    It's So Simple To Learn To Fly

    The adventure to learn to fly is a lot easier than what most people think. You don't have to become a commercial or military pilot to fly.

    You can be part of general aviation, or the area of aviation where pilots fly for the sheer enjoyment of flying (like me!)

    Today there are thousands of potential pilots, just like you, who are learning to fly. They come from all walks of life and have various reasons for wanting to learn to fly. Some fly to expand business opportunities, while others seek to attain careers in the aviation industry. Some are even looking for an activity that they can share with their family.

    Most fly for the sheer fun of it! Watch this video and you'll see what I mean.

    Are you ready to go flying now!!

    I am often reminded of a quote and a poem that I once read many years ago. I still read them both as often as I can because they so accurately reflect why, as pilots, there is such a love of flying.

    "When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."Leonardo da Vinci.



    High Flight

    Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
    Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
    Of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
    You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
    High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
    I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
    My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .

    Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
    I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
    Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
    And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
    The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
    — John Gillespie Magee, Jr."
