Sometimes it may feel like
but time passes so quickly.
In his chosen uniform of blue,
the Pilot Man will today
30 (yes, thirty!) years
at Bering Air!!
Once he was flying
in the Lower '48.
Then he packed up everything he had,
drove to Alaska
to fly to a job he had accepted
in Nome, Alaska.
a lifelong dream of his to be a Bush Pilot!!
His flights have been varied,
and he does occasionally still fly in the Lower '48.
Bering Air transport passengers,
mail (which includes all winter groceries),
Years of flying to Russia
means many Visas ;-)
among other things!
Some of the airplanes he flies now, are new since he began at BA.
But, others are the same ones he has worked
with since he first arrived!
By choice he doesn't fly scheduled flights as much as he used to.
Instead he focuses on keeping things moving during the day..
trying to get everything delivered safely,
and people happy ;-)
It has been interesting, sometimes challenging,
but, definitely never boring.
He still enjoys going to work where it is
always an adventure,
with no two days
eVeR the same!
he isn't looking to retire or change is life..
he is having too much fun
living his dream!
To infinity and beyond.....
