The memory: I was taking a course at McCall Mountain Canyon Flying School based in McCall, ID. Given that all my previous flight time was in a Cirrus, there were so many firsts for me in the training: tailwheel, grass and dirt strips, canyon flying… The instructors and staff at McCall guided us through with patient instruction and incredible aviation stories. I’m a better pilot for the experience!
