MAUI NO KA OI MAGAZINE
Flying Without Wings
From the May/June 2019 issue of Maui No Ka Oi Magazine;
“As we turn north to make the return flight to Kahului, Nick lets me take back control of the cyclic, and we glide along at 1,500 feet with frothing seas and big surf on our right, freshly washed forest slopes to our left. Since I get to choose, we’re flying right above the seam of the cliff and sea boundary for maximum visual drama.
“I’m still nervous, and careful, but I’m also so stoked that I’m nearly floating in my seat.
“As Pā‘ia and Baldwin Beach roll by below and the airport control tower materializes ahead, I realize that my flight is coming to a close just as I’m getting the hang of it.”
