Wonder How Long It Takes to Learn to Fly a Helicopter?

With all the driving I do...and I do a ton of driving...over 34, 000 miles in a year, I have been thinking lately that I should take some time and learn to fly a helicopter then purchase one instead of a car. This idea has taken on a new urgency since I learned that the qualifying regional Irish competition (that same one that one needs to win in order to compete in Ireland in August) is on the same day as Haley's PRYSM orchestra concert. One event is in Parsippany and the other back home in Philly, a good 2 hours away not including extra time for traffic. Ugh!!  Technically she needs to be leaving for Philly prior to the time she'd be competing. Not quite sure how that's going to work out.

Maybe I could use some Flue Powder....does anyone know a wizard? Or a time machine?

The end of May/beginning of June is a really busy time. Orchestra concerts, classical teacher's studio concert, the Irish competition, then after all that a few really nice Irish gigs for the kids. Haley has been practicing more. Her teacher always jokes about "doubling your practice"....well, I think, she's almost met that goal.

You do need a helicopter...although Flue Powder would definitely be more useful!

Your "very busy mom" line in your About Me doesn't do justice to your car mileage! :)
