“We Flew To…” The Flight Deck for Steak

"We Flew To..."
1. “We Flew To…” The Flight Deck for Steak

Let’s fly to get food! This series focuses on a tour of small airports — and their restaurants — from a passenger plane princess (I mean that in the most sarcastic manner – I am such a nervous flier) POV. First stop – Dubois Regional Airport to eat steak at The Flight Deck.

Prior to this trip, I had only been on a small plane once — a Cessna that went around Pittsburgh and back to Beaver County Airport. It had been about 1.5 years since I had flown on a small plane, but I was convinced to take this flight because:

  1. There were not only one, but two pilots on board.
  2. The aircraft (Cirrus) had a parachute (for the plane, not for people to jump out).
  3. The plane’s tail number had the name Whiskey in it.
  4. There was steak involved.

As for any photo-op event, the outfit is critical. The weather was about 90 degrees Fahrenheit that June 1st. But, I had just bought a denim romper from The Gap that was giving me Top Gun vibes, so I went with it (when have I ever let the weather truly dictate my outfit if I’m on a mission?). I did be sure to use some of my favorite smelling body products prior to boarding (stress + heat = sweat, haha).

I wore:

  • A puff sleeve denim romper from The Gap
  • Jessica Simpson Danny cork platform sandals (similar style here)
  • Burberry sunglasses
  • Gucci belt
  • Lilly Pulitzer Kat cork crossbody  

After taking some pictures, we got into the plane and the pilots performed safety checks. Then it was time for takeoff, a short cruise to The Flight Deck, and landing for steak.

We went on a Thursday, which is their steak night. I got a bacon-wrapped filet mignon, baked potato, and side salad for the cheapest price I’ve ever seen for that kind of steak in a restaurant — $15.99. The other choice was a NY Strip, which one of the pilots ordered and greatly enjoyed.

After a quick bite to eat we headed back. The whole flight was smooth and beautiful as the sky turned off its lights.

Signing off,

Romeo Bravo Kilo (this would be my name using the “plane alphabet”)
