Puppies on a Plane

Updated: Feb 9, 2021

No, this is not the title of the next Disney thriller. It’s a flight that Martin Fass, Dave Abati and Robert Green flew from McAllen Texas to Austin with six puppies as part of the Pilots N Paws® organization.

Pilots N Paws® is a non-profit organization with the intent of providing an environment in which volunteers can come together and arrange or schedule rescue flights, overnight foster care or shelter, and all other related activities for animals.

There was a lot of puppy love on this flight as the Black Hound Aviation CFIs flew the Piper Lance to McAllen, picked the puppies up and flew them on to Austin and another pilot took them on to their forever homes! If you are looking for an alternate way to spend a cross country flight instead of the usual $100 hamburger, check out their website at

Black Hound Aviation is a Veteran Owned, Part 61 Flight School based at the San Marcos Regional Airport, San Marcos, Texas. We provide flight instruction services, airplane rental, and Redbird simulator rental to the greater Austin, Kyle, Buda, and San Antonio, Texas communities.

Thunderstorm Season Be Now!

With the current rash of thunderstorms, I've developed a refresher. Go out to the web and download AC 00-24C for more information. I plan to present this to the next KHYI IMC in April.
