To all my new friends, I hope you enjoy this video as much as I do. Happy Holidays!

When I first watched this video by Jj Guerra, it brought back a flood of memories from a cherished time in my life.  It offers a glimpse into a world rarely seen and in my case, greatly missed, not only for the fantastic people with whom I was privileged to work but also for the fleeting opportunity to truly fly.

Watch it here!

Author’s Note:  I apologize that this link is not embedded directly into my blog, but I’m not yet in a position to shell out the mad cheddar to buy a video upgrade from WordPress.  Maybe Santa can hook me up next week.

UPDATE!  Santa didn’t need to hook me up so much as buy me a clue – you can now click on the “Watch it here” link to enjoy the video.  Happy Holidays!

      I was hired with this company after a few years of working as a flight instructor. I hadn’t flown a twin engine aircraft in years and the hiring and training process was the most stressful and exhilarating experience I have ever had as a pilot. In my five years there, I made some tremendous friends, learned a ton about flying, and had so much fun that much of it was probably illegal.

      I moved on from this once I had my first child. I just couldn’t physically do the 12-14 hour 4-5 night a week schedule anymore while caring for a newborn. I found a position with a charter company from which I was laid off in 2007 and I haven’t flown since.

      I miss flying tremendously, but I don’t miss all of the ineffective and sometimes downright idiotic regulations, ginormous egos and occasional misogynistic attitudes that went along with it. This video really helps me remember what I loved about flying.
