I was half way to my pilots license and realized it would become an anchor requiring routine airtime - I'm thankful that with a quick glance at the POH (pilots operating handbook) for the critical air speeds of the aircraft, I can fly it in an emergency, but opted not to have and maintain a license. Haven't been up in a balloon or a fighter jet yet...)Writing, Scripture.
