Look Mom, I’m flying!

Last year, BF got me a flying lesson for my birthday. I had plans to use it in the fall when the leaves were changing but that just didn’t happen. So I decided to wait for Spring. I originally scheduled my flight for March 31, but each time I tried to fly the weather kept cancelling me out.

Finally, after 4 different tries to learn how to fly, yesterday was the day! I got to fly with Bob from Chesapeake Sport Pilot, located just over the Bay Bridge. It was a pretty good deal – he did all the hard stuff and I did all the fun stuff. Meaning, I got to fly the plane, but he did the take-off and landing! 🙂

Flying was pretty easy, to be honest. He said most planes can pretty much fly themselves these days, but of course when I went to do it, making the turns felt terrifying and down right death defying. So after I’d had my fun, I went back to happily observing and taking it all in. Burning it into my memory so I wouldn’t forget.

Oh, and course, I took a few pictures. So much fun!
