In mid-July I'm starting my studies at the Academy for International Aviation Careers in Brisbane that will see me have my Diploma of Applied Science (Aviation), Commercial Pilots Licence, Command Instrument Rating and Airline Transport Licence theory passes by December 2001. I also have the chance to complete my instructor rating, turboprop endorsement, pressurised aircraft endorsement and other ratings if I wish to do them. I'll start flying in the Eagle 150, then progress upto the C-172, BE76 Duchess and the C-425 Conquest.
I currently have 15 hours in the Skyfox Gazelle aircraft, but as the Skyfox is a very basic aircraft (i.e. it has no flaps or mixture), I'm going to have to basicly start from scratch when I begin my course.
