Learning how to fly

My latest interview as a radio correspondent is from Puget Ocean in Washington and features a story about landing a plane during a simulated power failure. My instructor was a stunt pilot and gave me one golden rule: “Anything you do, I can fix. But please, don’t turn the plane upside down. It’s not designed for that.” I got to take off, fly anywhere and land… or try to!
