<<fsyoutube_jump giabKrcdNj8 150>>So both of my parents were pilots, and so was my grandfather, my mom's dad.\n\nI started taking lessons last year, and managed to finally get a license.

<<fsyoutube_jump EPWyTBUYolo 70>>I have to remember that looking back is a groove you can get into. For better or worse.
