Marc took me on an airplane ride before we went over to Scott's hanger at the Waukesha airport. I have always been enamored by the thought of flying a small plane. I do have to admit, that I have always figured it was a similar sensation or experience to commercial flight, but after today, I would say that the two forms of flying have nothing to do with each other. Marc was really excellent about explaining every gauge, button, or switch in the Cessna before we ever took off. He explained everything about the process after we were in the air and even had me "take over" the controls so I could get a feel for how connected you are when you fly a plane this size. Marc demonstrated all controls in regard to actions in the plane. I handled the intentional stall and banked turns where I was able to feel the g-force even in this small plane (which I did not expect). We flew along the ice and it was breathtaking (even saw a bald eagle) and then climbed to cruising altitude and headed to Dodge Country Airport in Juneau. We landed and went inside to get some coffee and cookies while the tanks were being topped off with fuel. We hopped back in the Cessna and climbed to cloud level and then above. We then headed back to Hartford and put the plane back in the hanger. What a trip! I suffer from motion sickness when riding in the back of a car as well as on amusement park rides and so I was worried that I wouldn't be able to stomach the plane ride. I didn't get sick, but I did get a bit disoriented when Marc banked hard inside a cloud. Though my "internal gyro" has been off a bit ever sense the flight. Crazy cool all the same though... Thanks to Marc for taking me on my first small plane flight.
