flying aircraft is a very very technical activity.but itâ€™s so much more than that. there is a complete majesty to flying which i love sharing. iâ€™m a captain on the a330 with qantas. i never remember a time when i wantedto do anything else to be honest. i must have been incredibly small and i remember seeinga silver dot streaking across the sky. this flying machine was full of people going on adventures.yeah i was absolutely fascinated by the whole concept. thereâ€™s a lot of science and engineering that goes in to these aircraft,but i firmly believe thereâ€™s a lot of magic too. the kids have always had aeroplanesin the backyard more or less. harry wanted to be a pilot for a long time,heâ€™s been pretty much around aeroplanes all his life.
to have something in common thatyou can share with your kids is terrific. my dad learnt to fly when i was about 9 years old. i pretty much went out there every single timehe went flying and watched him. now that i watch harry take off andsuddenly have this sense of dã©jã vu. the circle has come completely around again. iâ€™m sure heâ€™s fairly chuffed about it. we fly people not planes and, you know,thatâ€™s what qantas is all about. flying an airline, itâ€™s a privilege. itâ€™s a human journey every timeand thatâ€™s why itâ€™s so special.
