For the first few years, it was for the sheer pleasure and FUN. Now, like anything else in life its become a job. That said, I still get a rush when I push the throttles forward. That feeling will never leave.
I fly now to pay the bills and it beats working for a living.
Fly safe all, Cheers

To bore holes into the sky.

To relax.

To forget about what is pi**ing me off.

To see far.

To visit friends.

To go fishing.

Sounds to me like 'Unable Due Traffic' has it right!

For those of you who can't find that feeling anyomore... for who'm it's become "just a job"... Y'really oughtta give some thought to what makes your job so much more than "just a job"! ... I'd recommend trying "just a job" for a while to remind yourself, but that would be really stupid.

Say hello to the sky for me will ya? Ya lucky buggers! 8)

I agree with what Undue traffic said..plus I can't think of a better way to spend my time then defying gravity. Oh and being a young man I must mention that the girls really dig it when they find out Im a pilot :)

Because I looked up once when I was young and have never been able to pull my attention away.
I fly because I have to.....without it, there is something missing in my life. I've given up far too much for aviation to ever turn my back to it now.

Sometimes I think it's a shame when I get feelin' better when I'm feelin no pain.
