This web site and blog are an effort to bring observations and things I love together in one space.
It will always be a work in progress. I expect to write about creativity, electric cars, fountain pens, aviation and post photography galleries as I get the files prepared.
Beginning as a kid, playing with my father’s early mainframe flight simulator, I’ve always loved things that fly. However only later in life did I find the space in my life to learn how, getting my single-engine land PPL in the summer of 2009.
Since I’m a high tech geek, it’s no coincidence that I got there with some of the latest aviation technology, passing my check-ride in a G1000 Cessna 172, after doing most of my primary training in a Cirrus SR20.
As a marketing/advertising executive and writer/producer I’m an avid photographer and videographer, and love turning those lifelong skills loose on my new flying avocation.
I’m probably not totally alone when I say that I got into flying because of the amazing visuals. My images can be found here at my blog www.rickfelty.com and my flying videos at www.youtube.com/rdfelty. I can also be reached on Twitter @rfelty.
I balance my time between work, aviation and my amazing supportive family.
For now I can tell you that I seem at times to be a writer, video producer, pilot, photographer, illustrator, musician, animal lover, husband and dad.
But not in that order.
