Interlude: You're never too....

#blog #airline #avgeek

All,
This week, I flew with these two special passengers, and thought the contrast was quite intriguing!


 
Skyla, Capn Aux wishes you the best of luck in your aeronautical adventures!

Oh, and by the way, Skyla . . .
HAPPY 13!!!

Speaking of Aeronautical Adventure, I am proud to announce our two first-ever recipients of the (soon to be) coveted "Cap'n Aux Award," for exemplary performance in the name of Aeronautical Adventure!


First, to Dillon H., for his encyclopedic knowledge of the airline industry and all things Airbus!


Capn's Dillon & Aux meet for java!         Dillon and Bunny compare rides!


A short vid of Cap'n Dillon receiving his award


And to Jason "Banjo" T., for his recent accomplishment of attaining his PPL (Private Pilot License)
Now that's a helluva Capn Aux-approved action shot! 
Speaking of memorable aviation shots...



Cap'n Aux, your crew meal has arrived!

And more hilarity...
