Flying, for me, was not a choice, it was a passion, it was going to happen to me no matter what. I started with an enormous bag of luck, and enough common sense to make up for having no experience. Now, I have lots of experience, 99.99% of it awesome, and not to have been missed, My common sense is still common, but I think I've spent most of my luck.

So now, with 40 very happy years behind me, I'm trying to put in place checks to be sure that I can truly enjoy the rest of my flying, and thereafter, be around to look back upon it with fondness.

I have seen the world, befriended excellent people with the same passion, and felt the air through the controls of 80 different types of aircraft, I would not have missed it for anything!
