Here’s a guest post by Paul Guerrier with a good overview of getting started in aviation.
When you were a child, you probably dreamed of being a pilot. It’s rare that a person grows up uninterested in flying and then suddenly decides that he wants to fly. It’s a lifelong passion. Sadly many kids give up on it when they grow up, but you don’t have to. That dream can be a reality if you’re willing to work at it. While the process is difficult, it’s nowhere near impossible. The most important steps are finding the right school and getting all of your required flight hours in. Then, it’s a matter of practice, practice, practice.
