Aviation Day 2015

Once upon a time...


Aviation started with a dream...





Which was implemented.
When it was implemented, it took flight.



When that first flight happened..  That dream spread and attached itself to many other people worldwide, like splitting atoms....


JFK, Terminal 7.












Myself included...

Bound for AMS, 17 June 1996.  Northwest Boeing 747.  My first flight.
The next morning in AMS, I was ready for more.. 

When we acquire this dream, we will do whatever it takes to make it a reality...





I wish everyone, and I mean everyone, out there, to take a flight, if you haven't already done so.  

You will never regret it.


Aviation will never be a hobby nor a job, nor a chore.  It will be your blood which will passionately flow through your body, mind, and into your soul for the rest of your life.





And we have only those to thank. The people who inspire us to fly.... 



The pilots you have met that have told you never to give up.  The skies are only the beginning...




Always have a positive rate of climb above the weather. 
I personally want to wish everyone out there...





Fly SAFE!

Jeremy.

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.

Anything

Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience. Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand on your own two feet. 
Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion. 
Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back.  
Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love. 
Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear. Anything out of your control is teaching you how to let go.



Life is a lesson.  Passing the exam is up to us.
Take to this Monday with the lessons above.  Do your homework no matter how long it takes.  Passing the test will be one of the greatest achievements you will ever accomplish.

Flight For Sanity

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…
