As a flight instructor, I am often asked the question, "How old do you have to be to start learning to fly?" The short answer to the question is that there is no minimum age for a child to begin learning to fly. The longer answer is a bit more complicated and I will attempt to discuss that here.

This summer, my family and I have decided to take a number of mini-vacations centered around our enjoyment of roller coasters and amusement parks. During the month of June, we have had the opportunity to visit 2 parks outside of our home park. On one trip, we elected to use a general aviation airplane; on the other, we elected to drive our mini-van. This blog will compare those trips.

We're all required to log our flight times and landings to prove FAA currency, but this only tells part of the story of a flight. Here you'll learn how you can record a more memorable experience from your flight by using a smartphone or portable cockpit camera to capture the sights and sounds.

June 2, 2005. I had just landed N73028 in a 15 knot crosswind on runway 5 at OGG. "Maui Ground, Skyhawk 73028 to the Tee Hangars." "Aloha 028 taxi ahead on Alpha, left on Golf cross runway 2 then straight on Kilo to the hangars" Yep, you heard it right, I was on the ground at Kahului airport on the island of Maui in the state of Hawaii. No, I didn't fly there from the mainland, my flight had originated from OGG earlier that morning. This was one of the most exciting flights of my life.
