Our cousin “B” took Isaac flying last week while he was visiting in PA. “B” was a pilot before he was a licensed driver and was absolutely great showing Isaac how everything worked and letting him really experience the flight. Last year, Isaac flew with “B” but would not sit in the front seat. This year when “B” offered, Isaac jumped at the chance to sit up front. In fact, Isaac was able to do a lot more that just sit up front.
Isaac likes to cut up a bit but Grandma said she had never seen him so serious as when he first touched the controls.
Once they got off the ground, the pilot and the “pilot” flew for about and hour and fifteen minutes and were able to see how the plane reacted to the controls. Grandma was even able to keep her eyes uncovered for the entire time!
Even through the haze, the views were fantastic. It surely is beautiful country, especially from the sky!
This is my favorite picture of the event! Isaac has his eye on where he wants to go
Back safely on the ground “B” gives Isaac his “wings”. “How old do you have to be to learn to fly Dad?” was the first thing I heard when we talked about his flight. I wonder that too…it’s about time we had another hobby, right Emily?
