I keep falling in love with flying deeper and deeper. Just when I think, "this is as good as it gets," a new adventure comes along. I just got my commercial pilots license and am currently working on my bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Science with a concentration as a flight officer. With the help of Metro University's Aerobatics and Glider club I strive to become a better and safer pilot. Follow your heart no matter the heights, wear a parachute in case all else fails.
