excerpt: Pilot interview 1, Farnborough, 11th February 2013

How would you describe the feeling of flying?

It’s pure freedom. You cannot imagine how nice it is to be… I mean, I fly multi-crew now, which is a bit boring, but single crew, by yourself… like I said at 28,000 feet, is the most awesome feeling. You feel completely detached from the world. 28,000 feet is, lets see… it’s 4 and a half miles up in the air, and all the credit card debt and the mortgage and the angry girlfriend and everything like that, it just disappears. And you see the most beautiful things. I’m not a religious man, but there are things out there… seeing the sunset from that high up is just stunning, and you can’t get over that. Stuff that can really affect you.
