Hobbies

I like extreme sports. I am a Private Pilot License holder and I enjoy flying a single-engine Skyhawk on a day with a breeze and clear sky for sightseeing at new places. Here is a photo I took on the day I passed my VFR check-ride with a Cessna 172SP tail numbered N615JA (pronounced skyhawk-six-one-five-juliet-alpha) at KESN (Easton Airport, MD). One of my dreams is to establish my own aviation school in Mainland China to teach youngsters recreational flying. I was also an amateur auto racer, but I stopped racing after married. Scuba diving is also one of my favorite sports to explore a new place.
