Flying in a little plane.  Or, what happens when you get caught speeding in the sky.

Image credit Pinterest.  (Not our actual plane.)
Our firm has a contract with a private airline, that flies regionally.  

One of the partners decided not to go to a meeting we were having in Dallas, so I got to take his seat on the “plane”.

I’ve always flown a lot, but only commercially, so this was a new experience for me.  The company flies a small 8 seater.  I don’t know what kind, but I had a great view of the pilot, co-pilot and cockpit.

Halfway from Dallas to Houston, a very loud alarm started beeping, and the pilots started working the control panel, and smiled at each other as the alarm subsided. 

The 7 of us in the cabin were wide eyed, and sitting up straight.  The co-pilot turned and said, “we got caught speeding”.

I had no idea they had speed limits in the sky.  You learn something new, everyday.  I decided at that point I would indulge in one of the adult beverages they provided.  I was very grateful for minor alarms.

What was really cool, was no TSA lines, no body scans, no pat downs, no arriving 2 hours early, and it was at a little airport 15 minutes from the house.  I could get used to this kind of flying.

Where ever you find yourself on this fine Friday, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

TGIF everyone.

    • That is entirely possible! I know nothing of aviation and cockpits. 😊
      They could have kept us blissfully ignorant of the real problem, which is fine by me.
