Welcome aboard

Hey all,

I've been thinking of creating my own blog for quite a long time, and here it is, at last.
So, why here and why now?
Well, since my very first flights as a passenger on an airliner, life has taken me through many adventures and I'm just on the point of started one of the hugest I've ever been part of.

I started piloting light aircraft back in 2002, got my PPL a bit later, started flying aerobatic championships the following year, then moved onto flying gliders and at the same time left my home country to complete my studies abroad.

I believe life is either a daring adventure or nothing, I wanted it to take a turn, a huge kind of turn ...
The challenge of a complex job working in a technically demanding environment has always thrilled me. Since my very first flights as a trainee pilot and over the years, it has become a lifestyle that I wish to pursue until my highest dream comes true.

I ended up visiting FTOs and I'm starting my ATPLs (with stands for Airline Transport Pilot Licence - theorical ground school which lasts 6 months) in October.

Je ne sais pas d'où te vient l'idée de faire un blog sur blogspot pour relater ta formation, mais en tous cas c'est une excellente idée ! :-)

This post of yours was very funny. It was good. Though the "small" trip you took sounds like it was tough. Great post

Salut GolfCharlie !

Je découvre ton blog à l'instant, et j'ai hate de suivre tes aventures, surtout quand tu seras aux USA (car voler aux USA en tant que PPL est mon rêve, j'espère le réaliser, un jour....).

Je te souhaite bon continuation et j'espère te rencontrer peut-être un jour lors d'un évènement JA (moi, c'est Yoyo ;-) )


Aurélien (Yoyo sur JA)
