Hard Work, But Worth It
Jan. 8, 10 p.m.: Today was another successful day in blissful San Marcos, Texas. The weather was pleasant and warm, very different from what I am used to in New York at this time of the year. Today was especially satisfying for me because it was the first time I got to fly since arriving here. I have been most looking forward to the experience of flying the aircraft. Besides flying for the first time, today was also very special because we had a visit from legendary flight instructors John and Martha King, who stopped at Skyport while on their way home to San Diego. They were kind enough to sign our ground training completion certificates that we stayed up completing the night before. Although we were very tired from hard work in the past couple of days, we knew that we had to complete the course and that our efforts would be worth it. All of us here are grateful to Senior Vice President Sharon DeVivo and pilot Emerson Allen for being great motivational speakers and supporting us on our journey through this process. I am having a great time surrounded by people who share a common goal and who love the same things I do. This has been a very fulfilling experience and I look forward to learning more as time progresses.
