5 things you love about Naval Aviation

1. Wearing a flight suit. After four years of khakis and coveralls it's awesome.

2. Knowing that my life is in my hands...gotta know my stuff or things could go bad (and that's the "good" scenario). You know the saying...more planes in the water than boats in the sky.

3. Having a good brief, followed by a good flight, followed by a good debrief, and then getting in the car, turning it on and an awesome song comes on the radio, getting home and checking the schedule for tomorrow and seeing that I'm not scheduled.

4. The above scenario, but the day after a bad brief, bad flight, bad debrief, and gay song on the radio.

5. The fact that I could easily list a lot more than 5 things I love about what I'm doing.

But not grow up entirely... every aviator still has a bit of little kid in him. :)

1. The people
2.The fact that they pay me for this
3.Supporting the guys on the ground
4. Having debrief sodas (beer for the uninitiated) pointing out every flaw in a flight after a holy sh!t dark@ss night scaring the f$ck out of yourself and three other guys as you hone the razor sharp skills required to kill bad guys.
5.The one night a year when the Miramar O club is still the place to be Airshow Friday night.
