    Dang it. I knew something was off about that canopy. Also explains why you couldn't turn around.

    "Look at me, I'm an SWA pilot and I can identify cities simply by the clouds over them."

    We get it, you're one of the cool kids.





    Oh, wait, I noticed there was a third picture on the ground...you've probably been there before.

    Carry on...

    I added a poll at the top of the thread just for fun! I'm curious about the aviation community we have in here.

    I started working on my private pilots license years ago(early 90's), but never finished. I was young and not disciplined enough to follow through. I was semi interested in trying to make a career out of flying. I don't know why I stopped. When I was flying it was in a Piper Tomahawk out of Wellsville airport in NY.

    I got my private cert, tried for IFR and wigged out under the goggles they made me wear, and then just sort of let everything lapse since I had no one to fly with and no money to do so.

    Thought about going to be a crew dog for charter freight, but a few of the gigs I was looking at turned out to not be so great for a variety of reasons. I also didn't wanna move to Florida where a lot of these operations are based out of.

    I'll add it. I figured it would fall under commercial, but you're right.
