    Hey...looks like you had fun! Welcome to the world of aviation. I'm a pilot as well (commercial - instrument rated). In fact I'll be a flight instructor soon! Enjoy your new hobby!

    Hehe thanks for the nice comments! It was great yeh... it was just one of those unusual presents but now I really hope you save up some extra money and I'm seriously thinking about learning fully!

    The picture was taken by my boyfriend who was allowed to come up with us! Bless him he even made a video of it haha!

    Meysha my advice would be stay calm, I don't get nervous about this sort've thing (and plenty nervous about other things!)and I guess that helped, I was allowed to take off and everything! Its a great feeling!

    Oh and if you have an iffy stomach like mine take some travel sickness pills or something... man I felt rough after!! :lol:

    Have a great lesson!

    These photos have a great journalistic approach. I think I am more amazed that you go to take pictures on a plane rather than the photos themselves. But I do love the photos I think they are great. What a great experience
