This aviation blog was initially, from 2011 through 2016, simply a journey log to record my way into some cockpits of the world. My spirit has always been to fly aircraft in the more exciting world of General Aviation – in my view, less automation and more actual flying. So, this blog tells my story – from zero flight hours to flying and on floats and in clouds at night. I love to go back to the basics of flight. I am an old school guy who likes to read charts and fly by compass and time.
This website has been changing direction since, and is slowly transforming into a GA-related news website. We’ll see where it goes. Most probably my writing will always lean towards aviation regulation, as this has become my expertise – I am this aviation regulation nerd you never thought would exist.
I would be happy to see comments from time to time. I happily answer your questions – feel free to ask!
