"Science, freedom, beauty, adventure -- aviation offers it all."
Bonjour, Ciao, Hola, Hello! and welcome aboard my new website!  My name is Mark   Becker.  I am fourteen-years-old, and am very fascinated with aviation.  In order to meet new people and hopefully encounter new experiences, I have used  my web design skills and set up my own aviation website dedicated to myself and  you.  Please search my site as you like, and return once in a blue moon or as  you wish.  Thank You.

Mark's Flight Fund                      OFFICALLY BEGAN MAY 7, 2004, at 4:20 PM/16:20 CST
Mark's Flight Fund has been created to accomplish my dream: to travel throughout the world and fly on various airlines and aircraft.  The Flight Fund is my one out of several attempts to reach my dream.  Once I have a job, much of my salary will be put towards my Flight Fund.  Now, I allow anyone who visits my site, watched my promotion video on their local news station, or even read my letter to the editor, to contribute to my Flight Fund.

"Mark's Flight Fund" has no relation to America West's Frequent Flyer Program, also named Flight Fund.

-  Yes!  A great no-homework-night, and a miniature adventure on a school night!  Today I went to Fargo's Hector Intl. Airport to pick up my grandparents.  I once had a tour of the whole airport and its facilities at Fargo.  Often, we originate in Fargo whenever we fly.  But today's visit was special: I was meeting the Northwest Airlines Station Manager to meet some crew and visit the aircraft for some photographing opportunities.

On our school orchestra trip today to St. Paul, MN, we passed the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport.  I never expected to see a Northwest B747 pass right over our bus!  Luckily, I was in the back seat to have an inspiring view of it swiftly glide towards the runway.  I found the city of St. Paul very fascinating and motivating for myself to further explore cities I have never visited.

Today we had our career fair in Family & Consumer Sciences class allowing younger students to learn about the careers we chose.  I of course chose a pilot.  With a B777 Continental model and pictures I took the other day in Fargo, I spoke to a  fifth grade boy who knew of other aircraft and seemed interested talking to me.

6/3/04 - School has ended and summer has just begun.  The Summer of Aviation has arrived.
