The Mission: To spend a few days in New York City with my youngest kids
The Memory: After dropping my oldest son off at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, I decided to take my three youngest to New York City because they had always wanted to see it. I figured I might as well take advantage of the opportunity to fly the Hudson River VFR corridor. So glad that I did. The kids were in absolute awe at all there was to see. It was amazing to fly up the river and have a building towering high above you. I’ve been privileged to have so many awe inspiring experiences flying my own plane, many of them alone as I commute cross country. I was so glad I got to share this experience with the kids.
