What has been your most memorable flying experience and why?
As I may have already told you before, operating flight simulators is one thing, but operating a real life-sized aircraft is another. In whatever little history I have with flying, the most memorable flying experience I can recall is the time when I flew my solo slight. The experience was stimulating and frightening at the same time. I knew I was very ready, but the thrill of flying an aircraft all by yourself can be sometimes daunting. Nevertheless, my flight was considered satisfactorily successful by my instructor as I smoothly landed. Soon after this experience, I got another couple of chances at flying, and that made flying solo feel like a cakewalk.
