Not many people know that I crashed my first commercial airliner when I was eleven years old. Thankfully, it was only a simulation. My father is a pilot, and when I was in middle school and most adamantly wanted to be like him, I participated in a week-long summer aviation camp. Undeniably, the highlight of the week was the chance to go to a flight training center and (attempt to) navigate a jet through takeoff and landing via the flight simulator. Even now that I am training to become a lawyer rather than a pilot, it fascinates me how something so large and cumbersome can possibly lift off the ground. And now, after an incredible day with BGD for the Indy Signature Event, I have also begun to appreciate the marvel that is how racecars can possibly stay on the ground.
