Flying Quote

I found this great flying quote and just wanted to pass it on:

“When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”

I love to fly although I have only limited opportunities to do so. We live near an air force base and I love to hear the sound of the jets when they take off. It sounds as if they are truly rippling through the sky and although I have never ridden in one I imagine that it would truly be the ride of a lifetime

I like the quote a lot, but I am so very confused. If Leonardo De Vinci lived in the 1400's what was he flying in or how was he flying? Please help me figure this out.

I continued flight training seeing all my instructors leave for the airlines and then less than a year later come back to CFIs. By the end of the spring of 2009 I had changed my major to aviation management degree and decided to pursue aviation using part 61 I saw that I needed to pinch every penny that I could I still had ambitions to become an airline p
