Aviation as we’d like it.

Today was fun for sure but one thing that struck me more that anything else was the service and availability of services for general aviation.

The airspace is full of everything from Cessna 150s to A320's, from Frank's Bellanca to executive jets and they are all using controlled airspace with an equal standing. The controllers are happy to oblige despite being very busy.

Unlike home, class C airspace doesn't require a clearance to enter, mealy establishment of two way communication. It's quite a different outlook on who deserves what and who gets service. And it's all free. At least for now.

It's really aviation as we'd like it.

I live in New Zealand with my lovely wife Vicki along with our animals on a block of land in Helensville. Back in 1994 I had this crazy idea to build a plane. Since then its been a huge part of my life. My day job has varied over the years. I started out as a computer engineer and now I'm an airline pilot. You would think that would tire me of flying but airline flying isn't really flying. The small planes are fun and make me remember why I started flying in the first place. This blog is a demonstration of some of the crazy ideas that pop into my head from time to time. The way I see it, life is too short to not give these wild ideas a go. I don't mind if people think I'm crazy. I probably am.
