How I Learned to Fly
Once again, AVweb asked for your stories of flight training — and you came through for us! Read the best "learning to fly" stories here!
AVweb readers come in all shapes and sizes. When we asked you to send us your own tales of flight training, we were soon flooded with responses. We read them all, and the best ones are published here. We hope you'll get the same kick we do from reading them!
The offer, by the way, is a standing one: Simply write a 500- to 1,500-word story about how you learned to fly, and submit it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you care to attach a photo or three, thats even better. If we choose to publish it, you will get your proverbial fifteen minutes of fame plus a stylish AVweb cap! Please check out the rules before submitting your story.
