So this morning after the show I headed up to Suburban Aviation in Ottawa Lake, MI just over the border. Richard Stansley took me for what they call a Discovery Flight for people who are interested in learning how to pilot. I am amazed at how easy Rich made it look and at the ease of which anyone can learn, at almost any age. It was a short 25 minute flight but being above the earth like that is just so relaxing I couldn't believe it. I need a flight every morning after the show I think. I'll be sharing details in the coming weeks on how you can learn this relaxing hobby.
Here's a few pics and a short movie. I did get to use the controls by the way. What a freakin' cool experience. For more information click on this link SUBURBAN AVIATION
