An Open Blog: Share Your Stories

Share your story, promote your blog or website, acquire new twitter followers, put yourself out there. I am making this blog a semi-open blog. If you have a story related to aviation that might inspire someone to begin flying, encourage those who have started, etc... feel free to email me with the story or information (preferably with some photos or videos) and I will be happy to post it for everyone to see. 

If you think someone might have a cool story to share, send this page to them. :) The more stories and experiences, the better! 


This could be a really cool opportunity to get some different perspectives into one place on this blog. You could include information about how you got to where you are (if you're a current pilot) or where you are in your training. 

Here are some ideas: (not limited to) It's totally up to you

  • General Background: What inspired you to start flying? Did you have any family members who flew?
  • When was your first solo and how did it feel? 
  • Why did you choose to turn flying into a career?
  • What has flying done for you?  
  • Describe what your current job is and why you enjoy flying. What different types of aircraft have you flown professionally? 
  • Name one (or more) thing(s) that you dislike about flying professionally.
  • Have you had any nerve-wracking moments while flying? 
  • Do you have any favorite routes or airports you fly into? 
  • Share one memorable experience you've had when flying that stands out to you. 
  • What are some of your aspirations for the future?

*note, you do not have to be a pilot or student pilot, just share something cool from flying!

If you have an interest in this, feel free to email me at The stories can be anonymous, profiled, related to your site, etc. It is really up to you! It could be a great way to promote your twitter, website, blog, or youtube channel--off site! Send me an email, and we can talk about what you'd like to add.

  1. Wait... you can't have them come here...they are supposed to help me on mine so I have time to write. lol. Great minds think alike. :)

    1. Haha thanks Karlene! I know you're busy with writing, which is awesome by the way!

      I might have something quick in mind that you, Eric, and Brad could help me with, but we'll see. And it's nothing that needs to be rushed anyways. I'll email soon :)

      I got a few messages on Twitter saying people would submit some stories for this, I'm excited to see!
