This is what he feels about flying

Flying has always fascinated me for as long as I can remember. From the time when I was a child I used to pester my father to see planes at the airport, to now, anything that goes up in the air one way or another is of interest to me.

No matter how many hours of flying I have done, whenever I  hear the sound of an airplane, my eyes naturally turn towards the heavens unconsciously scanning the skies for the speck that I may or may not see.
During my life, I have been privileged to be able to fly in paragliders, microlight aircraft, hot air balloons, helicopters, gliders, trikes, etc. and I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every minute that I have been in the air.
I have had radio failures, engine failures, structural issues, have been lost with no idea of where I was… and each experience has taught me something. The most valuable lesson is that no matter how experienced we get, it’s no match for the might of mother nature, and every time we fly, we are submitting ourselves to her mercy. It may not keep me from flying, but as long as I can respect her boundaries, she may indulge me.
In spite of all the hurdles we face to fly in our country, it’s still is a pleasure. We may not have the clear skies and visibility of 30+ miles like in some other countries, but we do have the advantage of predictable weather, lack of icing conditions, and relatively empty skies.
Whether it is chasing a herd of kangaroos in a powered parachute at 20 feet in the Australian outback, dodging clumps of clumulus clouds or following a complicated ATC vector to final, each flight is unique.
Every country seems to lend a unique perspective to flying. The casual radio in the US, as well as the sheer number if aircraft that fly, to the stark beauty of the Swiss Alps to the miles and miles of paddocks in Australia, none can compare to the others.
Each experience is unforgettable. The most boring hour in the air is still more interesting than the most exciting hour on the surface.
Those of us who fly should feel humble in the knowledge that us pilots make up less than one tenth of one percent of humanity. We are truly blessed to be able to fly, and we should make the most of it while we can.
