Here goes nothing….Author: John Kelly | Category: flight school
Well…I signed the loan and told my work that I would be going to flight school on April 1st. No turning back now! I’m so excited I haven’t been able to sleep well (or that could be the massive amounts of coffee I drink at work). This is something I have dreamed of ever since I was a kid and now it is becoming a reality.
Now it is true that the aviation economy is not at it’s high point. But I think of it this way; Treat the aviation economy like the stock market. Buy low and sell high. Well, it’s hard to think of it getting any worse that it is now; so I figure it can only get better. Right?
A little about myself. I am 22 years old and am married to the most wonderful woman ever (she would have to be to put up with my aviation craze). Over the past few years I have earned my Private Pilot’s Certificate and my Instrument Rating add on from flight instructors at my local airport. I believe this to be the most inexpensive and efficient way to start out. More on that later…
The flight school I have chosen is Hillsboro Aviation out of Hillsboro, Oregon. Many factors have come in to play when choosing this school and after literally a year of researching, my choice is clear. Since this is more of an introductory post, I will not go too much into detail, but don’t worry, I will lay out my reasoning and research in future posts(so stay tuned ).
One last thing…the point of this blog is give other pilot-career-aspiring folks out there a chance to hopefully educate themselves from my mistakes and maybe even right choices every now and then. I, in no way, consider myself a good writer, so you will have to bear with it. But I will do my best.
