I’m excited these days about lots of things.
One – I’ve got a cool wife at home and she gets (tolerates) me.
Two – I was given the opportunity to present a safety seminar at the electric utility I work with. I complimented one of my collegues on a presentation he did, telling him how much it correlated with my experiences in aviation. One thing led to another, and I volunteered to deliver two presentations in each region related to aviation safety. I got paid to talk about aviation….. I think that one was on my bucket list.
Three – Mike has access to an SR22 and is taking me aloft now and again to keep my skills sharp. Thats cool. The timing is other-worldly. Truly. See number four.
Four – Another good friend asked me if I’d be interested in being an SR22 backup pilot for a private owner. Hell yeah! I have plenty of vacation and will work at keeping this opportunity alive. I’m pleased he considered me, but realistic in my expectations. I will prepare none-the-less.
Even if the fourth good thing noted doesn’t work – the dream is still alive.
Five- I was at a wedding recently and caught up with Harold – Manager of a jet center. Harold is hooking me up with an simulator school that uses Red Bird Sims. He also gave me an idea to develop a business. I’m thinking……. More later.
