For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by planes, the bigger the better, there is something really magical that just resonates with me about gliding through the air in a metal tube!
I’ve been incredibly fortunate to fly as much as I have, and being a passenger with your feet up is great, but its just not the the same as flying the plane, being in the pilots seat and having the best view in the house.
I have experienced the front seat –
as part of an acrobatic flight that was purchased for me as a gift
when flying into Canaima National Park in Venezuela in a 4 seater Cessna (I had the Co-pilot seat)
When flying around the Fjords of Alaska in a small tourist plane
Its an expensive thing to learn, but the reward of being able to fly yourself around the world would be incredible.
