The Thrills of Flying

posted in: Flight Operations | 0

Hello everyone! I hope you all had an enjoyable Independence Day celebration. Being a comercial pilot I finally get to do what I love to do as a job. Now that the growing season is in full swing I have been logging lots of flight time. I do, however, plan to log more hours than I have been and you can help. How can you help? Well, if you’re in the Winterset area then give me a call at 515-462-1811 and schedual a tour with me. I can take you over your crop fields, over Des Moines, or anywhere within 25 nm of Winterset. If you ask anyone who knows me they will all tell you that I look for any excuse to go flying. I get a massive amount of enjoyment by sharing the thrill of flying with other people. I have been fortunate this year because many of the people I have given tours to had never been flying before. That is the best feeling for me to give someone their first airplane ride ever. Winterset and the Des Moines area have many great things to see. We have covered bridges, farm land, lakes, parks, woods and the busy downtown area. Des Moines air traffic control is great to work with and they even give me permission to fly over the state capital as long as they are not super busy. My goal as a pilot here is to share the thrill that I love so much with everyone I can. So if you ever find yourself in the Winterset or Des Moines area, stop on by and experience my favorite thrill, flying. Well friends that is all for now. Until next time be safe and remember to have fun.
