“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”

As pilots, we all start out with two bags. One is a bag full of luck and the other is an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty your bag of luck. To most people, the sky is the limit. To those who love aviation, the sky is home. Fly yourself to the limits, but bring home your bag of experience and, please, share it.
