I have said it a million times and I will say it again – Recreational Flying is one of my favorite hobbies. You might think that it is a costly hobby. Yes, it is, and not to sound arrogant or anything, but I really do not mind the price of this hobby; not because I can afford it, but because it just help me a lot in dealing with life and brings a lot of good vibes into my personality and my overall outlook.
Whenever I fly, my focus and concentration skills are improved. It enhances my mental acuity and at the same time enhances my multitasking ability. Flying, for me, is a stress reliever. Every time I am facing tough times, I just spend a few minutes flying and it seems as though my worries and troubles are all gone. My mind becomes more relaxed and rejuvenated.
You might find it ironic, but flying does actually help me maintain a healthy and fit body. I treat myself as a commercial pilot. So, I always take good care of my body, especially my grooming. I always make sure that I job every day. I am not a gym person. I prefer to jog around the neighborhood and sometimes exercise in the comfort of my own home. Because I am fit and healthy, I do not only look good, but I feel good too. I have a stable state of mind. I get to look at things in a positive perspective.
Recreational flying also gives me an adrenaline rush. Whenever I fly a plane, it excites me in an unexplained way. As I pull the aircraft up in the sky, I feel the rush. As I safely land, I feel a sense of accomplishment, that feeling that I was able to take on another challenge and survive it.
Lastly, flying is my passion. Ever since I was a kid I always dream of flying a plane. I know that I can’t be a commercial pilot because I cannot stand to be away from my family. I know for a fact that the life of commercial pilots is not easy. They have to endure the time away from their family just to send passengers to their desired destination. So, instead of becoming a commercial pilot, I decided to indulge in recreational flying. It enables me to follow my passion and at the same time gives me the freedom to spend my time to people that matter to me. Cost wise, recreational flying is an expensive hobby. I spent thousands for my hobby but considering the satisfaction it gives me, I don’t mind the price. I am extremely happy doing the things I love the most.
