Your guide for the day is a pilot, who drives you to a small airport where a single-engine Piper is waiting. You board the plane and take off, and it feels totally different from being on a jet. You're part of the wind—of the sky—and the noise is nothing compared to what you can see all around you, so much clearer at this altitude.
"The flight conditions are perfect today," the pilot says, "practically no wind. What do you say to a few aerial stunts?"
"I'm sorry, what?"
"Stunts—with the plane? I'm not talking about anything crazy, just a little fun," he says. "I don't get the chance all that often."
