My passion for aviation can be attributed largely to my father. I spent a large part of
my childhood at air shows, air museums and planespotting. Eventually, at the age of 16,
I had a chance to fly for myself. Through the RAF's Air Cadet program I was able to fly
a Vigilant T1 powered glider. From that moment I was hooked. Sadly, due to other commitments
I could not continue to train with the RAF, but decided to begin saving for private lessons.
In 2015 I finally took the plunge and began taking lessons at Elstree aerodrome in Hertfordshire.
I am currently working towards an EASA PART-FCL, which is the Europe-wide Private Pilot's License.
I currently take lessons fairly infrequently as my immediate focus is on studying for and passing
the nine theory exams required to take my checkride. I hope to be able to attain my license by late 2017.
I have created a youtube channel where I occasionally post footage from flying lessons recorded from a
head-mounted camera. Below is a link to the channel and an example video from it.
