What It Felt Like To Be In Control...
I've been corresponding with a future pilot, about the A330 and flying. Then one day last week he sent me an email and said....
"So today I had my first lesson where we learned climbs, descents, attitude, turns, idle descents, powered descents, and constant pitch! It was sooo much fun!"
I was so excited to hear more of that first flight, and his first lesson, that I asked him to send me an email to tell us more.

"Hey there! I'm Brandon from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and I just took my first introductory flight along with my first lesson the other day! It was really, really, really fun, it's an amazing feeling being in the controls of an aircraft and actually flying the airplane!
It was as easy as I thought it was going to be, not hard at all. Being up there and seeing the land below zooming by is quite the sight, being 4,000 feet up and seeing everything. It's really empowering being up in the sky knowing you've done what man dreamed of doing hundreds of years ago, you've defied everything like gravity etc. I'm 21 going on 22 and I wish I had done this years ago but I'm only looking forward to the rest of my flying career!"
Looks like we have another pilot in the making! Brandon, I'm looking forward to flying with you one day. Welcome aboard the journey to a great career. And thank you for the photos. Anyone have some advice for a new pilot, or just want to say hello and wish him luck... leave a comment!
Brandon comes from an aviation background, so it's no wonder he is headed to the sky. Sometimes, it's all about the history. Pop on over to From Private To Professional Pilot, to read more about this young man and his family. Brandon, Thank you for sharing your experience!
Enjoy the journey!
