New Pilot in Training

Postby Kayelbe » Fri Feb 23, 2018 3:07 pm

Hello all!

Obligatory history: Like probably 99.9% of you, I've wanted to fly since I was a little kid. Life's obstacles got in the way and the dream went to the back burner until a random conversation with a coworker late last year. Turns out, we've both wanted to fly, and quickly our BS sessions evolved into a "let's just do this!" moment. For a variety of reasons, we have both decided on obtaining our SPL. Our Disco-flights are tomorrow at KGEU! Looking forward to an amazing experience!

Glendale AZ. Welcome aboard. Keep us posted on your progress. By any chance, are you flying with Light Sport Man? He has an operation in Glendale, just thought I'd ask. Good Luck!

I remember my discovery flight. It was on a turbulent day. The flight school owner told me, "If today's flight didn't scare you off, then flight training won't be a problem for you." He was right!

I think in another post you wrote that you were flying a SportCruiser. Great time of year to fly one as the bubble canopy can get hot in summer, but weather now should be really pleasant. Have a great time flying and let us know how it went!
