On May 20, 2013, I joined the Wings of Carolina Flying Club (www.wingsofcarolina.org). That night I started ground school, which lasts for 15 sessions, 3 hours each! Luckily, I enjoy aviation, but no break in studying this summer! John Hunter is our instructor and he has been flying and teaching aviation for 50 years. He is also the chief mechanic for the flying club and uses volunteers to help maintain the aircraft each Wednesday night. Wings of Carolina has been around for many years and is one of the largest flying clubs in the United States. I am very blessed to have a club like this nearby to keep training costs lower and instructional value very high. Well, back to the books to study aerodynamics (or as Marissa called it, “automaniacs”).
