My Flying Days
I was assigned to the Air Traffic Control field While in the military. Being in that field I had the opportunity to do some flying which gave me the bug. After getting out of the military I joined the FAA which allowed me to use my VA benefits for my flight training. Through that I was able to get my commercial, instrument, flight instructor and multi-engine ratings. One year I commercial fished on Lopez Island so I purchased a share of the above airplane for transportation from Wenatchee where I was working at the time. From then on whenever I traveled from Wenatchee I would usually fly since there are few direct routes from Wenatchee by car. This was a convenient way to get to places. A couple of years we had spent Christmas Eve at home and Christmas with family in Klamath Falls. When I was transferred to Seattle I no longer needed the airplane so that ended my flying days.
