We are licensed private pilots. Flying was a childhood dream for both of us.
Tonet, the Dad, learned to fly in 2003. He completed his instrument training and is training in aerobatics (and loving it!). Tonet has 800 hours logged in Cessnas and in the Super Decathlon aerobatic airplane. He lives in Bangkok and travels too much in his job, which unhappily constricts his flying opportunities. He is a senior global executive in a multi-national corporation.
Carlo, the Son, finished his flight training in June, 2007, while still in college at the Ateneo University. Airplanes have fascinated him all his life (he was born the year Top Gun premiered). Carlo now teaches college English to freshmen at his alma mater. This constricts his flying opportunities. But he is not so unhappy about that.
As father and son, they take turns flying RP-C1513, a Cessna 152 based in the Philippines.
Carlo aspires to become Captain of the Federation Starship Enterprise, one day.
When Tonet grows up, he wants to retire and fly to the beach, every day.
