Last week Antonio, a coworker turned good friend, asked if I would be interested in flying somewhere this morning. Of course the answer was yes! We rented a Diamond DA-20 from TraxAir, a training facility located at Orlando Executive Airport. I had ridden in an ultralight sport aircraft before, but never a general aviation aircraft. The difference in how smooth the ride was surprised me, the DA20 was incredible! We landed in Winter Haven (GIF) and then ate at Pappy’s Grill, which served a very reasonably priced and delicious breakfast. After we were done with breakfast, we headed over to Lake Jessup and practiced a few stalls, then headed back to Orlando Executive and returned the plane.
