Our Time with Deaf Pilots at Tea, SD

Deaf Pilots Association Fly-In 2006

Several deaf pilots flew in at Tea, S.D. — a small town just south of Sioux Falls — and met with our members from the local deaf community. My wife and I, along with our friends, took our four deaf children to meet them. They generously took us up for plane rides and answered questions about flying and how deaf folks can become licensed pilots.

They were inspirational! We totally enjoyed our time with them, and I got my itch to get my private pilot’s license back… I guess it’s back to X-Plane again. :-)
