About Me

I am blessed with an incredible marriage to my best friend - Dawn. We have two beautiful daughters - Sarah, who is 20 and in college and Molly, who is 16 and going to be a Junior. I couldn't be more proud of all the women in my life. I love music and have the awesome opportunity to use it each and every day at First Baptist Church, Woodward, OK. God has blessed me and my family way beyond our wildest dreams. My life long dream has been to learn to fly and God is allowing me to fulfill that dream. As of right now I have 13.2 hrs and am within about 7 hrs from soloing. Dear God Help me!

Flying Update

I have completed another FAA requirement. Last night(12-04-08)I did my cross-country night flight. It was really awesome! Our route was to Fairview and the cool thing was as soon as we got on the East edge of Woodward you could already see the beacon light at Fairview. Going was great and I stayed right on course.

On the trip back my instructor shut the lights off as to assimilate an electrical failure. I only got off course a little. I was able to correct the flight path and fly right into Woodward. It is easy to get disoriented up there, in the dark, unable to see landmarks and know for sure that what you see is really what you think it is. Thank the Lord, that someday when I fly with a license, I can take a GPS. Next is some more ground work and then a daytime cross country to Enid. One step at a time. It's great fun!

You are the most luscious, delicious pilot I've ever seen. Can I fly with you in the dark sometime?
