Grande Prairie, AB
I am a commercial flight student in Grande Prairie, AB. I have completed my PPL and am now working towards my Commercial and IFR at the local flight school Adventure Aviation. It has been a great time so far, I have gotten about 85 hours now in about 6.5 months.
I am working at it as fast as I can while still working full time, which is a huge advantage to being able to do my training at a local flight school. I am really hoping to fly medevacs when I am done my training and eventually one day work my way up to the left seat in a 747!
For anyone thinking about getting your Pilot Licence, just go for it! It is an experience like no other. The only regret I have is not doing it sooner. Flying has just consumed me, it is all I think about and all I want to do with all my spare time. Every time I see a plane landing or taking off I have to stop and watch.
Good luck to all of you out there and we will see you along the way at some point.
