Update from Tom Sullivan
I’ve done one Northwoods Airlifeline (NWALL) flight (this spring) since our Xmas excitement. Flying has been a bit less enjoyable or interesting. I let some time pass and worked on getting ”back on the horse”. Flying to Asheville for a Lancair Convention in early October was “pushing myself”, to be honest, but it went well.
Last week I flew with Bruce Rutter to get completely IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) current. I felt quite a bit better after that.
Today I flew my first NWALL Flight in my old (new) airplane, N1017L, a Mooney Rocket. I took Zach (Lisa Tedeschi Berlinski) down to Milwaukee and back. The poor guy got non-stop “play-by-play” updates of every aspect of the flight, but I think he enjoyed it (and it certainly made the trip seem shorter).
Today clearly was the turning point for me realizing how much flying, and helping others with my airplane, means to me!!!
