  2. above-the-crowd said: I’d say the excitement to take a flight to go somewhere. Even if it’s a regular flight to a basic destination, it’s always this same incredible thrill when the plane takes-off. My dad is a pilot, I got that in my “blood”.
  3. saikyougutsy said: For me, it’s the thrill of being inside an airplane (from the time I enter inside the plane until I disembark), as if it’s my first time every time. I also love spotting and writing the registrations of planes (as long as I can recognize them well).

  6. lecomtedemontecristo said: I love all the things the average traveler takes for granted. The runway numbering system, runway remaining signs, reaching V1 and V2, the sterile cockpit period till 10,000 feet. I love listening to the sense of humor the pilots and ATC have.

  8. missaviatrice said: The excitement & activity around the airport, esp. getting to wait by looking at the small shops and eating. On the airplane, I don’t like their food but I just like taking off/ landing, talking w/ others, and just watch movies or listen to music.
  9. jheath said: Getting paid. (This is probably a minority answer.)
  10. thisisronald said: Meeting new people on the plane! Oh and I actually enjoy layovers :)
  11. thegirlwhocounted said: The thrill of adventure.
  12. fluidintelligence said: Seeing the people everywhere… They’re all going somewhere different and it’s just interesting to think about for me.
  13. justbelowtheradar said: Via planes, simply the fact that you’re flying! Flying is so under-appreciated these days. Airports are amazing because of the things people don’t see, like ATC, operations, etc. And traveling is good for everyone; it’s just good to see other things!

  16. soundboothsolitude said: the entire experience. I love knowing that while being at an airport and in an airplane, the entire world is waiting.:)
