TIME FOR SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT FLYING

FLYING IS FUN
FLYING IS TRAVELING
EVERY FLIGHT IS A BRAND NEW ADVENTURE
BUT FLYING IS ALSO PREPARING, PLANNING, WORRYING,
WORKING HARD AND SOMETIMES FLIRTING WITH CERTAIN RISKS
FLYING IS CONCENTRATION AND EXPECTING THE UNEXPECTED

IT IS SELDOM RELAXING
IT REQUIRES EXPERIENCE, IMPROVISATION AND DECISIVENESS.
IT BRINGS THE BEST OF YOURSELF TO TOP.
IT KEEPS YOUR MIND YOUNG AND MOTIVATES TO LOSE WEIGHT.
IT BROUGHTENS YOUR WORLD AND DEEPENS YOUR PERSONALITY.
IT LETS YOU MEET NEW FRIENDS AND, AT LEAST IN YOUR MIND,
"BOLDLY GO WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE"

IT CAN GIVE A TREMENDOUS SATISFACTION AFTER A GOOD FLIGHT
IT CAN ALSO LEARN TO FEEL VERY CLOSE THE RELATIVITY OF LIFE ITSELF
AND MOTIVATES TO ENJOY AND APPRECIATE EVERYDAY-LIFE

I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER MY INSTRUCTOR BRUNO (†) SAYING :
"GOOD PILOTS DO NOT EXIST, ONLY OLD PILOTS EXIST"

HE WAS RIGHT.
