Nice vid! Could have done without the overdriven soundtrack tho. heh

Pilot Stories:

I actually did want to be a pilot about 12 or so years ago. I started to read up on the steps necessary to get a private license. I even found at the time (still a young internet) a guy's almost daily "blog" of his experience going from a guy who thought it would be nice to a guy with a pilots license. The problem was the cost. With a new family I just didn't have the scratch to pursue it. Although his blog was supposed to be inspirational it really hilighted all the time/money involved. I had neither.

I had a friend, Jason Dotter, when going to school at OU who joined the air force as a pilot so that he could eventually be an astronaut. Last I heard he was flying a Raptor, but this was like 15 years ago, heh. I'm sure he's already in the astronaut program, he was one of the smartest people I've ever known and fully driven towards his goal. I still have high admiration for him, even though I haven't spoken to him in about 10 years. I'm still expecting to see his name on a NASA mission soon. Heres a pic of him:

For with what measure you measure it will be measured to you.
