Learning to Fly...

My first flight as a student pilot was on a cool Texas morning, on January 19, 1991. I flew from/to San Antonio International Airport (Wright Flyers flight school) in an old Cessna 150. For the next several months I completed ground school, passed the written test and continued my flying as a student pilot. During that period, I moved to Dallas and continued my flight instruction at Addison Air Training (based at Addison Airport).
