An old school “FC Learning Moment”, within an inspiring story!

My main take away is: watch those instruments closely – the old “temp and pressure in the green” is so easy to do casually and almost by blind repetitive action – but you really need to actually look when you check.

It was cool to get an “old school Flight Chops learning moment” and wrap it up into a larger story about inspiration and chasing dreams. 🙂
