Fly-in will give Kansas resident chance to fly historic bomber once again
The Hutchinson News
When Tom Key read that an A-26 Invader was going to be part of Kansas' Hutchinson Airport Fly-In of historic aircraft, he went to the airport to learn more and found himself sitting with airport manager Pieter Miller. How much, Key asked, would it cost to get a ride on the Lady Liberty, the A-26 owned and operated by the Commemorative Air Force? "About $500 to $550," Miller replied. "Well," said Key, who came with a folder full of his military records and photos, "if a guy had flown 50 missions in an A-26, would that cut any ice?” Like a chainsaw, as it turns out.

Great-grandmother flies plane for 1st time
The Gaithersburg Gazette
While Mary Hamilton Moe of Chevy Chase, Maryland, was growing up in suburban Philadelphia, her father would teach her to drive at the local cemetery, where she couldn't hurt anyone. But teenage Moe wasn't interested in driving at all. She wanted to fly. Life, however, always got in the way, said the 91-year-old great-grandmother of two.

Setting priorities: Aviate, navigate, communicate — and evaluate risk
By James Williams
Reprinted with Permission from FAA Aviation News
Humans aren't very good at evaluating risk. It's a sad truth that contributes to the potential danger of aviation. One problem is that real danger, or risk, is different from perceived risk. We tend to either over or under "value" the risks we face.

Nova Scotia super-senior celebrates birthday with flight
The Chronicle Herald
It doesn't happen often, but just for a moment, Doris Stevens didn't have the words. Only minutes earlier, she made the pilot sitting beside her blush when she asked if he was trying to touch her. But awe and joy were etched on her face when asked to describe what it was like to fly 610 meters over the Annapolis Valley in a Cessna 172. The Liverpool, Nova Scotia, woman celebrated her 102nd birthday and her family arranged for the flight in the small plane for the adventure-loving great-grandmother.

Students' dreams take flight
Connecticut Post
The first time Jessie Abrams, 15, flew up in a single-engine Cessna 182, he was hooked. "You look down and it is like a whole different world," Abrams said, on the end of a Sikorsky Memorial Airport tarmac as Bridgeport Military Academy air cadets, like him, lined up for a turn in the four-seater. "You are 3,000-plus feet in the air. It's amazing, exciting and still scary." For 15 students in the academy's Civil Air Patrol club, school is a place to learn about aircraft systems and how to read flight navigation charts along with academics.
