In bringing an aircraft towards landing on terra firma, the last part of the flight is called the approach. There is a lot of activity in the cockpit as the pilot prepares. In many flights, a checklist is brought forth and followed. The speed is regulated with the fuel mixture and the engine manifold pressure and the flaps are set and so forth. The landing gear put down and locked. Many things are brought together to make it a smooth approach. The compass and the approach charts. Focus on the point of touchdown. Observe for other aircraft in the pattern. Communicate your intentions. Fly the airplane, first and foremost.
We’ve been approaching the end of the MasterKey experience and I’ve observed myself being concerned that I may be missing something on my checklist. Let’s see.

But do I really want to put this beauty down yet? Naaa. It’s freedom up here and time to just do a touch and go and head back to the heavens, the realm of the Universal and feel the joy and freedom that the eagles know and that I know. My journey is just beginning and despite a perfect approach, my flight is ahead and not behind me. I am God’s greatest miracle. I am just really taking off.
