The very idea of flight has captivated humanity from the time of Icarus.

I was bitten by the bug, got my license, and have done a fair bit of flying. In this talk I'll discuss various aspects of flight including license requirements, components of flight training, international considerations, and some fun and memorable flights I've done. I'll end up with how you too can be a pilot!

“High Flight” – John Gillespie Magee Jr. Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds, —and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of—wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there, I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air.... Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace Where never lark nor even eagle flew— And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

Off to Koerner’s Pilots like beer – after flying “8 hours from bottle to throttle”
