Athens, OH 19 October 2019 –
Today was a special day. I was able to take up a fellow ambassador flying and show them what I do on a daily basis. It was interesting to see how another individual who isn’t sharing the same major reacts to being up in the air. Their face when we were flying four, five, even six thousand feet in the air is priceless.
I was even able to allow them to fly in circles for a few minutes to get a feel for how a plane operates. They insisted on wanting to go back up and fly again and were bummed when we had to land.
I thought back to when I first started flying, and I remember having the same reaction. In fact, every time I can get up in the plane and fly, I am excited and ready to see something new. There’s nothing better than being able to fly.
Even though I was nervous about taking a non-pilot up in the air, since I’ve only ever flown with an instructor or myself, I would definitely do it again. I love being able to share my interests with others, and I hope that fellow students can get the chance to experience something as exciting as getting to fly.
