Across the United States, families and friends will gather today to celebrate Thanksgiving. After some much needed reflection, our writing team has taken the opportunity to reflect on what they are most thankful for as it relates to aviation. Of course, we also wouldn’t be able to celebrate today without thanking our readers for their support this year.

“I’m thankful for feeling the same passion I felt when I was six years old each and every time I’m on a plane that is taking off.” – Pablo Diaz, Writer

“I am thankful for the opportunities aviation has given me and its ability to connect the world.” – Jace Moseley, Writer
