The airshow ended Day One. On the morning of Day Two, we afforded Dad the opportunity to visit the Fly Market while Bruce and I strode off to visit the hangar exhibits. Needless to say, aviation electronics led the way in contributing to my humbleness. I didn't know where to start catching up. I took the buffet approach and nibbled on everything from PDA Nexrad weather to complete MFD systems. The technology was mind-numbing. My wife is aware of my amateur geek tendencies. If it wasn't for money and the minor detail of not owning an airplane, I would become as obsessive with aircraft electronics as a gambler is with a Las Vegas slot machine. I ended the tour with a visit to Diamond's VLJ mock-up. That didn't help in the catching up department either. Bruce and I strolled back to the Aeroclub for lunch. We reunited with Dad. Dad spread out a plastic bag full of goodies onto the picnic table. He had found bargains at the Fly Market that he didn't really need, but that's one of his favorite pastimes. He was happy. And yes, of course, Dad took pictures. Mike Schrader, a salesman with Columbia Aircraft and a former salesman with this magazine, joined us for lunch. He invited us to visit his exhibit, which I always do. I can't think of a better example of general aviation development. The contrast between the Piper Cherokee that was the basis for most of my early days in training and the Columbia series of airplanes is like tomatoes and green peppers. It's not just the technology, but the human factors concept in the design that makes the difference. Knowing my father's background in industrial design and human factors, I thought the visit would be of interest. It was. And I counted on Mike's vast knowledge of the product and his smooth patter to assist in Dad's education. By the time we left, Mike had drawn a small crowd around the wing cutout section. You guessed it, Dad took more pictures.
