“Nothing will ever equal that moment of exhilaration which filled my whole being when I felt myself flying away from the earth. It was not mere pleasure; it was perfect bliss…” — Prof. Jacques Alexandre Cesare Charles
“Fly along with me; I can’t quite make it alone. I try to make this life my own.” – Foo Fighters
Like many children (and professors and rock stars), my 14-year-old daughter, Holland, dreams of becoming a pilot.
This morning, for the very first time and with the grown ups’ permission, she took over the controls and flew a plane.
A real one.
In the sky.
…and landed safely, thank goodness!
And now she is more hooked than ever before on her aviation career prospects.
