~ Family Day at the Flight Line! ~
On the 16th of March, Ryan’s flight school class had their long-awaited family day. Ryan’s Mom came up from Florida for the weekend and we all got to take a ride out to go watch Daddy fly “wop wops” (helicopters)! It was his 7th week of flight school (5th actually flying) and we’ve been so anxious to see him in action in person… Talk about surreal!!
Once we followed the caravan out to airfield, we kept looking all around for his tail number that he gave us since he was one of the last helicopters to make it over to the stage field, and Grams and I both started crying once we finally spotted him coming in for his landing! We got to see them hover, complete a few different landings, as well as completing their traffic patterns. We are so proud of our pilot-in-training and all that is to come on this adventure! All of the long nights, studies, check rides and tests will be worth it when he gets to have the coolest job in the military when he graduates!
