I've been flying with a husband and wife team. Captain Bob Hilten, and his wife Lynn, are incredible. Not only do they both fly an exceptional airplane, but their professionalism doesn't waiver with their commitment to each other, their job, and their love of flying.
And they've adopted me. Bob and Lynn invited me to join them on their Christmas Eve dinner. Then tonight, back in Honolulu, they kidnapped me and took me out again. Another wonderful evening.
Everyone say's, "It's all about the crew" and they're right.
On their days off, Bob and Lynn, ride their horses into the mountains of Montana for camping trips. They kayaking, ski, backpack, fly their own Cessna, and snowboard. Lynn is also a Vet, a gifted pianist, and photographer. Bob has a brilliant mind for the sciences, physics, astronomy, and is semi retired from the Navy. And you should see them fly a plane.
Despite the 160 knot headwinds into Osaka or the dodging of thunderstorms upon our return to Honolulu, the trip has been incredible. Thanks to a wonderful Crew.
Enjoy the Journey!
