So, I don't think I've ever done one of these posts on this blog, so I thought I'd do a little introduction before rolling into the whole thing, or you'll probably (I'm not assuming anything :P) be like "waaaat??"
|(This is a really old photo of me, but the only nice one of me with a plane, as I have recently discovered)|
I don't really know when I started wanting to be a pilot, but I've been wanting it for so long now, that I can't imagine myself growing up to be anything else. Except maybe an astronaut :D
|Aww cool - she actually looks like me :3|
|This is what came up when I Googled "the flying bug" :L|
Anyway, because of school and A levels and stuff, it was super difficult for me to fit training in with school and studying and stuff * buzzkill *, but now that it's finally the summer holidays(!!) I have time to do all that jazz.
One of the kinda milestones that I'm working towards is my first solo flight, which (for those of you that don't know) is the first time you are allowed to fly the plane without your instructor present. Evidently, I haven't got there yet, mainly because I have to have passed the Aviation Law exam - which I'm studying for at the moment :L The weather is suuuper nice and I can't meet up with my amigos because I'm stuck inside studying for the exam. Hopefully, I'll pass it soon, and then (JOY of ALL JOYS) I get to start revising for the other 6 exams :L
But, once I've passed air law, I'll (hopefully) be able to take my first solo flight :D
|This book is reallllllyyyyyy loooooonnnnngggggg|
I wonder if there are any aspiring/actual pilots out there reading this now; if so, leave me a comment below - maybe you've got some tips for the exams, or maybe you want to know more about this flying thing :D
