Default My boy's first flight!

After 3 year's of building excitement and hype and waiting so the boy could enjoy this flight as much as me, I finally took my son Xander for a flight on Sunday. The wait was worth it! He had a fantastic time and was an exceptionally well behaved passenger.

Wow, that's beautiful, Paul and Xander. It was worth "coming out of hibernation" to say you made my night. The vision of flying my grandchildren is at least one of my motivators to keep building, even when the building gets tough. Thanks again, Paul.

Very nice pictures! Flying with your son - as the years go by, your shoulder room gets less and less. Daughters, not so much.

Default It looks like great times!

As they say in the south, it looks like "The acorn doesn't fall far from the tree".
