Like an Eagle Soaring Over Mountains

firstflight.jpgIt was a year ago that I started this blog and took my first flight lesson. I remember it well and the best part was the emotion I felt during and after the flight. The best thing I can equate it to is what it must feel like to be an eagle soaring over mountains*.

To any of my readers who have dreamt of flying but not taken the first step to do so I recommend you go out to your local airport and sign up for a lesson this spring. Visit BeAPilot.com and get your introductory flight certificate for just $49.

It has been an exciting year learning to fly and interacting with fellow pilots through this blog. I look forward to another great year of flying!

Wow. I can't believe it's been a year already! I'm looking forward to new adventures in new skies in the year to come!

Happy 1 year flight anniversary! 8-)

Congrats Todd!

It has been really awesome reading about your achievements on this site. I don't have any aspirations to get a pilots license myself, but I could see others getting inspiration from what you've shown is possible.

Looking forward to hearing about your next flying adventures in the Chicago skys.
