FlightPlans - December 2010

I would like to take a few lines to tell you about aviation and myself. I grew up with a dad who wished he could fly. He took us to lots of air shows. My first small airplane flight was with a friend of my dad’s. He was a Flying Farmer and a good pilot, but it wasn’t a great experience for me, I began feeling woozy as he frequently tipped the plane over on one wing to cheerfully show me something that seemed to be directly underneath us. Later, my dad began taking me along on one of his flying lessons. I became hooked, and soon they were letting me fly, too.
