Many of you may remember that I posted a little while back that my husband had FINALLY finished building his own airplane after 10 looonnnnggg years ... and I mean a REAL honest-to-goodness-fly-people-in-it airplane. SUPER cool.
Before a home-built airplane can be flown with passengers in it, it needs to have 40 test hours flown off (I guess to be sure it isn't gonna blow up or crash or anything, right??). A good friend of ours who has been a pilot forEVER was excited enough and kind enough to do this for us (since my husband hasn't flown for so long, he needed to pass a flight review before he could actually fly it, too!). Anywho, I diegress ... long story short, the test hours have finally been flown off and my hubby has finally finished doing his own flight review.
For his birthday this past Thursday, he and his brother flew in the plane to Oregon to help move my niece and nephew-in-law into their new apartment there (my nephew is starting law school in a couple of weeks). This was actually just an excuse for my hubby to fly his plane somewhere ... and was an excellent way for him to spend his birthday!!
I made him this little airplane card for his birthday (and YES, his plane IS actually red!!). Cute, eh?
And this is ME in the cockpit as I was getting ready to go on my very FIRST ride in our new plane. I can't WAIT to get my license so I can fly it by myself!!!
