The first time I flew a cross country flight, I didn’t think much of it.
A year and a half later, the pilot asked me if I wanted to go back to flying for the next day.
I said yes.
And the next.
But I was still very nervous.
I was nervous that this would be my first cross-continental flight, my first time flying from one continent to another.
It was a huge change, and I was unsure how it would work.
Cross-country flights have always been an interesting topic of conversation in aviation, but rarely as much as this.
The concept of the plane is not new, but the amount of technology and expertise involved has grown exponentially in recent years.
In the early days, it was the equivalent of having a jet ski in your bag, with the ability to travel at speeds up to 60mph.
The plane has gone from an expensive luxury item to a more affordable one, and the idea of a cross flight has become part of the fabric of aviation.
