It worked for me
My story is similar, however my then girlfriend had never been in a small plane. My RV-4 however was just ready for its first flight, and all she could do was watch for 40 hrs until I finished my fly-off time. As my first passenger, she immediately was hooked, and the rest is history. The RV became our choice of chapel in witch we married at a mile high. The grin lives on after every flight!
