I’m sure I’ve talked about this before, but TJ and I love all things aviation. So much so that we even took some of our engagement pictures at the Raleigh/Durham airport’s observation park.
In the past few years, TJ has flown a helicopter, I’ve flown a small plane, we’ve taken a hot air balloon ride together, and we’ve ridden in a helicopter together. On Saturday, it was TJ’s turn to fly a small plane, so we headed out to RDU to fly around in a Diamond Aircraft for about an hour. The lesson was through Blue Line Aviation, and we had a great instructor with us. The whole experience was amazing, and we’d love to do it again! We’ve both talked about getting our pilot’s license at some point, but for now, we’ll just keep taking lessons when we find a deal for them. Maybe in the future we’ll be able to pursue it more seriously. As a side note, we’ve done almost all of these activities through Groupon, so be sure to keep your eyes open for similar deals, if you’re interested in aviation too!
Here are some of my favorite shots from the day:
And for my fellow Arrested Development fans, I couldn’t help but take a picture of this
Have you ever flown a plane? What are some things you’re obsessed with, like our love for aviation?
