What are your real-world aviation wishes?

I didn’t see any that related to real life so I think I’m good.

What are 3 things you wish, hope or dream would happen to you aviation-wise?

Here are mine:

  1. Get my pilots license.
  2. Fly the C-130 in the Air Force.
  3. Someone asks me to teach them about aviation.

  1. The 737MAX returns to service before the end of the year, and continues to be a safe, reliable aircraft series.

  2. The Boeing 747, and other aircraft being retired, are converted to live a long and successful life in the freighter industry.

  3. All airport terminals are improved for better, more comfortable service.

  4. Ultra-long haul flying becomes more normal and becomes easier for travelers.

  5. Obtain a pilot’s license and fly widebody aircraft.

Not many wishes, but it’s a start. However, I’m not really sure how long this topic will last.

  • Re-engined 757 to compete against the 321 (although I like the 321)

  • A380F comes soon

  • I can fly on a 747 before they all go away (specifically the LH 748 EWR-FRA)

  • That aviation can return to pre-covid conditions (e.g. more flights, more variety of planes flying, and more.)

  • Get a PPL and go to Embry Riddle

  • See SQ21/22 happen again :(
