Not much time or energy to write much at the moment but I will say this… Flying in the clouds is awesome! Currently I’m in instrument flight training and fly under the hood for damn near the entire flight. (Can’t see outside). On one of the approaches today my instructor said I could look outside for a moment. Nothing but the tops of clouds! We’ve all seen pictures I’m sure of what it looks like but nothing quite compares to being the one in a little airplane flying through those awesome puffy white things.
Aside from learning to deal with physiological confusion with the instruments, body sensations and visual illusions, it was one of the best moments I’ve had yet while flying. It truly is what dreams are made of. It almost felt like I could have stepped out of the airplane and taken a walk on those cloud tops.
Anyone want to go for a flight?
