"I Want To FLY!"-(Youth) My store to raise funds for flying lessons
http://www.cafeshops.com/IWantToFly

Hi!
My name is Trace. I am 13 years old and LOVE to fly planes and gliders.

I have a deal with my parents to split the cost of my flying lessons. My dad
helped me start my "I want To FLY!" store to earn money selling products with
my aviation pics on them. (I also love taking pics of airplanes!) I make
about $2 for each item sold.

Please have a look. I hope you find something you like.

Thanks!
Trace

Flying lessons are available at 3R7 for free, ask for Gerald. Bring your
own plane, he doesn't have one to teach you in, our ground in Louisiana is
a bit too flat for gliders...

I'm paying my CFI (4R7) $20 an hour, hope to be finished in under 2 months
total, start to finish...

Started last month and hope to finish my cross countries in the next 2
weeks...

Are you for real? A kid comes up with a great idea to help pay for an
enthusiastic interest in flying and you quote her FARs? You don't have
kids, do you?

Hi!
My name is Trace. I am 13 years old and LOVE to fly planes and gliders.

I have a deal with my parents to split the cost of my flying lessons.


Flying lessons are available at 3R7 for free, ask for Gerald. Bring your
own plane, he doesn't have one to teach you in, our ground in Louisiana is
a bit too flat for gliders...

I'm paying my CFI (4R7) $20 an hour, hope to be finished in under 2 months
total, start to finish...

Started last month and hope to finish my cross countries in the next 2
weeks...

Are you for real? A kid comes up with a great idea to help pay for an
enthusiastic interest in flying and you quote her FARs? You don't have
kids, do you?



Helps to be aware of the rules, depending when they expect first flight...

Childs parent already wrote me and thanked me for the information...

(used to ride my bike for an hour each way just to hang out at the

airport)

Ride my bike to the airport for lessons, each day...

Just have night and crosscountry left to do, started last month...
