The dangers and delights of piloting a small plane
from USA TODAY
The sky is a huge place — just how big becomes clear when you get up into it in a small airplane, with its windows much larger than any airliner's tiny portholes, and its exhilarating 360-degree views. You can fly from the Atlantic to the Pacific, a trip that typically takes me three days or so in my single-engine Cessna, and sometimes go for an hour or two without catching sight of another plane, even when air-traffic control is telling you they're out there — "2 o'clock, your altitude, 5 miles."
