I longed to fly since I was in my early 20s but found one reason after another why I couldnt. Then at age 55 I realized it was now or never. I booked an introductory flight with my wife in a powered parachute and had decided to buy one before I left the field. I currently fly a two place Aviomania powered by a Honda engine. I trained dual place gyro with David Seace. I have been flying for 0ver 15 years.
