You’ve probably noticed that once you’re involved in an activity you soon discover there are thousands of others enjoying it, too. Whether you’re collecting coins, climbing mountains, learning a new language, or discovering the latest form of self-abuse, you soon find other crazy folks who’ve been doing it for years.
Flying is no different. Yes, the sport-pilot certificate is a new thing, but many thousands of pilots are already primarily sport or recreational fliers—and most would love to meet you and share their knowledge. You’ll find most of them quite helpful. Meeting them will broaden your flying as well as your friendships. Let’s meet a few of them.
"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore."
