It really pays to have a pilot for a roommate. My roommate Nate was generous to take a couple of us out with him last night. He needed to keep practicing his night flying, so we headed out right as the sun was setting. Our friend and former roommate Michael got to join us for his first ever flight in a small plane!
One of the best things about Michael is his smile. He’s always smiling.
Spectacular sky as we were getting ready for takeoff.
Portrait of man who takes his flying seriously. Here Nate is checking some important fluid level pre-flight.

First time for me flying in a Skyhawk. It’s a sweet plane!
View of the from the backseat, just after takeoff, with the last bit of sunlight in the background. I love the reflection of the city lights on the underside of the wing.
We flew to Lebanon for some practice takeoffs and landings. Here’s the view of the cockpit as we approached the runway.
