Nope RC, you would be wrong, I did not do most of the flying. The guy with me is finishing up his instrument rating, so he did a lot of the enroute flying under the hood, so I was responsible to scan for, see, and avoid other traffic. He did most if not all the talking to ATC as well as he needs the practice, though he did not understand some of the clearances, so I translated for him and then also gave him some instruction on which freq to call when and what they would be expecting him to say... It just takes time and experience to get radio comms down to the most concise they can be and polish your technique so you sound like a jet jock. Let's see, first day I did the landing in Munising and the takeoff for our evening flight, but he did the second landing into there. I also took the controls during flight for him to get pictures and video out of his side or to put his foggles on our take them off... I don't have to be the one manipulating the controls to gain experience from the flight, which is a good thing since I'm an instructor and the goal is to get the other guy on the controls as much as possible. Coming out of Beaver Island yesterday, I thought I heard some engine noise that was out of the ordinary. Since we were going to be 20+ miles over water, beyond glide, I suggested we turn around for a precautionary landing, at which point he insisted I take the controls, which I was happy to do. We checked everything over, did not find any issues, so I did the takeoff and initial climbout from the island and did not feel or hear anything further.
One of the best pictures I missed was just of the coast of Alpena. We were both looking at something on the shoreline, then I turned back to my right to scan for traffic and saw TWO C-130s opposite direction, about 200' above us (which is CLOSE when you are in the air). Pretty sweet view, but no time at all to grab the camera with the closure rate probably > 300 knots!
