Good evening High Flyers!

It`s exactly10 pm (GMT+2) and its time for our first ever discussion on this platform. I am excited and yet at the same time, to be honest, quite nervous just like you. But for as long as we have each other then we will be fine:-)

Once again, welcome to this online session. How are you?

Hi, everyone. It feels awesome to finally be here after weeks and weeks of hard work. I look forward to learning so much more here, as well as getting a chance to meet even more High Flyers than I did at Boot Camp.

Sorry. I had lost my internet connection 🙁

Anyway, it is motivating to note that you guys have managed to find this discussion without much trouble. You are a bunch of genius people!

Perhaps you are finding this discussion forum a little more intimidating than the usual forum that you were accustomed to. We promise to do our very best to make you feel at home here and to make this new experience user-friendly.

 

How do you feel so far about this new platform?

Thank you Leslie for your kind comments.

Have you guys noticed that one big difference between this platform and our usual WhatsApp is the lack of emojis? This makes it a little difficult for all of us to express ourselves like we used to. I cannot know when you are sad or happy or just confused. But let`s try to improvise.

Imagine if we could create our own little airplane emoticons here 😉

With the level of intelligence of every member here, I`m sure that can be done.

Jane, certainly that is a possibility. Stellah thank you. Surely time is the only discoverer of perfection.

Well friends, this week we would like to develop our critical thinking skills. We want to look at AVIATION MYSTERIES, discussing theories that stretch our minds and help us think outside the box. We hope to touch on heart wrenching issues like

  • Malaysian flight MH370
  • The Bermuda Triangle
  • Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs)
  • And many more

Analysing these mysteries will help us develop our critical thinking skills and also help us become more informed of the happenings in the general aviation industry.

 

But seeing that it`s very late now and most High Flyers are probably retired to bed now, we will not be going straight into these AVIATION MYSTERIES.

If you guys have just a few more minutes to spare (less than 30 minutes), I would like us to just make sure that our house is in order and that everyone understands how to use this platform to the best.

At the end of our meeting tonight we will be on the same level of understanding with each other, hopefully.

Are you still there?

Thank you very much for staying up this late. I was wondering if we could agree on something? I think we need to change our discussions from 10 pm to a time that is a bit more comfortable for many. Usually, by the time we start our discussions most people will have already fallen asleep.

Would you like us to change our discussion start time or we just maintain the usual? If so,

when would you like us to start? What time is more convenient for you?

Good idea! I was thinking the same too and was planning to Skype you for the same. How about 8pm?

I`m waiting to hear if others would still like us to start at 20h00 GMT+2. 

Otherwise for the guest discussion leaders and myself too, that shouldn`t be a challenge at all.

Thank you all for adding your thoughts and for your much valued time in attending this session. 

I suggest that tomorrow we meet again same time (10pm) till we hear from a few other members on the issue of time rescheduling. 

Also, we are looking for one or two volunteer moderators for this forum. A moderator is just someone who makes sure that the value of this forum is maintained. If you would like to become a moderator, it means you will become more like a parent or guardian of everyone here, making sure that what members post is in line with the overall vision.

 

You know how it is. From time to time people may argue. This is common for most forums. When discussions heat up and become tense, as a moderator you will have the power to ban rude members, close topics and resolve conflicts. You can inbox us if you think you would be up for the challenge.

Tomorrow we will be going straight into our first topic on AVIATION MYSTERIES. Let`s make a date for that one 🙂

Anyone to share a scripture as we close? Thank you again!

Yes We Can Fly!

Tinashe,

Personally I struggle a lot with my belief system and I`m not too sure if faith really exists. But I must admit that having spent my time with you and Tara, I am beginning to see that there really could be a higher power above, a God who cares. Anyway thats a story for another day:-)

For now let me share a scripture than my grandmother used to love a lot:

"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing"- 1 Thessalonians 5 verse 11
