I'm in a mentoring program called "Kids on the Rise" that helps underprivileged kids, especially those with little or poor family social structure. Yesterday, I took my mentee, Hunter, for his first airplane ride - ever! He is not lacking in confidence, however, after about 3 minutes of holding the stick, he said, "I think I'm getting the hang of this!"

I think you can see that I enjoyed this experience as much as Hunter!

The sheer joy on Johns face along with his passenger is priceless!  This is life at its best John.

Definitely one of the best uses of our planes. Way to go, John.
