"I buy rides in airplanes often and have been the passenger in aircraft from Piper Arrows to 1932 Travel Air biplanes, a Stearman Model 75 biplane and once aboard the B-17 Aluminum Overcast. This was the first time I've ever sat in the pilot's seat and experienced controlling an aircraft. I am now determined to obtain my pilot's license within the year thanks to this experience."
