    I love the coffee-scented airports,

    the skymall magazines, the feeling of the airplane lifting off the ground.

    I recently completed my long cross country to

    meet the commercial certificate requirements. I picked Jacksonville executive for my destination, and I opted to file IFR, since there were quite a few cloud layers and some wether that day. I encountered some moderate precipitation, although for a few moments I encountered...

    Miss It Bad

    I started flying 10 years ago when I was 17 and then joined the Air Force. I flew Cessnas, the best time of my life is when I soloed on my mom's birthday July 18th. It was the best feeling in the world that only I experienced. Being in the plane by myself, knowing...

    Flying Dream

    The clouds are dark today. The blue of evening had soaked right through them, seeping like blueberries in winter. Such a rich ink blot. Music soars with us this night, the trance is moving my fingers to write, the tapping of keys on the desk. Taking things further than before...

    In another life, I'd a been one of these guys.

    My dad was a fighter pilot, and I loved what he did. But, I needed glasses, and that dream was gone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSCdvj4tAFg

    I've been a pilot for three years now

    and I've got to share this with somebody, its amazing. I'd urge anyone out there who can and is willing, to give it a shot... Unless you're scared of heights, then it won't be a good idea.

    Pilots Are Pioneers

    I remember my first solo flight. The thrill of the quick lift off from the ground with a lighter craft due to the instructor left behind and leaving one fewer body inside the cockpit. The thrill of looking outside at the wheels no longer touching the ground and the realization...

    What Should I Do?

    I love flying, since you have time to do some things that you just wouldn't do if you where at home. Like coloring and all that child-like stuff. DO you have any suggestions on what i could do while i'm in the airplane?

    Thrill Of Aerobatics

    I'm not a pilot, just a "Wanta-be". My dentist often would pick me up and share the joy and freedom flying provides. When he had his craft rebuilt for aerobatics I was one of the first to get a ride. First I was fitted with a chute. Oh Boy, what had I gotten myself into. If I...

    I Loved Flying Sailplanes

    Airplanes and flying run in both sides of my family.  My father studied aeronautical engineering, but had to quit after he had kids, though he built, designed and flew model airplanes for sixty years, up until the day that he died. Oddly, he was scared of flying.  A...

    42' Stearman
