7 Sights That Will Put A Smile On Any Pilot's Face

Who doesn't love seeing this...

3) Sunset from above the clouds

Viewing the sunset from above the clouds is an experience everyone should have. And it makes what you do that much more enjoyable.


4) Flying near a city skyline

Flying around a skyline, especially at night, is absolutely spectacular. Viewing the city lights from 2,000' gives you a different perspective that only a few people get to experience.

Its quite an incredible feeling lining up to the runway from 5 miles away perfectly intercepting the glide path.

6) Seeing your favorite aircraft land in front of you

It's a remarkable sight seeing a wide body jet land directly in front of you as you're holding short of the runway.

7) Seeing your passengers smile

Nothing makes a flight feel more rewarding then seeing your passengers smile. Aviation is an incredible industry, and being able to share it with others makes it even better.
