Fly-by Friday

Fly-by Friday, indeed.  This week flew by at supersonic speeds.   It's been crazy, but being I also posted a lot this week, I thought I would put the whole week worth of blogging into one posting for a quick wrap up and reference.

  • Monday, August 17th: SUCCESS was all about Success by building bridges, not burning them.
  • Tuesday, August 18th: TUESDAY TRIVIA part II, the first Tuesday Trivia is up for grabs and if you read the comments section, you will find out what's in it for you, should you answer the SIDs and STARs correctly.  The second part, the question for this week, is from Karlene Petitt's book "Flight For Safety."  Kathryn Jacobs gives a very interesting analogy with a punch at the end.  Do you know the answer?  Click here, read the question along with the comments section, and answer correctly by replying in the comments section.  Answers are coming faster than you know it.
  • Wednesday, August 19th: AVIATION DAY!  You all make it what it is.  From the propulsion engineers, interior/aircraft designers, to the pilots and cabin crew.  You are why I take to the skies.
  • Friday, August 21st: 

It wouldn't be a Friday without a Friday Foto:




Have a great weekend, everyone and be sure to read up for Tuesday Trivia!  

Fly safe,

Jeremy.

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.

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."

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…

Second To The Right by Zach Neuman
Genre: Fantasy Rating 5 Stars

To the other orphans, it was paradise.  To David, it was a prison.  Behind the dark walls and black bars where Latin might as well have been the official language, David knew that his fate was sealed with a seal that he knew he had to break and break quickly.  He was determined to see the sunlight that was being blocked by the walls of St. Augustine's.  Father Kenneth gave him the throttle for his plan to escape - to take off.
What lay outside of those walls he was trapped behind was an unforgiving world to which he would have to learn new skills in order to survive.  Skills which in his wildest dreams he never thought he would never have to learn, nor use.
What was most enjoyable about this book is the fact that the story about David's determination relates to many aspects of some of my personal life journeys.  Some of these journeys I have written about before, others, I will leave to your imagination as to what t…
