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.
