Aviation Fingerprints

"Aviation professionals come and go. But few leave their finger prints and continue to make a significant difference to keep this second to none world a unique one.

To all the aviators who are flight instructing, motivating future pilots, keeping general aviation alive, and fighting for safety, please take a moment to pat yourself on the back. As Jalal spoke so beautifully, this world is second to none. Each one of us can do something to make it better. Every life we touch, will touch another.

Aviation is our future. It connects the world. We owe it to the generations to follow, to make it the safest possible. And now... I am off to Tokyo today. Beginning of an eight day trip: NRT. SIN. BOM. SIN. NRT. SEA.

Enjoy the Journey!

  1. Well you better give yourself a smack on the back if I'm patting it haha!

    Awesome to have so many people keeping aviation alive through their blogs, sites, and youtube channels.

    Have a fantastic trip!

    1. Ahhh.. Thank you so much Swayne! Yes... you are keeping it alive to. You are the future... so pat yourself on the back.

  2. Well, I hope you are going to be flying to all those cities in something bigger than what's in the picture above. If not, are you using some kind rocket power on that thing?

    1. Yes... I had two firsts, and tomorrow is another. A ride on 777 and a 787... and tomorrow flying an empty A330. Life it good. Thanks for the comment Mark

  3. You know...

    We cross borders, feel at home at many different places. Dare to think bigger and go further. And brave enough to try something new.

    We inspire conversations about tastes yet to be savored. Music yet to be heard. Dialects yet to be spoken. And cultures yet to be experienced.

    We realize our dreams because of who we are, where we come from and where we are going.

    There is a reason why I think students should wear a uniform, but with the right number stripes...

    Oh... we looove what we do!

    *shows Karlene a glass of dry martini and says cheers*


    1. Lol... Cheers Alex! Thank you! You say so many inspirational things. I should pull them all and put them in a book! Beautiful!


Thank you for your comment! If your comment doesn't appear immediately, it will after I land. Enjoy the journey!
