The Wild Blue

GPop and I took our introductory flights today.  When we paid for ground school, we also paid for the intro flight at the airport.

I went first.  Once we got into the air, the instructor handed over the controls to me.  I felt like I was 16 again at the wheel of the car.  It was an odd sensation, and I had to devote a lot of energy to making sure I at least kept the plane from falling from the sky as fiery death upon the citizens below.

GPop went up after I did, but he had been sick the day before, so he started to get a little queasy, and the instructor brought him back down to earth.

Overall, we're very excited about this.
