Biplane start

Unforgettable.

A fabulous gift for an aspie is a biplane flight.

Strapped snugly in the cockpit, with the pilot behind, you see the airstrip beckon.

When the engine fires, you feel every rod and tappet clanking away.

Takeoff is breathtakingly swift.

Once you’re aloft, the strut wires zing as the tiny craft surfs every zephyr.

But you don’t feel afraid.

The plane is over 90 years old. Statistically, if it were going to crash, it would’ve done so already.

Though linked to the pilot by headphones, the wind and noise dissuade chit-chat – freeing you to savour the journey alone.

As you gaze down at your past – mapped out in homes, schools, offices and parks – you may feel brief respite from life’s struggle.

And on your reluctant return to earth, you’ll very likely feel blessed that someone cared enough to grant you such a wonderful adventure.

  1. Great post Paul! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you very much, Trish; I’m so pleased you liked it. How are sales of Fisheye going? Kind regards, P. :)

  2. Lovely post! What about flying lessons for an aspie then? I can see a relaxing, carefree (if expensive) hobby …

    • Thank you, Ad. I did go for a ‘free’ flying lesson once. It comprised of me crammed into the back of a very old Cessna while a nervous student up the front did a great many bumpy touch-and-abort landings. The mathematics of navigation fries my brain. But I imagine some aspies would eat that for breakfast. I wonder what our other readers think of your innovative idea … Kind regards, P. :)
