A FLY­ING READER, AND FU­TURE PI­LOT

Flying - - INBOX -

Our 2-year-old grand­daugh­ter and her fam­ily live about 3 miles away from a busy GA air­port that is un­der some Class B airspace. They are right on the cen­ter­line of the main par­al­lel run­way. She loves the air­planes and is happy to point them out as they tra­verse the skies. Even when she’s in the house, she points to the sky and her eyes light up when she hears the hum­ming of an air­craft some­where over­head. So, when I handed her my lat­est edi­tion of Fly­ing, she was fas­ci­nated and couldn’t get enough of point­ing out every air­plane in the is­sue. I hope the seeds of avi­a­tion are planted and grow with her. One of my ear­li­est mem­o­ries as a hu­man be­ing is see­ing a clas­sic Cub on floats. Our grand­daugh­ter’s fa­vorite color is yel­low. Grow, seeds, grow! Tom Deml via email
