This was the most fun thing I've ever done! Rode in a Piper Cherokee 180. Nothing special, just tooled around ofer the Finger Lakes of Western New York. It was so beautiful and exhilerating... Pilot let me take the yoke, and I learned firsthand the difficulty of keeping on a steady heading at a steady altitude. I did not want to return to earth again, except to experience the landing.
I'm going to start taking flight lessons now. I don't have a ton of money and I may never get my license, but it'll be worth it just to be up there!
