Well my Mother was terrified, my father was nervous, and my brother thought it was awesome! All take-offs and landings were very smooth, and since none of the people in my family know very much about flying, they thought I was fabulous just for taking them up and bringing them back down in one piece!
And the Ka-6 is sheer beauty translated into flying. It was truly a joy filled experience to fly it. It felt so much like an extension of myself that for a minute I thought I was a bird.
