Hello all, and Happy New Year!
2020 is upon us, and it’s a great time to reflect on what we did in 2019.
The purpose of this thread is to share some of your 2019 aviation accomplishments, stories, flights, photos, and experiences! Similar to this topic by @GlobalFlyer1, I figure everyone wants the ability to share some of their adventures.
So I’ll start, and then let’s see some of your favorite moments!
I had the opportunity to take 22 flights this year! I feel so fortunate to be able to do this, and can’t wait to continue sharing all these journeys with you guys.
Without further ado, here are my flights.
|VCE-CDG||Airbus A319||Air France|
|CDG-JFK||Airbus A380||Air France|
|SXM-SBH||DHC6 Twin Otter||Winair|
|SBH-SXM||DHC6 Twin Otter||Winar|
In addition to flying commercially, I continued with my flight training this year. I flew over 20 times and gained upwards of 30 hours of flight time.
Some notable achievements include:
- Passing 50 hours of flight time
- Flying the NYC skyline route in the NYC Class Bravo Airspace
- Taking my grandfather (who was in flight training) on a flight
This year, I had the opportunity to take many amazing photos! Here are the few I find most worthy of sharing
Aircraft: Cessna 172 (N6228N)
This may be one of the most stunning sunsets I’ve ever captured!
Aircraft: Boeing 717-200
A very early morning departure started out with low visibility and low cloud layers, but passing through the layer during our climb led to a stunning sunrise!
Aircraft: Boeing 757-200
Yet another sunrise. The reflection of the sun off the water was absolutely incredible
Aircraft: Airbus A340
Airline: Air France (Joon)
It’s your turn!
I’ve had the opportunity to share what my 2019 was like, now it’s on to you guys! What did you do? Did you travel somewhere unique? Explore a fun airport, or fly a new aircraft? Did you get good photos or do you have a funny story to tell? Let’s hear it!
Thanks so much, and have a great day/evening.
