    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...

    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?

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

    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...

    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.
