Default Re: tell a Model A related story

This is one of 2 personal stories.

Probably my last flying job. And itís a good one. I have not done a great deal of cropdusting in the last 2 years because we are in drought. So retirement is now forced on me. Well Iíve done 52 years of it but I do miss it. The money too.
This job is to teach my 16 year old granddaughter Milly to fly. I taught her brother and only last week he passed his RAAF graduation flight test. I taught my 2 sons 30 years ago. This young one is going to get an easier ride because she will learn in a nose wheel aeroplane whereas the others all learned on a tail wheel which requires more skill and attention.
Learning to fly can be mentally demanding and draining not only on a learner but the teacher as well. I need that nap at dinner time and donít need rocking to sleep at night. But teaching your kids and now grandkids is rewarding and so is watching them through their flying careers. In fact watching all your kids through their respective careers is rewarding. Iím sure Iím not Robinson Crusoe am I. ?

I know many things,
But I don't know everything,
Sometimes I forget things.

And there are times when I have a long memory. is offline   Reply With Quote
