So far I have flown twice this week – once a pattern ride to do a little practice (which didn’t seem to help much) and the second another EAA Eagle Flight with a local EAA Chapter member.
The weather up here in Reno had been unusually nice for November. We actually set high temperature records last Friday and Sunday.
The Eagle Flight was completed yesterday with an individual who was involved in aviation early in his life in several volunteer capacities but never took any instruction toward a pilot certificate. Then, as so often happens, life got in the way an flying was set aside.
Now he is interested in changing his life’s direction and sees aviation as a possible later-in-life career path – not necessarily in an airline capacity but more likely in one of the other myriad of commercial flying possibilities.
