ULtrikepilot

      I just saw this great video (thanks Bryan) where Cedric talks about fear and thought it might be helpful for some. I personally can relate to most of his points even though I put them in a context quite different from wing suit flying. The idea is to harness the flow or synergy between fear, educated risk taking, preparation, positivity and belief in the future with a real focus on living right now. Enjoy

    • white eagle

      I recomend this ted talk to everyone. Just great having this defined. The only part i kinda disagree with is talent depending on how you define it.
      So i might say or add that talent is an ability to learn quickly. Yes all people can learn givin enough energy and time. But just like it wouldnt be a good idea for spanky from the lil rascals to perform poverotti. I think there is a point where you should draw the line with high risk sports.
      Trike flying , hang gliding is not one that alows you alot of do overs from repeated mistakes. If you are not learning on a fairly graduated schedule than truthfully you may want to persue something else you are more suited for. Yes everyone can learn . But not all should be incouraged. I believe everyone has talents to some degree. Risks vary with individual personality. Someone who freezes up with fear is not onlyonly a danger to themselves but also their instructor. I would never support an instructor that wouldnt at some point direct them in other avenues.
      This may or may not be the intended opinion of this video, Iam just trying to clarify it a bit because i do appreciate others talent(gift of learning and demonstrating a subject somewhat spontanious)!
      I really like the idea of flow as an example and how its used. To me flow is when all the right stuff comes together in your emotions and thought process.
      Detemination with full analysis, fear but controlled , and being rewarded well above the risk.
      I look for that on every flight. Thanks for putting this up joe
