We've Been Cleared!

THURSDAY THOUGHTS


"Impossible is NOT a word.

It's just a reason for someone NOT to try."

_______________________


I came across this quote on Instagram yesterday and and it struck a chord with me.  Reflecting on certain situations that have happened not only with myself, but other people, I have come to realize the truth to the quote above.

We may have situations in our life along with goals and ambitions, that we think that would be impossible to accomplish.  Events fall into place which make it difficult to accomplish dreams.

Two aviation quotes come to mind to supplement the main quote above...

"A mile of highway will only take you a mile.. A mile of runway will take you anywhere!"



"When everything seems to be going against you, remember that an airplane takes off against the wind, not with it."
-Henry Ford


When we have the dream to line up our lives for take off, we must be prepared for everything to go against us.. Even if events and the timing of them, seem impossible for us to accomplish our goals and ambitions, we must remember where our accomplishments come from, the very things that go against us.  That is how we succeed and be the Captain of our lives.  That experience and "flight time" so to speak.  That is how we take off.  And with that, the word "impossible" is not an existence, only the excuse for a person not to want their plane of success to go in the air..





With those words in mind, this website has a plane lined up for take off..:

I am very happy to share that we are breaking into a new dawn and a new day.  Within the month, this blog/website will be expanding into broadcasting.  I will be going live over the Internet broad system with book reviews, views on current events in both aviation and non-aviation topics, amongst other topics.  If you haven't already, sign up for a free account at USTREAM as we just created our channel over there entitled, "Sailing The Skies"  Please stay tuned on our social media and this blog for updates on dates and times of our broadcast.  

We look forward to seeing you there!

Have a great rest of the week!

"Understanding Air France 447"

RATING:
FIVE STARS
*****


Looking into the eye's of the passenger profile photos of some of those on board after having read this book, I could never begin to understand what was going through their minds during their final thoughts and moments alive on aboard Air France flight 447.

A 26 year old doctor from Ireland, an 11 year old student from the United Kingdom, 29 year old Brazi…

Flight For Sanity

"While it’s tempting to play it safe, the more we’re willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took."
-Frasier

FORD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Grand Rapids, Michigan
April, 2017

With seconds to go, I was making a mad dash down the concourse.  Of course my gate had to be the last one at the end.  The chances of me making the next flight out after to the concrete jungle were growing very slim.  In the distance, I could hear a small boy ask his mom, "Why is that man running?"  Barely hearing anything over the sounds of rushing blood and adrenaline, I heard the mother explain that I was running to catch a plane.
As I ran, I flew into my subconscious and thought about the times where I wish I had ran towards something, risking everything valuable in life because of something I believe in, instead running of away from something due to fear of how bad it would impact my life.   Risks that were worth taking, that I never…

She's on her way!

FRIDAY FOTO

It's Friday and the weekend is here.  And yes, Darby is on her way for another visit.  I see her flight on the stormy horizon which will be coming to our West Michigan mailbox soon.  A flight, we have been waiting for, for a very long time.
We are proud to say, that we've made an extra room for her in our library among the series next to "Flight For Control", "Flight For Safety", "Flight For Survival" and  next to the motivational work "Flight To Success: Be The Captain of Your Life."
Also sitting in our office library is "I Am Awesome! The ABCs of Being Me" a children's book which not only will be sitting in our office library, but in the library of some of the local elementary schools in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
"Flight for Sanity" has just been released, but to get the full effect of it, it is highly recommended to read the first three in the series.  For sure, leaving a comment of each of the novels …
