While we were home last week Dave had his first ever flying lesson. I gave him the lesson for Christmas and he couldn't wait to use it. When we arrived we were offered a 45 minute tour of the flying club followed by a 45 minute flying lesson. Dave was asked to partake in checking the outside of the plane as well as the flight check before take off with his flying teacher. I relaxed in the back of the plane, a little cramped but well worth it for the views we were able to take in. When we first took off the wind took us a little up and down with some turbulence but when we got to the final flying altitude Dave took over and flew us over Prospect Lake to the Downtown Inner Harbour. The clouds blew over for a clear ride and we were able to pick out all the major sights and bays, even flying over my parents house in Oak Bay. We rounded back over the islands off the coast of Sidney to come back into the airport. Dave loved the experience and I would definitely suggest it for someone who wants to learn to fly or as a gift for a loved one!
