Overview

Flying is awesome. I loved the feeling of being up in the air. However, I was finally able to see how someone could get overwhelmed with flying and not want to continue. I was totally drained after my lesson, and I ended up just eating dinner and going to bed right after. After about a day though, I was ready to go back up, and now I’m looking forward to my next lesson. It is a ton of new information, but as my instructor said, flying is so unlike anything else you’ve done in your life that there is no way to go about it other than drinking straight from the fire hose.

There’s something captivating about an airport at dusk.
