Learning To Fly

For my birthday, my wife arranged for me to take a flying lesson. I flew a Cessna from Air Harbor airport to Shiloh Airport and back again. It was one of the coolest things I've ever done. Here are some pics:

Cessna 8 Whiskey Mike. You might wonder why I agreed to go up in a plane with a guy named "Whiskey Mike," but I'm pretty sure that's just the way you say "W" over the radio for aviation purposes. I'm pretty sure.

The cockpit.

Scariest sight in the history of aviation: Mike V piloting an airplane.

Just about to touchdown at Mike Piazza's runway?

A fuel stop. Gas was about $4.00 a gallon

Keep your eyes on the sky!
