Today, my fellow chit chatters, I flew an airplane!

Not solo or anything, this was just one of those hour long intro flights.
My wife got it for me last Christmas and I waited until autumn to book
it, because of the better chance for a clear day. We had a perfect day,
with visibility from Monterey to San Francisco, and I'm excited to report
that I had an awesome time! I got the hang of the Cessna 172 really
quickly and flew from taxi to final approach when the instructor took
over at 600ft. I can't recommend this experience enough, what a
fantastic time.


I would imagine that a few of you have your pilot's license and to you I
say, never forget how fun it is to fly a small airplane no matter how
long you have been doing it. Maybe when the kids are grown and out of the
house I will pursue it, but for today, I got to fly a plane!!

I've taken a ride in a small plane. Exciting.

But the best was a hot air balloon ride where we ran out of gas and had to ditch the balloon. I was too stupid to know we were in danger in a bunch of power lines.

I thought it was cool until I found out how close we came to dying.

But the story lives on. cool

I jumped out of a small plane once. One of the best things I have ever done besides getting married. Of course, she was jumping too...

Maybe I'm weird but I have no more bucket list temptations. I'm boring laugh I did enough stupid stuff in my High School years and am just glad to be alive after all that devil

Why would anyone ever jump out of a plane?

Aww crap! There goes my TV inspired, idealized view of Alaska!

So you're saying that everyone is not a private pilot up there?

We all assumed your taxi could fly.
