    Damaris, in Seattle the airspace is class B aronud Seatac airport. I live one mile away. There is a Boeing field airport across from where I work. The ASA ground school DVD for the private license talks about Seatac airport.Seattle is known for its almost constant cloudiness. This crunches the time available to practice for a private license. There is an acredited school fifteen minutes away from me that teaches flying.Seattle is a small place with a lot of highways and skyscrapers. I drive near the Space Needle every week. There is a Museum of Flight three minutes away from my place of work. Bonnie Dunbar works at the museum. It’s a pretty large place! It has a NASA area (moon rock etc), wall with many pictures of astronauts from this state, fantastic Boeing area, many war rooms, and a few famous planes such as airforce one etc. They had last December a simulation of one of the nodes on the ISS.Anyway, every year we get to see the Blue Angels for free. It’s a big event. A few months ago we also saw two F22s take-off and land. Boeing manufacutres the two wings and aft fuselage, so we got to walk aronud them and get team pictures. We got to hear a few of the pilots speak. One of them was a woman. Boeing gave out posters and F22 coins. I was on one of the major highways at the time the F22s took off (4:30 PM sharply). I saw trucks go off the road because of these amazing take-offs! I think they called the police.I’m still searching my mailbox for that precious NASA letter.Christopher Mario Lusardi
