Living and Breathing Your Desire to Fly
When you first go to a flight school and spend some time with one of the instructors to find out if learning to fly is for you, he or she will commonly take you up on a demo flight where you get to sit in the pilot’s seat for take-off, during the flight and landing. And while the expert is doing all the work, you get the feel for being in the pilot’s seat of an airplane, maybe for the first time. For many of us, that first flight is a transformation that will take you from someone curious about flying to a true believer with that deep inner drive to learn to fly whatever it takes.
If the flight instructor who took you on that first flight knows what he is doing, you will walk away from that first experience with an armload of information including the curriculum for ground school, the costs of training for your pilot’s license, and a layout of the time commitment involved. It might be a little overwhelming when you get home and start looking over all of that material. But if that inner drive to become a certified pilot has birthed the love of flying in you, you will then and there determine that you are going to put in the time and conquer the knowledge so you too can become part of that special society of people who can fly an airplane.
You should make that moment when you are filled with determination to learn to fly and make it one of those big memories you often go back to. That is because if you really want to be a great pilot and to get there as quickly as you responsibly can, you should be prepared to make getting through flight training and learning this amazing new skill the absolute top priority in your life for the weeks ahead as you go through the learning process.
For one thing, the training to learn to fly is not cheap. You are taking training from specialized experts whose time is not cheap and flight schools provide the airplanes, gas, supplies, and insurance so you can take their airplanes up for learning flights. You cannot get a pilot’s license without flying several times a week throughout your training period. So be prepared to pay several thousand dollars for top-notch flight training. But if you can make that investment, and you put in the time to get the work done, you are virtually guaranteed that at the end of the curriculum, you will earn your pilot’s license.
And just as you take into account the financial investment, you should be prepared to make the time investment to learn to fly a top priority for you. Whether you are taking classroom lessons or your lesson that day is to take the aircraft up, you should be prepared to be at the flight school a couple of hours for each session. And to make progress, you should plan 2-3 lessons a week. In addition, there is the travel time to the school and time to study and prepare for the next time you are with the instructor.
There are a lot of resources you can use to conquer all of the new terminology and areas of knowledge you will have to become experts in to truly “become” a pilot. But look on that intimidating body of knowledge ahead as the mountain you have to climb to achieve this lofty goal. Then charge into that mountain and climb diligently every day. You can conquer that information if you study and give this passion of yours plenty of time. And the more you learn at home and during times when not at school, the faster you will progress.
Before you know it you will be taking the flight test for your pilot’s license. You will have put insufficient hours in the air and your knowledge will be rock solid. And when you walk out of that testing and you conquered it all, you will look down at that pilot’s license and you have every reason to feel proud. You will have not only finished a course of study, but you will also have changed into a completely different person. You are now and will forevermore be – a pilot.
How air travel affects your body + how you feel about it
They feel lousy during the flight and then have trouble recovering for days after landing. One reason plane travel seems so stressful is that we notice the negative effects more than the positive ones. We feel bad during the flight, but we feel good as soon as we land—usually because we now know the plane won’t crash. But there are other effects as well: subtle changes to our moods and our thinking that don’t depend on whether or how long we were in danger. I don’t know how it affects other people, but I get jet lag.
I don’t mean you wake up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep because your internal clock is off. I mean that when my plane lands, I feel like I’ve either been up for three days straight or else just gotten off a cross-country bus tour with a detour into a vodka distillery.
It’s not a good feeling. It is odd that humans can travel at speeds approaching those of sound without discomfort, but crossing time zones gives you the spins. The reason may be that traveling at supersonic speed doesn’t give your body time to catch up with your eyes; you see new scenery, then your body catches up. But time zone changes are something your body should be able to handle on its own.
Incredible quotes about travel and aviation
— Henry David Thoreau “Once you have flown, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been, and there you long to return.”
— Leonardo da Vinci “To fly is everything. It is an end in itself.”
— Otto Lilienthal “The Wright Brothers were not supermen. They did not achieve what they did through miracles. In fact, they were just intelligent, hardworking individuals with a great dream–and a little bit of luck.”
— Chuck Yeager “The Wright brothers flew because they flew because they could not help it—because man cannot put a limit on his imagination and his will.”
― Walter Lord We are still in an era when airplanes are thinner than our dreams. What was the first airplane trip like? It was terrifying, amazing… and utterly unforgettable. Here are some quotes from pilots, passengers, and observers of the first century of flight. “As I approached the flying machine, I felt a tremor of alarm.”
– Wilbur Wright, after his first flight “We were caught by a gust of wind, which threw us to the ground…”
– Wright pilot Eddie Broadwick “The sensation I experienced while running along beside one of these monsters was not unlike that which I should expect to feel if I were suddenly shot dead and found myself flying through space.”
– Annie Taylor, the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel
Amazing Quotes About Flying
The Wright brothers changed all that. In 1903 they started the era of flight. In 1903, with the flight of 120 feet in 12 seconds at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, they launched a new era in human history. That era is still going on a century later. The world we live in today is different from what it would have been if the Wright brothers had not flown. At Kitty Hawk, they opened up a new era in which anything seemed possible.
An era of flight has been with us for 100 years now. We take it so much for granted that it is hard to understand how amazing it really is.
We have gone from being creatures who could not fly to being creatures who cannot help flying. Today flying is so commonplace that when we see a bird in our yard we do not think how miraculous it is that it can fly but rather how unsociable of it to just sit there and stare at us instead of flying away.
But the truth is that flight is still an astonishing thing. It’s just that now we are the astonishing thing because we can do what birds cannot. “The Wright Brothers are two of the most famous men in the history of the world. Everyone knows their names, but no one knows their first names.” – Tom Wolfe
