Flying is something you have to have a passion for. Not anyone can say they can't wait for that moment when the wheels leave the ground and you are doing something that a person has always dreamed of doing. How many people can say that they fly over the Grand Canyon, or the wheat fields of Saskatchewan or the beauty of Lake Superior as the pilot in command? You have not lived until you have soared off into sunsets you can't even begin to image. Or the feeling of looking out over the world at night from 9,000 feet and seeing the lights of Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto or New York. But perhaps the greatest feeling of being a pilot is the absolute freedom you feel. You are on top of YOUR world. The sky IS the limit. And coming in on finals in the last waining moments of the day and knowing that in the morning you get to get up and do it all over again, I can't think of a better job in the world.......
