Why I Fly

December 2009

Brian "Brain" Kissenger bought Fly Baby N6503 in 2009, and quickly succumbed to the Fly Baby allure.  

by Brian "Brain" Kissinger

Why do I fly every possible day?
I fly to escape ordinary things;
Climbing up high my worries fall away
Because of my machine with magic wings.
Then it’s time to return for the landing
In my little airplane so small and svelte;
Checklist called out with good understanding
CHECK gas is on and SECURE my seat belt.
Forward slip near the ground, sideways it looks;
Nothing else on earth now matters you see
Beautiful ending, just like in kids’ books.
Why do I fly? It rejuvenates me.
Flying takes me from the ordinary
And I return to the land most happy.
