    Wow. Great video. Makes me wish I would have had a good instructor when I took my lessons. I ended up quitting because of him. I wish I had the same experience you did. Amazing video.

    I too share the dream of flying, and have longed to soar above the clouds since I was a child. I am 64 and I would love to get my PPL. I have taken a couple of ‘Discovery’ flights and the feeling is indescribable. If the Lord should bless me with the means I hope to get my PPL someday. God bless.

    What an awesome video and wonderful message, not only to those with a passion and love of flying, but to apply to all aspects of life! Thanks for sharing, I look forward to my intro flight here in Raleigh, NC in the next few months! It is nice to hear someone express so eloquently the feeling that you just can’t describe to others about flying.

    Great video and great message. I realized my life-long dream of flying several years ago in a Flight Design CTsw light sport aircraft. My wife and I are having the times of our lives in N293CT. If you’d like an escort as you fly through NC, I’ll be there.

    I had the chance to meet Michael a few weeks ago, and was greatly impressed with his extremely friendly personality and passion for flying. His message to follow your dreams is very inspiring and I’m sure will help others to chase their dreams also. I wish him lots of luck in his upcomming journey across America.

    Very cool, narative! Although I’m still unsure about the foldable wings (to allow for storage in small area) of the Remos Gx. I want wings rigid as steel! 🙂

    Remos is an incredible aircraft.

    Wonderful video! Very touching. I agree with Leonardo da Vinci; “For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.”
