Before we could start our big road-trip dream of driving across North America, Steve wanted to accomplish one of his Mondo Beyondo dreams – becoming a licensed pilot. When I met Steve two years ago, this had been a dream of his for quite some time. He started taking lessons and has been flying every chance he gets ever since. Yesterday Steve had his big flying test with a licensed examiner from Transport Canada – and he passed!
Here’s a picture that Steve took of himself on his first solo flight:
In case you were worried, like me, that he took this photo while in flight, he assures me that no, he was in fact landed at the Kingston airport when this photo was taken. It’s up to you whether you believe him or not…I did. But, I am the panicky wife who thinks he’s going to crash and meet his firey doom every time he walks out the door to go flying.
So we are now busily organizing, packing and getting ready for the trip!
