Passing the Torch


Ilya and his 9 and 7 year olds

If you are here to learn about flying your DA40 Diamondstar (or similarly-sized and equipped airplane) across the country, you might be a little disappointed since we switched planes. But my friend Ilya has done it, and documented his experience, and I have a feeling that if you keep an eye on his blog you will be learning more about those adventures.

(I was surprised at the parallels of our experiences and the fact that he was starting his DA40 flying adventures when his boys were 9 and 7, just like Rudy and Dexter were when we started flying in N971RD. There’s even a photo and video somewhere of Dexter playing with that same FBO cat in Flagstaff.)
