A Great Part of Aviation

So many things draw me to aviation: the view, the excitement, the challenge. However one thing in particular I’ve grown to love since becoming a pilot is the immense feeling of family. Every airport or FBO I’ve ever entered has been a friendly place filled with passionate, happy people. Everyone in this field loves what they do, and can connect with others who are a part of it unlike any other profession I can think of. I’ve had countless exciting conversations with strangers about aviation. One included the private pilots of Tim Tebow when he was in Louisville giving a talk to a local church. Another was with a pilot who had flown multiple United States presidents and CEOs around. No segregation exists in flying. Whether you’re a pilot, mechanic, man, woman, marshaller, air traffic controller-it doesn’t matter. We’re all bound together by a network that we love to be a part of. I think this aspect of flying is fantastic, and I never tire of the genuine friendliness that seems to be disappearing in the rest of the world. I got to thinking about this because my twin brother is about to rush for a fraternity this semester, and I thought about how I would probably never be able to be a part of something like that. But then I thought of this relationship between all pilots-especially at EKU-and I don’t care anymore. I believe we have something better, and I’m happy about that.
