I started flying airplanes in 1993, which was shortly after high school with intentions of becoming a commercial airline pilot, ‘living the dream’ as all pilots would say. It is a great profession but not as glamorous as some people think. It takes a lot of hard work and training which there should be for a job with such huge responsibilities. It was worth it though. I loved it.

I am retired now and have wanted to share some of the things I have experienced in my years flying and interacting with passengers and different flight crew that I have worked with. This site is my attempt to do just that. I hope you find some part of it helpful as you explore the world as long or as short as your flights may be.
