Wow! Ten years have already passed since my first solo “Views from the Flying Carpet” photography exhibition.

Thank you, friend, fellow pilot, and Master Printer Richard Jackson (above left) for starting me down this path, and former Northern Arizona University College of Arts & Letters Dean Michael Vincent for inviting this first solo exhibition that led to numerous others.

And a special thanks to all you good folks who have supported my passions for flying and photography by investing in my Views from the Flying Carpet and “Down to Earth” series Fine Art Metal Prints, Pilot Achievement Plaques, and Photo Wall Calendars since then!

Here’s wishing you the Happiest and Healthiest 2023!

“Vertigo! Some Lessons a Pilot Never Forgets…” Greg Brown’s Flying Carpet Podcast #25

Ride along with renowned aviator, writer, and photographer Greg Brown in his light airplane, the Flying Carpet, as he searches behind clouds for the real America, experiencing countless aerial adventures along the way.


Listen to “Vertigo!” Greg’s Flying Carpet Podcast Flight #25

Some Lessons a Pilot Never Forgets…

“So this must be Vertigo,” I thought. Nausea circled my gut like the snowflakes orbiting my propeller. I peered out the windshield for landmarks, but snow obscured all but a tiny spot of ground beneath me, even at an altitude of only a thousand feet.

To make matters worse, my VOR navigational receiver had obviously failed. How could I possibly have drifted so far off course as it suggested, on a flight of only 40 miles.

It was almost Christmas, and I was a young University of Illinois student transporting precious parts for my motorcycle home to Champaign…

“Fifty Years Aloft,” Greg’s Flying Carpet Podcast #23

Ride along with renowned aviator, writer, and photographer Greg Brown in his light airplane, the Flying Carpet, as he searches behind clouds for the real America, experiencing countless aerial adventures along the way.


Listen to “Fifty Years Aloft,” Greg’s Flying Carpet Podcast Flight #23

I was recently awarded the FAA’s Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award, for 50 years of safe piloting. It’s mind-boggling to consider how short the history of aviation is, that I should have already flown for over 40% of the entire history of powered flight!

In this episode I reflect on how general aviation flying has changed since I took to the skies in 1972.

Today’s story kicks off a whole series of future episodes sharing many more cockpit adventures from those five decades. Something for you to to look forward to!

Okay, everyone, hop aboard my Flying Carpet, snug up your seatbelts, and prepare for takeoff on today’s adventure, “Fifty Years Aloft!”
