First Passenger............

This morning I had my first flight with a passenger. I promised my 9 year old son a couple of years back that he would be the first. Today we flew 0.8hrs south of Phoenix. Planned a further flight but the visibility was poor plus we departed later than expected. Small steps. I have 12 months to explore the State!

Seeing his smile, made me realise that the wait was worth it.

It's going to be a great 12 months flying over here in the US.

Next flight - tomorrow morning with my daughter.


  1. Hey man,

    read your blog and loved it. I'm supposed to come to Chandler in about a month for my PPL/IR and hourbuilding.
    Would like to ask you a few things, so if you have an email or Facebook?


    1. Tom, email me at or find me on Facebook

  2. I bet your son was just so proud to be out flying with his dad. Something he will remember for the rest of his life. I hope the weather cooperates for your daughter.

  3. Thanks for the reply hilts50! Both flights went well. Now heading into my third weekend being a Private Pilot. This time, I will be flying in California.
