Live the dream…

I was born and raised in South Louisiana. I went to schools in the area and raised my children here.  When I was growing up my father struggled to make ends meet but we were happy. Traveling outside of Louisiana was unthinkable. And flying in an airplane, why that was for other folks. I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that I would fly in an airplane, much less pilot one!

About twenty years ago I had the grand opportunity to fly in a Cessna 150 that belonged to the owner of our hunting lease.  I was hooked. I began working extra hours at my job just to spend time in the air. It was so peaceful and beautiful. It seemed like all the world’s problems would melt away every time I got behind the yoke of an airplane.

Aviation opened a whole new world for me. I was able to travel to places I had never dreamed of and to meet really great people. I continued on to get my Instrument rating and commercial certificates and later I decided to get a multi engine rating. Eventually I got my Flight Instructor certificate.

Now, as an Instructor I am able to share the dream of flight!  I get excited to see others “Live the dream”. I did, and you can too!
