Why to become a private pilot? Or why I fly…
I enjoy the views from above, I enjoy to play with the clouds, to surf between the clouds, to feel free, to follow procedures and so on.
The list would be very long.
That’s why I’ve tried to make a compilation of my flights to share with you some of my flying adventures and tell you why I fly and whye it’s worth it to become a private pilot.
I hopy you will enjoy it!
Hi Stan, I wanted to ask you how you selected the flight training school to do your flying with? My team and I have done a lot of research over the past years as we read a lot about the pilot shortage and thought that there wasn’t a good online source where individuals who wanted to become pilots could go to for them to see all the available Pilot Schools and funding options. With this in mind we created our website, https://www.aviationfly.com/pilot/training-institutes/ which features over 200 Pilot training schools in the Asia Pacific region. It would be great to hear your thoughts on it. Thank you in advance.
I’ve checked the site and it’s fine. It’s easy to find the information, which is cool.
I think the way of selecting the flight school depends on every individual. Work, family, time available, goal (how quick you want to achieve it), finances, distance from where you live, reputation, fleet, possibility to obtain EASA licence, possibility of getting hired by an airline or finding a job, testimonials from other students or reviews in the pilot forums, etc. etc…
I think that the price is the most important topic; if there is flexibility, it’s not a problem to move to another continent to finidh the course.
Hope this helps.
