Ask the Pilot!

I don't think a day goes by that I'm not constantly asking my boyfriend questions about what it's like to be a pilot, how he handles certain situations in the air and what certain things mean.

Aviation fascinates me.

I've been flying since I was about 3 years old, flying by myself since roughly age 8 and, well, as you all know, I can't seem to get my head out of the clouds...literally.

On one of our very first dates, The Pilot took me flying over the skies of Daytona Beach on one of his flight lessons just before he graduated. Since then, we've taken to the skies for quite a few dates, a few of which he let me pilot the plane myself! (See picture in my blog header).

Part of me wonders if I could do it all over again, if I would have become a pilot. Since flying with him though, I definitely have the desire to one day get my private pilot's license because hey, flying is a lot of fun!

When I tell people that my boyfriend is a pilot, they usually bombard me with questions, many of which I can't answer, so I've decided to give all of you the opportunity to Ask the Pilot!

Have you ever wondered what makes a plane fly? Just what causes turbulence? What kind of schedule pilots work? What kind of routes they fly?

The pilot has kindly agreed to answer any and all questions you have about all things aviation...or anything else for that matter.

So, ask away! Leave any questions you have in the comments and I'll have The Pilot answer them in a post!

Have fun!


  1. What a great idea! I used to love flying as a little girl. Now, I panic a little each time! What do you do to keep your calm when something unexpected happens on a flight?

  2. these are so cute Christy. I want to know where the pilot's favorite place he's flown too.

  3. I just discovered your blog and I am very fascinated by your personal universe! The aviation, the running, the traveling...Pretty awesome! Congrats! xoxo

  4. I'd love to know why he wanted to become a pilot and what he loves most about it now that he is officially a pilot!

  5. How fun! :) Is he nervous flying? Especially when you are in the airplane? :)

  6. How does he stay awake / alert during longer flights? Does he get nervous in bad weather?

  7. How does he handle turbulence? Does it ever freak him out?
