What is the best thing about aviation?

What is the greatest thing about flying? What gives you the greatest thrill?

For me its flying low and fast!

What would be your favourite thing in all of flying? Also if you were capable of flying anything what would it be?

I enjoy learning all the controls and checklists so I don't get any critical failures during the flight. Bringing it down for a smooth landing takes a lot of concentration and is very rewarding.

Iv'e gone for a trail flight. It was the first time i went up in an aircraft. I BLOODY enjoyed it! The pilot gave me complete control. I loved the landing but in a way i didnt. I did because i wanted to try to land the aircraft for the first time and i didnt because i wanted to stay up there for a little while longer.

Learing to fly is very rewarding friend. It also gives you that moment of pride!

My parents didnt like the idea of me flying......Well actuly its was my mar.
She was afrid of me having an accident. I dont blame here for being worried about my safety. If she didnt worrie then what sort of a parent would she be? Anyway i asured that flying is as safe as it can be. Flying is in fact safer than driving. You hear more people dieing in cars than planes. Probably because pilots are well trained to handle any situation.

Anyway flying is defently the best thing to me.

The people on the ground really do look like ants. 😂

you've just reminded me of somthing! When i went for my trail flight i came across golfers! I told the pilot that there were golfer down there and he said " they are are they?". Then the pilot dived the plane to a low alttitude and he incressed the aircrafts speed! We flew low and fast over the golfers.

We were at an alttitude of 4000 and when he dived we went straite to an alttitude of 1800! Our speed was 125knots.

Im pritty sure we scared those golfers! I think the pilot was either showing off or he hated golfers. Either way i loved it!

People do look like little tiny bugs from the air.

The freedom to go where and when you want to go. The simplicity of a tail dragger without computer displays, autopilot or ATC. Back to the basics of aviation. A pilot using his eyes, skills and experience to fly. A pilot being totally responsible for the planning and execution of a flight. Flying from one uncontrolled field to another on your chosen course and altitude, free to detour to see a lake or town of your choosing. 🙂

Everything in general about flying i would have to say. One thing i can pick out, however, is the scenery. In Scotland there are some fantastic views from the air in C-152 at just 3500ft, snow capped mountains, hanging valleys, lush greenery and the odd large settlement here and there.

Exelent! when in fs simulator i hardly ever use the auto pilot. I find it more enjoyable when you are flying the aircraft intierly by skill and knolwedge. I think todays great auto technology is making our flying skills obsalete. Being told by a computer on how to fly is insulting to me.

An aircraft is a pile of nuts and bults but when mixed with a well experianced and knowlegdeable pilot it becomes somthing special. Its boring just sitting in the pilots seat while letting the computer fly it for you.

We should keep flying it like our old grandads did! NO! computers NO! automations. Just old fashion skill and knowledge of a great pilot! WE ARE AVIATORS! We were ment to fly! We do not need any help from computers. An aviator is ten times better than some computer! Because a computer lacks one thing! SKILL!

A computer can copy an aviator but a computer can never be an aviator!

What I love about flying is...
The freedom of movement. You're free! You can do whatever you want, and see stuff from and angle you've never seen them before!You can travel faster than anything else, and move from a to b in a flash.
Then, It's also technology. You need to study checklists, tweak motors, look at your plane's mecaics, and look at aerodynamics. It's a wonderfully complicated thing, with beautiful rewards! 😀

What I love about flying the Concorde is the cozy, simplistic cockpit. When I raise the visor I feel protected in my own little but very fast world.

Always had the bug.
I saw a great huge eagle early one morning, wings spread fully. swooping across the entire lenght of a lake, a few short feet above the water.
That's how I feel about flying. 😀

as said in the documentary "One Six Right: The Romance of Flying" in the very begining Barry Schiff says ''Asking someone why they like flying is like asking someone why they like Picasso.'' and i totally agree. there is no one answer to this question. 😉

I like to fly at high altitudes so humans look like ants. Once I descended and in fact it was ants the size of humans. Imagine my surprise! It reminded me of the old classic 'It Came From The Desert' 😳
