this is why we fly....


Recommended Posts

A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of helping out my neighbors who happened to be in their 60s with snow removal during the winter. They owned and operated a pilot school so naturally they owned a plane and his son offered to take me flying as a thank you for helping out during a rather bad winter. Now at one point during the flight, he told me to take the controls and fly it for awhile and I was a bit skeptical so I asked him if he was joking but he said no. Ended up being the best 2 hours I had of the year and it felt weird having somebody trust you to fly a aircraft that costs more then an average car when it's your first time flying.
