Fly Girl Kelly

A few weeks ago I met a girl who is training to be a commercial airplane pilot. It was a lucky coincidence; we just started talking out of the blue. (Or maybe synchronicity again?) She generously offered to take me for a ride in a Cessna 172 from her school. So we did. It was pretty incredible, to say the least, and best of all, the heights didn't bother me.

This Saturday, I'm going up in a Schweitzer 300 helicopter, which is small like the Robinson R22, with a local instructor. That will be the real heights test.

In the meantime, here's Kelly, doing her fixed wing thing...
