The Next Amelia Earhart

Flying an airplane is exhilarating, and far less terrifying than I anticipated. Thankfully, I had a trusty flight instructor with me who provided some takeoff and landing skills (thank goodness… I’m not sure what kind of shape either of us would be in if I had been responsible for either of those); I, however, did all of the in-between work.

This plane ride was probably about 45 minutes in total, and completely worth it. If it wasn’t so expensive, I would go for a full-out pilot’s license, and fly a private plane around for fun. I told friends about this adventure, and the reaction ranged from the experience most likely being awesome or terrifying. They all asked, “Why?”

 

My answer, always:

“Because I felt like it.”

Some pretty serious head gear!
