5 Reasons I’m not put off flying

1.      There is currently over 10,000 planes in the sky – If that alone isn’t enough of a testament then visit flightradar24.com and you will see that the exact position of each plane and its heading, ETA and route and this demonstrates just how unlikely a crash is.

2.      Flying is just amazing – It never ceases to amaze that the science of flight was initiated. You fire up the engines along a giant runway with a metal tube until it lifts off and stays up for hours, how is that even possible ?

NOTE TO SELF by Tumi Katisi

Tumi 2Bars, the name i came up with for myself ofcourse mostly influenced by those bars on my shoulder which were a mission to obtain and most importantly what made me realize how hard yet interesting and special life is.

See, flying is not something i grew up knowing i was going to do, but I highly favour the day i made the decision that im going go be a pilot. There is no better career path i could of chosen now that i think of it, there is nothing like being in control of your plane and just seeing the world from a birds eye view, ive had several of my mates and family members that i flew tell me how out of this world the view is from those flight levels ,so i learnt to appreciate the beauty of each flight i do as its not everyone who gets to see what us Pilots see.
