Thanks to Andy Gelston for his wonderful comments regarding the heart and soul of flying (Flying at 14, Letters to the Editor, July 22 issue).
He nailed my feelings exactly about the current state of aviating. And his final words were pure music: “. . . there are no better experiences than having your feet on the rudder pedals of a glider and having an intimate conversation with the wind at treetop level.”
Wow! Now that’s flying.
