N4GVA is the backseat operator doing aerial photography.  When he is not 
in the coverage patterns you observed, he does APRS messaging and 
there's enough bi-directional (aka properly configured) IGates in his 
normal range that you can have an APRS QSO via the APRS-IS as well.

One day, over a year ago, I saw him coming up just west of my QTH and 
sent him a message.  He later sent me the photos he took of a) my house, 
b) the street east from my house, c) the parking lot showing my car at 
the convenience store where d) I was standing on the parking lot trying 
to spot his plane.
