Default OT.... my birthday present

I am excited because I finally get to make use of my birthday present
after 7 months. My wife and son had arranged a wonderful surprise for
me, a familiarization flight. It would count as a first lesson if I
choose to follow up and get my pilot's license. Back when I got the
certificate the flights were all booked up, and my friend, who is a
retired airline pilot, thought I should wait until spring when the
weather is nicer. Then we were in lock down. Well, we came out of lock
down yesterday and I was able to book a flight today. It will be
tomorrow at 2 pm.

Good luck and let us know how it went!

Remember, any disagreement between a plane and the other earth,
earth ALWAYS wins.

Have fun. Never got my license but have flown (with a licensed pilot)
since I took the stick of a J3 Cub about 65 years ago.

That's strange. I thought all flying today was done by a computer or remote. The pilots and co-pilots are just security guards, etc...
