Like many of you guys here, I've wanted to fly for a long time. I remember when I was just a little kid I used to watch the big jets come into the airport and onder what it'd be like to fly.
I've often dreamed of what it'd be like to soar above the clouds into a starry night sky, to look at the world below and marvel at the incredible beauty of a world many never get to see.
Now, finally, I'm going to realise that dream. My parents have just decided to help me get started by getting a loan for 500 dollars, and starting my flight school!
I'm hoping to start by the time fall comes around, maybe a little later.
I've already got 50 bucks saved up for my discovery flight. And I've already worked out my schedule, I hope to be flying at least three days a week, taking my lessons from beginning until I get a Private license. Then maybe I'll go for an instrument rating before I move to California to go to college. In college I'll get academy training all the way up to a commercial license, plus internship with Continental Express or American Eagle.
I don't know if you've heard of it but I'm looking at Sierra Academy.
Anyone have any advise for me?
What's it like to fly a light aircraft, is it very difficult?
I would like to ask pilots what their flight training was like, what can I expect you think?
