I’m always looking for new hobbies and aviation has always been on the list. My fear plus my mother saying, “no no don’t you dare” meant I never really thought about it too seriously.

A few weeks ago, we went back up to the ski house to relax and take in the fall weather. Saturday was absolutely gorgeous out so I took a walk over to see the renovated airport. Yes, at the end of our block there’s a private airport. Some people fly in for recreational purposes, some to go to golf club and others do so because it’s the quickest way to get to their winter home. I’d love to fly from Manhattan to Vermont….but first I need to buy a plane. (Note to self, add that to your Hanukkah wish list).

Once I got to the airport it, was empty but there was one gentleman wiping down his plane. I got the nerve up and went over to talk to him. He was very helpful and provided me with lots of information, including several instructional packets.

This all got me to thinking, what would I wear to my lessons? Something comfortable obviously. An outfit with layers, as I was told, it can get warm in the cockpit on sunny days. So those suggestions are a good starting point. Here’s what I wore the day I visited the airport.
