Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. We who live in the United States have a lot to be grateful for. Having lived briefly in another country, I can tell you firsthand that we have so much more than we even realize. We are truly fortunate.
Among my many blessings, I am intensely grateful for the freedom to fly. America has a very good aerospace system, and offers the pilot many more options to achieve personal flight than most other countries. Learning to fly here can cost a fraction of what it costs in other nations, and we have the freedom to move more or less at will through the national airspace.
Be thankful for what you’ve got, and especially thankful for the freedom of flight.
Have a happy thanksgiving!
