Why did you start flying?
I was very fortunate to grow up in an aviation family and was exposed to the wonder of flight at an early age. I can recall that nearly every weekend I would fly right-seat with my father in our 1967 Piper Cherokee. It was these early experiences and the encouragement from my family that drove me to pursue my private pilots license when I was 17. Now more than 5 years later I am flying left-seat of that same Cherokee and I can confidently say that flying is my life’s greatest passion.
