Video traffic exploded over the past few days – People have really been loving this one, with over 38,000 views so far! I hope it inspires a few people to get started on their path to a pilot’s license.

This is why I love to fly:

Thanks for watching!

    Hey Swayne, please change the music titles in your video(s), it’s not possible to see your youtube videos in Germany, because the music is prohibited by GEMA.
    Regards from Berlin

      Tom, I’m so sorry about that! For some reason, Germany is the only country that doesn’t allow this song to be played. It’s “I’m Alive” by Michael Franti & Spearhead.

    Swayne, I am in high school and am very interested in getting my pilot’s license. Is there any grants that I could apply for? In my area of the U.S. the schooling process totals out to be approximately $12,000.

      That’s awesome to hear you’re considering getting your license, Gipson. Flight training is very expensive and I know how you feel … I had to spread out my training over a year just to afford it. There are scholarships available through AOPA, the EAA, Women in Aviation, etc. There also might be some local scholarships available that you should look into. But when in doubt, you can always get a job and save money that way. Best of luck! You’ll love it.

    Hi –

    Looks like on approach at 2:31 you had a near miss bird strike…?

    I just love the way your videos show the sheer joy of flying. The smiles on your face, on your passengers’ faces, the momentum, the sceneries, the cuts, the music… I guess showing one of your videos would be the perfect way to explain why we fly.

    Thank you!
