2014 Update

Sorry. I have been busy with life and running a flying club since the end of 2012.

I don’t have anything major to post on here at this time, so feel free to just view the past posts that I have created.

A Pilots Journal

Update 3/10/2021

Apparently a lot of people are reading this blog so I have updated the look and feel of it making it a bit easier to read. I stopped flying a couple of years ago for medical reasons. I am spending more time these days playing music for my own personal pleasure. I may edit a few posts down the road when I am not jumping on trains.

Life is like a train, if you don’t jump on it your will miss the trip!
Don’t be scared to jump on!

Learn to Fly! Join the Penn Yan Flying Club:


My name is Barry Orlando. I am a recreational pilot and father of two living in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. I earned my private pilot certificate on October 15, 2007 and then on October 16th, 2010 I earned my Advanced Ground Instructor certificate. Like many my thoughts of flying were just a dream until I did something about it. Now that I have been flying for a bit, I understand how addicting it can be and I go out and seek new challenges for myself. You should too!
