Up, up and away!
Holton, my 17 year old, received his private pilot's license two weeks ago. He has worked so hard and for years toward this so I am very proud. He can now fly small planes with passengers without his instructor. I was totally thrilled when he asked me to meet him at the airport to be his first official passenger. I temporarily forgot my sickening fear of heights.....for about a minute. Although I was totally dramatic and pretty much had him turn around as soon as we got started, it was a great experience. I did tell him that I was glad that I had never gone before because he would probably not have been allowed to continue training! So, here's to private pilot Holton! I must include this picture of the last time I was his passenger. He was two! Where have the years gone?
