What is the feeling of flight?

The Feeling of Flight

When the plane starts for the take off and the gears disengage you get the wonderful feeling of power that almost pushes you back into the chair. And suddenly, you are flying, rising in the air as if the ground you are standing on just pulled itself out from under you. This is the emotion that must accompany flight: the sensation of flying.

It is a moment when the character feels like he is flying up to the sky.

The first launch creates a sense of acceleration and energy that can excite an individual. There is the impression of a weight, a soft pressure on the back which tries to push one down in the chair as the plane takes off with maximum inclination. The sensation increases until the moment that you get the impression of being almost off the ground and joyful as you approach the finish of the running strip.

At the point when the wheels come off the ground, the thought of it is that you are on the right track with the flight into the air. It is quite like the feeling that hits people as they get on a plane, when you get that sinking feeling or feeling of butterflies in the tummy as one goes from the ground to the sky. That is a scene which is always exciting and full of tension and even if one watches it for the nth time, there is still that feeling of suspense.

If you don’t have a window seat, as the plane stabilizes and you get your first clear look out the window, the world outside may seem remarkably foreign. What was so impressive when viewed from the ground has now shrunk to a map where fields, forests and cities, a colorful quilt. The mountains themselves appear to be diminished in size, even when they are as vast as the Rp.

Standing with your eyes fixed on the vertical expanse directly below interrupted only by cloud formations, you start experiencing a sense of dizziness as one is when 500 meters high in the sky so far away from the regular life. It is a view as if flying on a bird and gives rise to a sense of contemplation which comes with the musing of the flight path over the ground.

That Floating Sensation

As the plane ascends to its cruising altitude, the sense of flying becomes less palpable but remains as enchanting as before. While the plane was flying high above clouds, there are no factors to remind that one is in the air and moving at the speed of approximately 800 miles per hour. You are aware of the basic principles of the flight on your head level – but there is much more on a subconsciously emotional level: this is trickery.

One might even feel, in the comfortable climate-controlled cabin, as if he is in a boat being towed rather than at a speed of 500 miles per hour. Combined with the low grumble of the engines, it provokes reflections and idle thoughts while outside the world flashes by out the window.

Little Jolts of Turbulence

When you have been seated for a while lost in your thought, you are likely to be surprised by a jerk or a jolt that brings you back to reality to find yourself in a flying contraption that is governed by principles of aerodynamics and controlled by various forces such as lift, drag, thrust and gravity, coupled by forces of nature such as turbulence.

While some passengers may feel uncomfortable during the periods of relatively moderate turbulence, these ripples appear to be quite enticing to adrenaline-junkies who love the sensation that comes with each bounce – the feeling of falling or being lifted up. These sensations make the feeling of flight less passive and emphasize what was mentioned above – dynamics of sailing through the skies.

Utilizing the Clouds as a Theme

Gaining height to clouds makes the normal flying to be taken as a magical flight to an unknown planet. When you are flying your plane and finally enter the soft cottony vapor, the inside of the cabin is warm and has a warm light. When one looks through the window, one is really gazing into an abyss of light; one gets no feel of movement or location but only dazzling white.

Lying on the cloud makes you experience a pleasant reduction of your senses since the sound of the engines diminishes and your view gets erased by the white expanses of space. This can definitely be described as a magical, otherworldly state – as if one has been put into a limbo for a brief time – not quite celestial, not quite terrestrial.

When the plane finally pulls out of this glowing shell and returns to the clear blue yonder, you are kind of saddened that the experience was like waking from a pleasant dream and you find yourself longing to float within a cloud that stretches on for what seems like forever.

The Final Descent

The moment the pilot comes on to announce final destination information as the aircraft approaches the particular airport you are headed to, you feel the usual queasiness in the stomach. They are unprecedented power, a gift that breaks the law of gravity and flies in the heavens. The magic of flight is coming to an end. Outside as through the window you get more specific outlines of landscapes, roads and buildings, airfields emerging from the abstract concepts.

The plane starts to start slowly towards the ground and the bodily senses become aware of forces which are strange after the long voyage through the sky – noise grows louder, the carriage tips in turbulence, the pull downwards is stronger in the seat.

Perhaps there is a twinge of the romanticism of flight that dies as the plane gently descends to the concreteness of the runway and the tires roll on the pavement. Although as you collect your luggage and disembark through the arrival’s jet bridge, you take with you the epic feeling – a bodily recalled feeling that will live within one until savored again as one steps on the plane’s wings for another aerial adventure on the next skyward journey.
