On Saturday, April 21st, I suggest you stay clear of the Atlanta air space. Because I will be all up in it. You know, just flying a plane. No big deal.
I have scheduled a "discovery flight" lesson with SkyBound Aviation out of Peachtree Dekalb Airport. As of this moment I am 50% terrified and 50% excited. But I'm sure my fear will eventually win out, turning me into a walking ball of nerves on a bad acid trip by around April 19th.
Being me, I of course requested the most experienced pilot they have on staff, Dr. No Crash McSafety. Who graduated from Harvard Princeton Flying School with a degree in Not Dying. Hopefully he won't be weirded out when I show up wearing a diaper.
Twenty-nine days until I take off! In a tiny plane like the one pictured above! I'm just going to keep using exclamation points to feign excitement!
