Think learning to fly is beyond your reach?

Updated: Sep 24, 2018

I used to think so...

You see, I'm no math whizz or physics guru - I'm just an ordinary girl who's better with creativity than nutting out a math equation, but I really enjoyed flying.

I wasn’t looking to join the commercial aviation scene, I just wanted to fly for my own enjoyment and purposes and maybe one day own my own aircraft…

For years, the thought of crunching those Albert Einstein looking aviation formulas deterred me from learning to fly.

I came up with all the excuses; I’m not smart enough, I can’t afford it, what if I fail?

When I did finally make the first step towards learning to fly, I realised that my preconceived notions and concerns on learning to fly were unfounded.

I could do this!

I didn’t have to be a math whizz, I just needed commitment and passion. With the help and encouragement from a great flight instructor I now proudly hold a Recreational Pilots Licence.

You could do this too.

Throughout your training it can be easy to feel a little overwhelmed at times, there will be days when your brain is so full with all this new information that it feels like it could implode. There will be days when you feel like you’ve taken one step forward and two steps back with your skill level.

But remember everyone learns differently and at a different rate.

And that’s okay.

You’ll soon realise that flying is not a destination, it’s a journey – one where you never stop learning. Any good pilot will tell you that, even the most experienced pilots are still learning.

What I can tell you, is that learning to fly is like nothing else… It’s exhilarating, it’s challenging and it’s very, very infectious!

Especially after your first solo flight!

That moment when you realise that it’s just you and the aircraft. No instructor. Just you. It’s the most terrifying and exhilarating experience all rolled into one.

You’ll never forget it!

Definitely a bucket list moment - being in control of your own aircraft!

So for those who think learning to fly is beyond their reach...well, think again.

Why should the career pilots have all the fun, right? You can choose to be a recreational pilot and head off on the adventure of a lifetime. Or you may decide that you love it so much that you want to make a career change.

Whatever your motivation for wanting to learn, flying is for young and old, male and female, left and right brain thinkers...

So give it a go!
