Flying is awesome! I loved it so much that I decided to go into pilot training and major in Air Transportation in college. I have been on airplanes since I was very little, but what really got me hooked was when I did a discovery flight in one of the tiny airplanes, probably a Cessna 152. I sat up front next to the pilot and just had a closer connection to that flight rather than an airliner. I was probably 10 at the time. Then during midflight, the pilot let me have the controls, and I officially fell in love with flying ever since.
I know flying is not everyone's cup of tea, and that's okay. It's still a relatively new mode of transportation, and people just aren't used to it yet, compared to cars, boats, trains. Maybe that's what makes it so scary to some people?
Try going on a discovery flight at a local small airport sometime. They are usually happy to set one up for you. It might make you more comfortable with flying if you not already are. See the world from a different view, get inspired, have fun, do something different.
And as always, your art is amazing
