I am the happiest human on the planet when I'm flying.   I  have a Private pilot license with roughly 250 hours, and currently working on my Instrument Rating.  If I had known it was going to be so much fun and challenging I would have started earlier!   All my hours so far have been on Cessna 152,Cessna 172, and Cessna 182.   One time I had a chance to briefly fly a Beech Bonanza V22.  I look forward to doing my Multi-engine and Commercial ratings next, perhaps even my Certified Flight Instructor rating.  And maybe, just maybe, if I get enough hours, I could make flying a career.    One of my ongoing goals as I pursue these ratings is to land at every single airport in Florida.   I'm rapidly approaching the point where to make a touchdown at a new airport it takes at least one hour flying time.  Night flying is absolutely incredible.   God blessed me by letting me survive an airplane accident one time.
