Generally speaking, we try to learn as many new things as possible on subjects/areas of our interest. But it becomes a bit challenging if it falls outside the realm of one’s studies or profession. It was easier getting fascinated by aviation, but it was difficult to get necessary information then.
Ferry, in aviation parlance, is a task of delivering an aircraft to a designated location.

On a day-to-day basis, such flights can be nothing more than “repositioning” of an aircraft due to schedule or maintenance related requirements.
