Why be an airline pilot when one can do this instead.

Размещено
 
I love aviation. There is nothing like flying for a living and being a commercial pilot. However, not all flying is equal. There is the kind where one merely sits there, watches the instruments, and let's the plane fly itself. This is the job of the airline pilot. Then there is the kind where one really flies and is in full control of the plane and becomes one with it. That's the kind of flying I love. To understand what I'm talking about just watch with the video. (vimeo.com) Ещё...
