It’s funny how life falls together at times. While getting a hair cut I found out through casual conversation that my barber’s son had expressed an interest in being an airline pilot. I offered to introduce him to aviation with a Young Eagles flight. I thought I’d never hear any else about it. Wrong! I posted on social media Friday evening that I would be flying to KUNI for donuts on Saturday and almost immediately I received a text from this young man’s dad saying he was interested in that ride I offered. I was thrilled!! So we set it up so Carson could fly with me for the donut trip to KUNI. Just by coincidence KUNI is home to Ohio State University’s Aviation school. Once we arrived I introduced him and the line guy showed him around the airport slash campus and took him in almost every hanger. I think that smile says it all. Hopefully Carson will remember me when he hits the big time!
