G'day Everyone,

 

My name is Oliver and I have been learning to fly since the age of 13 out of Camden in cessna 172's. Currently I am 15. I have around 28 hours in the book, been ready to solo since mid last year and have completed my GFPT course. Just need to turn 15 to do both circuit and area solos, and then get my GFPT licence, so I can't wait for December.

 

As I have run out of things to do, and passing a GFPT 'checkride', my instructor is getting me started on nav training, so next lesson I will being having my nav brief. In that I will planning a flight to Orange. Just bought my equipment and charts the other day. My end goal is to end up flying the big birds in the airlines, but at the moment I am greatly enjoying the good ol' 172!

 

Cheers guys!

Welcome Oliver, you remind me of another young person I "met" in this forum, he is now a cadet with Rex. I drove past Camden about 2 months ago, it looked pretty active. Should have flown that trip, but we can't turn back time (long boring story). Good luck!!!

Thing is Mr 747 is to enjoy your flying no matter what your in. Some once they get a bit further up in the food chain tend to look down on mere Cessna's and people learning to fly. No matter where you get to you should never stop "Learning to fly", whichever direction you should eventually head and whatever level you reach there is always something else to learn. We are all student pilots, even if we don't know it. SP
