    As a Cop, How Far are You Willing to Fly?

    It was not how I imagined the week of police training would end. We were safely on board a private jet and taxiing down a side access road to the runway. I was amazed they came so far to get us, and they made it all happen within hours of my call for help. As we lifted off from the ground, I said a quick prayer and realized we were blessed, and my son would soon be in safe hands. On the flight back to Ohio, I asked myself, how many times did I let another cop down, or a victim, because I wasn’t willing to go – or fly – the extra distance they needed me to?

    I avoid flying at whatever cost I can. It isn't the flying I mind so much it's the helplessness of the ride to the sudden impact. That being said I have flown and will fly again I'm sure. I want to suck it up and go to England one day.
    I would not hesitate to jump a flight on an assist call. Totally different circumstance for me.

    I love to fly. Any time, any where. It is best, however, when they serve free drinks.

    Police Instructor I am glad that Richard is at a great facility that can handle his needs.

    I would love to say that I would fly as far as needed but we all know that we fall far short for all types of reasons. Your story shows us all that the distance of the flight is not always as important as the mission.

    Again great story and thanks for sharing.
    Lead from the front and always remember those who came first.
