Re-Discovering Aviation…

As a kid I always had a thing for speed.  I raced go-karts as a kid, stock cars as a teenager and started flying before I could drive.  I enjoyed flying so much I turned it into a career.  Like any career path you must climb the ladder to achieve greatness.  In aviation that ladder starts in general aviation.  As a flight instructor for 3 years I was interlaced in general aviation on a daily basis.  Having left general aviation for “bigger and better” in the commercial industry,  I lost touch with the roots of aviation – the fun aspect of flying.  Discover Aviation Days in Blaine, Minnesota brought me back and helped me re-discover why I started flying.  Now don’t get me wrong…I do love my current job as it presents an amazing office view every day, but this…this is why I started flying.

The show had an impressive display of old war-birds, a museum (Gold Wing Flying Museum), safety seminars, hangar dance and the traveling tribute to American Veterans.  I’ll let the photos speak for themselves!  More images from this and other aviation related events are available in my Aviation portfolio.
