Yesterday I shared with you my paddleboarding adventures on the lake during my stay-cation, and today I have an even more thrilling tale to tell!
Last week I took to the air for my very first flight ever!
Now as you may already know, I’m not your average dog, so when I took to the air I didn’t just book a flight on some commercial jet for a week-long getaway. No instead I decided to fly in style by hopping aboard my own single engine plane – aka the Piper Archer II.
I didn’t have to look too far to find a pilot for my first flight either, because my mom’s dad has been a recreational pilot since 1986, and I was to be his very first canine passenger.
Being that this was my first flight, I dressed in the best piloting attire I could find. I couldn’t risk looking like I didn’t know what I was doing.
I was pretty darn excited to take to the air, so much so that I even practiced my airplane yelling just in case it was anything like riding on a roller coaster.
As we took to the air I kept my eyes glued to the window – it was nothing like riding in a car!
I was fascinated by how tiny everything looked from the air, and the cars on the roads below looked just like little rodents scurrying all around.
We even flew over Marsh Creek Lake where I had taken my paddleboarding adventure the day before.
I was having so much fun looking out the window that I almost forgot we were so high in the air.
But then I caught sight of all the dials and buttons and nobs, and remembered that we weren’t
in kansas anymore firmly planted on the ground anymore.
The dials and buttons and nobs had me so excited that it made me want to get my pilots license too! Check it out as I help navigate the plane during a take off and landing:
After we landed I couldn’t stop beaming from ear to ear!
Flying in a single engine plane was one of the most exciting things I have ever done.
Who knew this super hero was born to fly!
So cross flying in the sky off my bucket list, because this dog has earned his wings! Maybe next time I’ll have to try helicopters!
