Flying

Tell me and I'll forget. 
Show me and I may remember. 
Involve me and I'll understand.
Chinese Proverb




There is nothing like doing. And doing it in an airplane makes it all the better.  



I've been on the road flying with a great captain, and a group of wonderful First Officers. Tomorrow I'll be back in Amsterdam and get to see my friend An. Next month I'll be attending recurrent training, so having the ability to fly has been a gift.
 

There is no place like the sky. 


There is also no place like home, and I will be there in four more days. I can hardly wait~  
 


Enjoy the Journey!

  1. So glad you got to fly, and so glad you get to come home soon! LOVE that proverb you opened with--it's like the mantra of life.

    1. Thanks Linda! I am close to coming home. Tomorrow. Just delayed in responding. It's a challenge to keep caught up on the road.

  2. "Asking someone why they love to fly is almost like asking someone why they like Picasso. The beauty is the fact that you can't really describe it, it's something that you have to behold. Flying takes you into another dimension, literally. We see, feel, and experience things that people who don't fly will never know." -Barry Schiff, Aviation Safety Expert / Pilot

    ^ From the movie One Six Right

    Hope all has been well with your travels and you've had some great flying over the past few days! You should write a story sometime about a full flight, what you do, and what it's like. It would be so cool to see what your day flying the A330 is like from when you wake up the morning of a trip.

    Have great travels!

  3. I feel those sentiments. No other place like the skies. Especially when it's windy and you're learning stall recovery in a 172. ;)

    Loving those photos as always and of course please send An a hug for me!

    Jeremy.
