Happy 4th of July!
We have such great freedoms in this country and we take them for granted. You can get into your private plane and fly coast to coast without ever needing permission from anyone. If you avoid the controlled airspace, you can make your way all over this country without asking permission or paying a fee. It's not like that everywhere. In other countries, you must file flight plans for just about every trip. That is very restrictive and very time consuming. I am so greatful to live in a country that allows me the freedom to fly when I like without the burden of too much government interference and over reach. Happy Fourth of July, be safe and enjoy!!!
