So I never thought I would post one of these silly threads. However, for this occasion, I thought why not.
I now officially have my PPL!
I received a scholarship through Air Cadets for a seven week course along with 32 other cadets from British Columbia.
For many years I have worked towards this day, and it was quite a ride. The days were long but it was all more than worth it.
Most of the time, I flew out of, YBL. It was pretty quiet there most of the time which was nice because it wasn't usually busy in the circuit. The scenery was truly incredible as well. I'd like to thank all of my fellow A.net members for the support and advice they have given me in the past years. The journey is only beginning!

Many Congrats to you on becoming an Airman, or is it Airwoman - ok, Aviatrix?
I have no doubt you enjoyed departure stalls and spin entry training as much as I did... However, I prefer the training I had at a busy SNA compared to YBL - nothing like being in a C-172 while following an AA 757 on the taxiway and having a WN 737 behind ya Oh, and the approach to 19L around 5pm on a weekday, don't get me started - you haven't lived!!!
