Goodbye 2019


End of a decade

2019 marks the end of the first decade in the 21st century.

I only flew once this year. And what a flight that was…

There was tremendous progress on other fronts, and I think next year should bring forth many more flying adventures.

The top five visited posts this past year were:

  1. GA Flying over Niagara Falls
  2. Flying to the Bahamas in a C172
  3. Point-to-point Navigation
  4. Oshkosh Flyin: Rock your Wings
  5. Indian Women Pilots

Interesting to see that the viewership of  my Niagara Falls article was double the Bahamas article which until last year was the most visited!

Here’s wishing an exciting and adventurous Roaring 20’s!
