So waaaaay back in 2005 my family started attending a new church. At that church I met a young man named Jordan who was interested in aviation. His dream was to be a pilot one day. Like any good pilot I wanted to encourage that dream and so I took him for a ride in my RV-4. This logbook entry records the occasion.
Fast forward to this past Wednesday. I met Jordan out at Oakdale Airport (O27) after work. Jordan had rented a plane and was ready to give me my airplane ride. It truly was one of those circle of life moments for me. Here’s a guy I’d been encouraging for years in his desire to learn to fly, and he actually went and did it. It was a long journey for him with stops and starts but he saw it through and I have to say I’m quite proud of him!
I’m going to join the same flying club out in Oakdale that he’s a member of and if all goes well with insurance and my biennial flight review, we’ll be flying together a lot more. It will be a great way for us both to save some money and enjoy flying fellowship with another Christian pilot.
Can a man fly AND love Jesus? You’d better believe it!
Jordan definitely agrees!
