"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."– Leonardo Da Vinci
DaVinci’s quote captures the essence of what flying does to the soul of a pilot, and it reflects the vision of Above All Aviation. At Above All we are passionate about exposing people to flight in a way that forever enhances their lives and enriches their souls.
