GA Services America

I've felt for a while that I've need to write about this.
I wanted to bring up what General Aviation or GA is. Basically it's any part of Aviation that is not Commercial Airlines or Military. So Commercial operations like charter flights, business aviation, the big UPS and Fedx jets that fly out of Sky Harbor as well as the little ups planes that flies in to places like Safford and Payson are all GA. Crop-dusters, ariel firefighters, pilots that fly supplies to people that can't get it any other way, search and rescue workers, the forest service, flight instructors, as well as anyone with there own airplane is GA. 
The problem is that most people think that General Aviation is only, stereotypically, rich people with their own airplane. The problem with this is that the Government now seems to want to tax more of the rich, but GA is not rich. Sure there is rich people that fly for pleaser but going after GA as a whole is wrong way to get money out of those people.
The reason I'm writing this is just to educate about GA and hopeful in the future if you hear anything about GA you won't think its a bunch of millionaires on joy rides after their games of golf. But that is a real asset that serves communities all over America. 
Below are a few videos from the Aircraft Owners and Pilot Association or AOPA and their push to help educate about how General Aviation Services America. For more information you can go to their website: GAservesAmerica.com

My IFR story

An ifr story I finally did it this December I passed my instrument rating so I’m now a commercial land and sea instrument rated pilot single engine. It definitely took a long time to do I started instrument flying about 10 years ago. It wasn’t that I never wanted to get my instrument rating it’s that I ran out of money. I got my private pilots certificate in the fall of 2008 in the spring of the year I got married. I was going to Arizona State with ambitions to become a commercial pilot. By the time I got my private license the financial recession that happened that year in the next few years after was starting to manifest itself. 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
