Michael says I thought you said your father was a captain. Pegs says of a plane. But, I think 70DD has a point. He might have been military. I would suspect that it is not easy to get a daughter on a military plane. It could be renting or owning a smaller plane on the weekend. Alternatively, he could have taken her on the flight simulator at the base. I am not military. But, a friend was in Highschool. His father took me on the FB111 flight simulator twice. But, my best friend flew coptors for the Air Force. I really got the impression from him that it is more complicated than the planes. In fact, his training started on planes and then went to copters. That is what the Air Force does. I do not know, other branches may do things differently. But, I do not think Pegs is going to pick it up after a few hours of peptalk. Guessing, Pegs spent the last few hours reading Flying for Dummies or something that Kalani gave her instead of taking guard duty.
