Les recently got his helicopter’s license and acquired this video from his solo flight.  He comes from a line of pilots, through his father and grandfather, and I know adding a helicopter license (he got his private pilot license for flying airplanes when he was 16) was personally dear to him.  I’m genuinely filled with joy he was given the opportunity to do this.  A blessing.

Note on the photo:  This photo was taken several years ago at an airshow.  I’m holding Malaki who fell asleep in my arms but would wake up any time I put him down in the stroller.   He would cry until I snuggled him – so in my arms is where he contently stayed.
