7. Describe your Dream Flight Day Experience
First we were greeted in the parking lot by all the volunteers. Then Caitlyn and I went upstairs to meet our Dream Flight Pilot where he explained to us what we would be doing inside the plane. After our pre-flight preparation was done we went down to inspect the plane and there were so many people wanting to take my picture. Once we got inside the plane we started communicating with the air traffic control tower and then finally we took off and flew around for about an hour. When we landed I got a hand-decorated poster, a pair of aviator sunglasses and personalized pilot’s jacket with my name on it.

Above the Clouds is giving children the opportunity to fly in a plane and even help to fly a plane. I am very grateful for my experience.
