Today was the most fulfilling day of my career!!! I was given the opportunity to fly the Delta Dream Flight for over 100 OBAP Aviation Career Education students from across the country!
For the first time, I shared the flight deck BOTH of the two Delta Captains who were my camp instructors in 2001. Yes, the pressure was definitely on, not to mention the 20 other very accomplished and history making pilots from Delta and other Air carriers who were all sitting in the back! 😓 Felt like a checkride!!
We started the day in ATL, flew a 757 to Washington DC to spend a full day at the Air and Space Museum, and then back down to ATL!
Being that myself along with the First Officer Holmes (the Pilot who flew the second flight) both started our journeys in aviation as ACE Academy students, we both agree that this was probably the most rewarding day of our careers thus far!
Enjoyed showing the youth first hand what I've been blessed with for a career!
All in all, I am extremely grateful to have been apart of such a rewarding opportunity! Great job to all those involved in facilitating the event! #keepclimbing #deltadreamflight #obap @aviatorsofcolor #pilotlife #aviators #futureaviators #dreamjob #weflyhigh #delta #pursueyourgoals #followyourdreams #defytheodds
