Discovery Flight - My First Flight Lesson
我的梦想很多。虽然大部分的梦想更像是做梦，但我还是愿意尽力去尝试。最近想到了开飞机，正好有朋友也很响应，附近就有很好的学校（Executive Flyers Aviation, located at Hanscom Field, Bedford, MA）。刚好这个black Friday是个大好无风的晴天，就选择了今天。因为更喜欢安静和独处，所以我从来都不在这一天购物，开一次飞机倒是很让人兴奋的主意。
开始学习之前先寒风凛凛地cool一把(飞机型号:CESSNA 172 SkyHawK，Such a small plane！)
听教练讲解对飞机的各种检查项目(Instructor explains/demos pre-flight inspections)。没想到检查油需要那么仔细。两边的机翼下还有机身下面都要在不同部位采集一点，然后看颜色。如果有虫子，脏东西，气泡，或者颜色不对，都不行
Can't wait to get the feel as a pilot

It was a crisp cold day, we had to stay outside for extended time, that is the only drawback. But I had a lot of fun for the one hour lesson. We are already looking forward to the next lesson, taking it just for fun occasionally. Hopefully next time we will catch the beautiful sunset.

Thanks for the comment. I never expected such overwhelming reactions from people, I thought I just did something unique yet ordinary that everyone can do.
Guess you are right, mostly we say a lot with no action. I am happy I did take action, and am proud of myself.
It is also a blessing having a friend share common interest who wanted to come with me to make it happen. Many times we need a little push from outside, don't we?
Next time should be in summer, since I was told you can fly with windows open in hot weather. Catching the sunset is another thing that I would love to experience.
Hope we can dance on ice together some day. I really want to sharpen my skating skills.

You are so cool!
If you want to do something make the time and make it happen. So many people have said "I would love to learn how to fly" and never get off the ground, but; you are actually doing it. Good for you.
Hope your spirits will fly higher than your plane.
