What was the aircraft (non-commercial) that you took your very first ride in as either pilot or passenger?
My first non-commercial flight was my first training flight at Ft Wolters, Tx in an OH-13 helicopter. My first flight ever was in a TTA DC-3 from Ft Polk to Ft Wolters after I finished basic training. Still flying helicopters for the police dept. Also flew all kinds of fixed wing over the last 44 years. Could not have wished for a better career.
In 1949, my dad saw they were giving airplane rides at Indianapolis Weir Cook Municipal Airport, and so he went along with me on my first ride--in a red Beechcraft V-35. I was two years old, and have been hooked on aviation ever since!
August 1968 @ Mohall North Dakota, Piper PA-18. My first lesson and first ride in any airplane all in one half hour of fun. It was a grass strip then and mostly used by Ag planes. I had a chance to fly myself there last summer and it is now a very nice paved runway, and still mostly used by Ag planes.
