Stands to reason there may be an airport near the school your loved one is graduating from this spring. Consider flying to the graduation ceremonies now that you have your ticket. The best part about general aviation flying is that you are not restricted to large, international airports. For instance, the closest major airport to Boston University is Boston’s Logan International Airport, one of the nation’s busiest airports. Instead of competing with big iron, you—the new GA pilot—can access Boston from any of the nearby airports such as Norwood, Beverly, Waltham, or Bedford in Massachusetts; Hampton or Nashua in New Hampshire; or Smithfield in Rhode Island. All will be much easier to land at than busy Logan. With Uber and Lyft—and the courtesy car!—Boston University is within reach.
