Who would have thought that I would have had a chance to fly on a turbojet Lear, with "Mr. Learjet", aviation legend Clay Lacy at the controls? Even cooler than that was the altitude that we cruised around at, while checking out some local attractions.
One interesting side note, this aircraft actually belonged to Bill Lear.
At one point of the video, you'll notice a steep climb, when we asked Clay about it at the end of the flight, he said that our initial vertical speed was 10,000 feet per minute!
