Never a better, safer place to practice student flight than over a residential area.. I really like the ~500ft altitude drop

Hi, found this on a hike in Dreamy Draw but couldn't find Seung-jin on fb. I can send this to the address on the card but thought I'd reach out here first in case he saw this.
Shut down your school please it's bad enough with all the stuff going now and you guys still want to be open wow just cuz your students wear mask it doesn't mean nothing that virus goes through it have the common courtesy to shut down if not face the consequences when everybody and the news knows that you guys refuse to stay open knowing that 90 percent of your students come from were it originated please it's not the end of your business if you shut down just at least until this blows over but really go ahead stay open eventhough you know really well am right its better to be safe than sorry also by the way I live at aspire and those mask the students are wearing is not going to stop the spread of the virus especially if they continue to smoke and prance around laughing also teach them how to close the door without slamming it everytime I don't get it it's not hard my kids know how to close a door properly why can't they wow......

Did you know: ⭐️Northern Arizona is frequently listed as one the top places in the world for stargazing. With clear skies and low light pollution, you not only get to experience breathtaking flights, but you can also enjoy endless stargazing almost any time of year. In 2001, Flagstaff became the World’s First “International Dark Sky City.” Flagstaff sees on average over 280 sunny days per year meaning dark cloudless nights for stargazing. ⭐️ 🌄🌌

Fun Fact Friday: ℹ️👨‍💻👩‍💻At around 30,000 ft, approximately 1/3 of taste buds go 'numb' while flying. The reason for this is the lack of humidity, lower air pressure and surprisingly enough...background noise. 🧐

📚🔍"Aside from being the world's most-produced aircraft at 43,000+ built and counting, the humble 172 has its place in aviation history as a record breaker...

On December 4th, 1958, Bob Timm and John Cook took off from McCarran Field in Las Vegas, Nevada in a modified Cessna 172 emblazoned with the name of the Hacienda Hotel where Timm, a World War II veteran bomber pilot, worked as a slot machine mechanic...the owner of the hotel had agreed to sponsor the flight and had the idea of making it a cancer research fundraiser as well to give the record attempt a more altruistic justification than being purely a PR stunt. For the next two months, the two pilots flew around Nevada and southern California, refuelling and taking on supplies from a speeding pickup truck along an abandoned stretch of highway and sleeping in turns on a mattress that had been installed in place of the starboard and rear seats. They landed safely back at McCarran on February 7th, 1959, after 64 days, 22 hours and 19 minutes aloft, a total of 1,558.3 hours of air time. After breaking the existing record, Timm and Cook had decided to continue their flight as long as possible, but eventually had to discontinue it because their engine was wearing out and it was becoming difficult to climb away after taking on fuel. There are plenty of write-ups of the record flight online, two of the most detailed are on the AOPA website and at Disciples of Flight. Hacienda was later sold to at least two subsequent owners in Canada and had a long flying career before eventually being preserved and restored to its record-breaking configuration and is now on display suspended above one of the baggage claim carousels at McCarran International Airport." ✈️ 😎

ICP008 is finally here on campus and ready to rock n roll!

Congratulations @natiekolen! After a few years of a flying pause, Katie decided to dive back into training and completed her private pilot on the perfect day: #nationalaviationday . Not only was this the perfect day to do so, she also surprised her dad (who got her started in flying in the first place and he had no idea she got back into the cockpit). Safe to say he was more than thrilled! 😭😍 . 08/20/2020
