Nice one man, looks like a ton of fun!
Awwww yay! This is awesome!
Also . Why do you hate pics of yourself?!
I did 5 lessons and had to stop due to eye surgery.
Make sure you do LOTS of chair flying at home between lessons!
I miss being in the air!
I really want to learn flying but the wife thinks it’s dangerous. How do I convince her?
For most of us, it's the expense of learning to fly and not the danger that is the deal killer with the missus.
If you're properly trained, flying is no more dangerous than driving. And of course if you're trained further (as commercial pilots are), it's much, much safer. While you're a student, there's a highly trained certified flight instructor also on board able to take over the controls, so the accident rate is once again much less than the accident rate of driving. (Yes, after some training, you solo a bit as a student, but your flight plans are closely monitored; your most dangerous time is once you've got your license and lost your instructor but haven't built up the hundreds of hours of flight time experience yet.)
A lot of learning to fly is learning to make an emergency landing if the engine dies, or learning to recover from a stall, or learning to do maneuvers (e.g. emergency descents) that you would never typically experience, which on the surface sounds dangerous but really just ensures your training "kicks in" if a real emergency develops (so this is "in the air" learning, not just book learning). Imagine if driving school involved having an instructor killing the brakes and seeing if you could safely stop the car. Your wife doesn't have to know about that.
Is there a flying school in your area? Can you afford the 50+ hrs of flight and instruction time it would take to get a license? If so, take her on a "discovery flight" and gauge her reaction and go from there.
Well said thank you. I will for sure look into it.
Did you stomp the landing?
Awesome sauce brother.
What made you want to start flying?
