I had the time of my life this past weekend – Tim McGraw’s “Live Like You Were Dying” pretty much sums it up. After dreaming about skydiving for years, I finally mustered up the courage, visited the Parachute School of Toronto - and more importantly, found a few other newbies who wanted to try it with me!
We headed to Baldwin, On., where the school is located – complete with a morning of diving, laughs, and tummy butterflies.
Their experienced instructors took us 13,500 feet into the air, where we jumped out of the aircraft. Their staff, instructors, and media gurus (I pick the word ‘guru’ because it takes a sh!t load of skill to jump out of a plane and open your parachute, all while taking photos and videos) were as nice as ever.
Do I recommend this? I HIGHLY recommend it.
Today, I had the chance to see something the average Joe wouldn’t normally get to see. I had a chance to check out one of Toronto Pearson’s runways for an educational one-hour session.
To be honest, I literally know nothing about cars. Turbo, what’s under the hood, or rims – that does nothing for me.
But the colours … I love the pretty colours.
Most days fly by, all carbon copies of each other. However, today was a bit different; today, I attended the Canadian International Air Show – well, Media Day, at least.
Toronto Pearson/GTAA welcomed pilots and their aircrafts for its annual visit and stay at Landmark Aviation.
The event was made extra special when Make a Wish Foundation showed up. A number of children had their wishes granted when they got to meet real-life pilots and get up-close and personal with the airplanes they fly.
