“Everyone you fly is thankful. You really do get more than you give. When you do one of these flights, it can be very moving, and once it hooks, you’re hooked.”

Jerry and Julian’s First Discovery Flight!

“On a clear but blustery day Julian and I enjoyed our first Discovery flight together. The challenge of the day was to avoid the TFR on Foxboro so we used the Terminal Area Chart to plan a flight west to Hopeland, then south to North Central, east to Taunton, and finally landed in Plymouth where we had lunch at Plane Jane’s. Julian enjoyed using the chart for navigation, and seeing Providence, the cranberry bogs, Buzzards Bay and the Atlantic. Our flight home to Norwood was facilitated by an ATC clearance into the Bravo area.” Jerry Heller
