You Will Believe a Man Can Fly…in a Plane

My lovely bride bought me a gift certificate for a “discovery flight” with Monarch Air in Addison, Texas. After several weather-related re-schedulings, I finally took the flight this morning (12/5/2015). I got to to steer, climb and descend, while Levi, the flight instructor, kept his hands and feet firmly on the controls. We were near Dallas-Fort Worth Airport and Love Field, as well as a number of smaller airports, so there was quite a bit of traffic. Here’s the only minute of video I shot in flight — at about 2,500 feet, if I recall correctly. The rest of the time, I was busy making sure Levi did all the proper flight thingies and stuff. He did good.
