Today I am sharing my life of Flying, while traveling ten months out of the year with a aviation company. Hubby and I were a team, were traveled around in the motor home, from airport to airport, to city to city, from Oklahoma to Virginia to Florida and all states in between. We had 10-12 employees, which were pilots, ground crew, and trucks to haul the granular fertilizer to each airport. We fertilized pine trees for major timber companies, with a fertilizer, like you would put on your yard. In the first photo is an Air Tractor Airplane with the truck placing the fertilizer in the Air Tractor.
I love flying in small airplanes, when you are up above the clouds it is so beautiful and peaceful. I knitted a scarf while flying home in this white airplane.The white airplane is an Experimental Airplane, I flew in from Florida to Mississippi. As you can see this airplane is not much bigger than a car.
One April, on my Birthday, our crew went together and paid for me to go flying in a yellow Float Plane. Which has pontoon’s to allows the pilot to land in the water. We flew around the ocean and landed in the Swanee River twice. While floating in the airplane along the river, people came out along the river RV Parks and waved and took our picture. Sure wish I had one of those photo’s of us floating in the river. This was a lot of fun.
I do not have a photo of the two seat-er Airplane, but I got to take off and fly it in the air. It was so much fun. No I did not land it. lol I also got to go flying in Mississippi in a Ultralight aircraft, The wind is in your face, so glasses are so needed. Your feet are dangling in the air. I had to be talked into getting in this one. lol
It is so beautiful to fly in these small planes, I think everyone should get to do this at least one in a lifetime. I flown in many commercial jets, but it is nothing compared to flying in a small plane.
The Corporate Office I worked for, in the accounting department, flew us down in a small four seat er airplane to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for a convention. Hubby sat in the co-pilot seat and had a blast. We thought this would be the last time we would fly in a small aircraft. One year later we were working for an aviation company.
DRUM ROLL PLEASE!
