I have always been amazed by airplanes, flying, and a career in the industry. In the 80's my attempts at becoming an FA failed many times over. However, I went on to jobs that allowed me to travel, so that helped ease my desire somewhat. I knew one day that I would want to acquire my private pilot's license. I am still waiting for that day to come. My goal is to start taking lessons late this year or next year and start experiencing the joy of being up there with you all. I have made many friends in the industry through FB and other online sources. I enjoy learning more and more about this amazing blue and white world above us. I think the one thing that pulls me to the sky more than anything is something that Amelia Earhart said so many years ago, "Why do I want to fly? Because, I want to be free!" :) I look forward to connecting with each of you here on HangarChat and learning more and more about this world that amazes me so very much. Make it a Great Day Everyone! :)
Keep in touch, Gyroplanes are one of the most fun things you can fly, once you get proper training. Check out pra.org for more info on Gyroplanes. if you look around you can sometimes find a good used Gyro for as little as $5,000 ready to fly. training will run from $140.00 to $170.00 an hour.
Thanks for the Friend request Babette, hope you can meet your goal of flying soon. have you ever checked out Gyroplanes? if not head out to Goose creek airport on lawyers rd. sometime. there are a few guys based there that fly Gyros. also this week is the Bensen Day's Fly-in in Florida, one of the east coast's larger Gyro Fly-ins. if you want to truely feel the freedom of flight, you just have to go for a ride in a Gyroplane. good luck and keep in touch.
