General remarks about your flight:
Very eventful filled with every emotion you can imagine. No way to foresee everything that could have happened but was comfortable with the outcome.


Advice to other pilots:
Follow your dreams and do the research to everywhere you are going. Never hesitate to make the decision not to go on a specific flight because you can always fly another day. Remember that you would rather be down here wishing you were up there rather then being up there wishing you were down here.
