She did it!

by Renee on October 10, 2010

A few posts back I mentioned that thanks to Jack, my daughter Ali would be taking her first flight lesson. Well, today was the day! It was a picture perfect fall afternoon in NE Ohio, and we headed up to Burke Lakefront Airport for her introductory lesson, with Pilot Jen of Premier Flight Academy.

Jen let Ali work the controls for the most part, and though my heart was thumping hard when she took off, I couldn’t stop smiling watching her soar above blue Lake Erie into azure skies. Here she is, with her Grandpa Jack’s headset–he sent them to her for luck for her maiden flight.

You know flying is in your blood to as well as the beer? Jack and I once flew up to the Boonville Brewery in a tiny little Piper 140. He loves to fly!

Yes, Jack inspired Ali to try it!
