I am very excited to announce that this Saturday I will begin my flight training with my instructor, Chris Pickerell! After finalizing details on Monday, Mr. Pickerell and I are ready to begin the extensive journey for me to get my privet pilot rating. Since my Summer has been very busy, all my nerves and excitement about getting my privet rating have somewhat taken a back seat, but not anymore. I cannot wait to begin flying!
I’d like to thank all the sponsors who have donated their money and their resources to help me, and others, learn to fly. I would like to thank Sporty’s pilot shop for donating their Learn To Fly online ground school course. This course has already taught me so much, even before my first lesson! This course is easy to use, and extensively covers the topics needed to learn to fly. Additionally, I would like to thank My GoFlight for sending me an amazing, customized flight bag that I will use for years to come. Again I would like to thank everyone and every business that has contributed to make this scholarship possible. Because of these donations and the help from FMA, I am able to pursue my dreams which I never thought possible.
