Delta Airlines has announced it will double its flights from Edinburgh to North America next summer by adding a new service to Boston in summer 2019.
I grew up in Peachtree City, Georgia, which has a heavy Delta Airlines employee presence. Most of my neighbours and friends’ dads flew for Delta. My dad was not a pilot but saw flying as a potential career path that might interest me and encouraged me to pursue a career in aviation. In high school, I was fortunate to have a close friend’s father teach me and his son how to fly a Cessna 152 piston-single. I had my first flight on 10 September 2001. The events of the following day put me on the path I am today. I knew after 11 September, I wanted to fly and I wanted to do so in the military.
