It was all about the thrill of flying. After only 15 hours of practice, I was able to do my first solo takeoff. My instructor complimented me and said, shockingly, that he had yet to meet anyone who could fly an airplane so easily during training.
These are some images that I took during my initial flight training session.
Up close and spectacular view of the Canadian Rockies (June 2011)
One of my most memorable experience was seeing the incredible Rockies in all their glory. It was a great blessing to be so close to the majestic Canadian Rockies. For me, a training flight easily turned into a beautiful expedition.
This was my second flight experience. It was just a few feet above the ridge, on my side (at a tilt), and I felt it. Cool, amazing, terrifying, but in reality, I felt like I had experienced many emotions all at once.
