I have been a pilot since I can remember. As a child, I spread my arms and ran through the house making airplane engine sounds. Later, I would fold paper airplanes, then graduate to balsa wood model airplanes and that’s where I got temporarily stuck. I didn’t want to fly airplanes just in my mind or looking at them from below. I wanted the real thing: become a pilot.
Fast forward about 15 years. I just arrived at M.I.T. and, strolling across campus, spotted a sign for the M.I.T. Soaring association. Of course I signed up on the spot and started my career as a glider pilot. Later a graduated to single engine planes and later still, I become a gyrocopter pilot.
And that’s where I want to pick up with the story and tell you what I did, where I flew, what I experienced and all that in the coming installment of flying posts.
