And so it begins...

Ever since I can remember I've always wanted to become a pilot, up until a few months ago it was still only a dream. After reading about another blogger's experiences with his pilot training, I finally asked myself why was I still only dreaming about it, why wasn't I actually doing something about it.

This fellow blogger and I had a lot in common, we're both Canadian, nearly the same age, with a wife and kids, mortgage etc.... The only difference was, he was doing something about fulfilling his dream, and I wasn't. This gave me the motivation I needed.

The next morning while I was sipping on a coffee and reading the newspaper, I told my wife that I was thinking about going out to the local airport to see if there was any flight training available, she's always known of my desire to become a pilot and agreed that I should go check it out. I then flipped to the next page in the newspaper, and right smack dab in the middle of the page was an add for a local flight school... was that a sign or what?

After I finished the paper, I went to the airport that beautiful August morning, spoke with the flight instructor of the school and signed up for ground school.

And so it begins...

This could be my blog entry, but I don't have a blog :)

I went on my first intro flight two weeks ago, and have done one lesson since then.

Looks like you have a 14 month head start.

I look forward to reading through your postings.
