The photographer: My coworker and co-pilot for the day, Vivek

The airplane: Cessna 172S

The mission: San Francisco Bay tour

The memory: As a new pilot, I’ve been nervous about going through class B airspace. Today was a perfect VFR day, and I took the plunge. I took a trip up the California coast past Half Moon Bay, across San Francisco, and then straight down highway 101 past KSFO. The controllers were fast and furious, but the flight was beautiful and uneventful. It felt great to get back to home base in Palo Alto with another accomplishment under my belt.
