What an experience to sit in a small airplane on a beautiful day and know that your sixteen year old is flying the plane..or at least learning to fly. Today was Scott’s first official flight as a student.
I can remember Scott sitting in the jogging stroller next to Amy. He had a small remote control for a Little Tykes car that he carried around with him. He would hold it out and pretend he was navigating a Pod Racer. A real Luke Skywalker with a little lisp.
Once he realized that his chances of Pod Racing were next to nothing, he settled for airplanes. After taking him to an airshow he was hooked. The smell of airplane fuel and sound of the props was not just interesting, it was intoxicating and has been his life goal from the young age of 9.
He has been in Civil Air Patrol and had the opportunity to fly, each thing a step toward his goal. Recently Scott was awarded a scholarship to begin getting his pilot’s license. Every week he goes to ground school and today was the first time in the pilot’s seat of the plane. He is on his way toward living his passion.
Let your dreams take flight..the sky is the limit!
“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return. ”
