I started to plan this trip, as I needed to build the hours I required to start my commercial/MEIR. The basic requirement I had, was for the trip to be quick and cheap. I was able to avail of free flights to the US with my employer Cargolux, and with the hourly rate less than half the price I pay in Europe, the US seemed the obvious place to go. The only thing left was to decide where in the US.
I ended up choosing Phoenix, one, because I expect that the weather would be ideal (not entirely the case), and two, because I wanted to use the hours to make it a trip to remember, and I knew that Phoenix would be an ideal location to base myself for some beautiful flying.
Knowing that it was going to be a trip of a lifetime, I wanted to keep some sort of record of the trip. It was this desire, that led to the creation of this blog.
Anyway, enough of the rambling. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy the read.
