Unfortunately nothing relevant although I would like to have an extra degree in airline administration when I finish my masters, just for the fun of it.

Cool, my dad did the exact same degree at Imperial, although that was at least 40 years ago! This degree offers great job prospects.

I'm studying Aircraft Maintenance in a Modern Apprenticeship scheme...

I've already completed a BTEC National Certificate and i'm completing a National Vocational Qualification Level 3 (of about 5). I've got the B747-400 General Familiarisation course under my belt.

ALSO I've completed all but one of the 14 or so modules required for an EASA Part 66 Maintenance Technician Licence (the 'A' Licence), currently working towards my B1 training...

After having completed my PPL, I'm looking forward to starting my Instrument Rating training, but I am in serious need of  dollarsign 

Eventually, I'll make a career out of flying.  airplane

I have completed by PPL training at BFI, and I continue to train in a Seminole at BFI. Will train to be professional pilot at University of North Dakota or Embry Riddle.
Happy Flying!

I am currently enrolled in a BOCES aviation program. BOCES stands for Board Of Cooperational Educational Services and they work with public school districts in certain states. What I do is have a half day of high school every day and go to a nearby airport to train for my PPL. (It costs me nothing but my school district $15,000)  Big grin

I'm currently halfway towards a B.S. in Professional Aeronautics at Embry-Riddle (via Air Force distance learning center). Although my intentions are not to become a commercially licensed pilot, I am planning to work in the aerospace industry after I leave the service, preferably with a defense contractor, such as Lockheed Martin.

I'm currently at Southern Illinois University Carbondale for Aviation Flight and then probably moving over to Aviation Management. As of right now I'm just a few hours away from getting that PPL.

Two rules in aviation, don't hit anything and don't run out of gas, cause if you run out of gas yer gonna hit something.

I'm starting the Oxford Aviation 'Airline Preparation Course' in September, which will lead me to an fATPL with multi-jet simulator experience in a full motion 737-400 sim.

Hmmm, despite being half the world away and I bet you can feel the jealous energy I'm emanating right now... Big grin

Congratulations on getting in, if I had my choice of any flight school to do my training at it'd be Oxford. Maybe you'll be able to beat the record belonging to the Oxford graduate who got BA A320 captaincy when he was 25... if not I'm sure you'll have fun anyway. Good luck mate.

Nothign yet, but looking at Airline/Airport management courses. So far visited the University of North Dakota, the University of Western Ontario and visiting the University of New Brunswick this Friday..

UWO is in the lead so far..

AFIS (Aerodrome Flight Information Service) is what I'm training to become. I have the final exams sometime next week, and then I hope to get authorized shortly after easter.

Got a lot of reading to do in other words. (So what the hell am I doing on a.net now?)
