    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?

    I Went Through My First Flight This Year

    It was amazing i took pictures and even got the window seat (but that's another story). From far above the Earth looks so beautiful who could not feel a part of a larger scheme.

    I wish I had the means to keep flying.

    Years ago I got private pilots license but the costs of rentals got to be to much for me. But overall I am glad to have earned my license and have the opportunity to take my dad for a few flights. I could never talk my mom into going up, but sharing that with my father is one of...

    I love the coffee-scented airports,

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

    42' Stearman

    My Dad loved airplanes even though he never did get to fly. We visited our Grandparents in Sturbridge Mass when I was 12 (1968) and Dad took my 10 yr old brother and I to the local airport. He sent us up (one at a time) in a 42' Stearman. Every second of that 15 minute flight is...

    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...

    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...

    Flying!

    I love flying! I like even the commercial flying because it's like a lottery when you find out who you are sitting next to.  I love to talk to the person sitting next to me and finding out where they are coming from and going to.  You can meet some very interesting people on a...

    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'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.

    Flying Dream
