Guest waltz Posted September 26, 2008 Share Posted September 26, 2008 Hello! I have had one lesson in an Air Borne Classic Flexwing Trike with a rotax 582 engine. So I don't know much about flying or Aircraft I am 51 years of age , kinda late to get started but better late then never. I am in Far North Queensland Australia, I love it even though it has regional/rural issues like no show rooms not much in the way of choice for second hand craft, tech and mechanical people are not in abundance, still I wouldn't live anywhere else. My Instructor has a gazzillion hours up and read my personality well, my first hour in a flexwing trike was a sublime and yet invigorating experience,it was as if I had imbibed the elixir of eternal smiling, after the climb up from take off we level out at 1,000 ft and I start having a good look around. I look down, and then out at the horizon then notice some puffy little clouds a bit higher an to our left, then bingo I get a smile that splits my face from ear to ear and it doesn't fade, even hours later when I have got home, I am still walking round grinning like a loon, magic just magic. That first lesson was a couple of days ago and when I start thinking about that airtime I just start smiling all over again. I am going to get my ticket, I just have to drink me some more of that "Potion of Eternal Smiling". So anyway I hope to learn about it from them that know :) Cheers All Walter Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
