The Dream

Cessna 152After nearly 15 years of talking about it and patiently waiting, I’ve finally taken the decision and made the commitment. I’m about to embark on my journey towards obtaining a Light Aircraft Pilot’s License (LAPL). I cannot deny that there is some apprehension, and not a little trepidation, but I am very excited even though the fact that it’s really happening is still sinking in.

I invite you to experience the journey with me through this blog. Exciting as the prospect is, it’s also a daunting journey and sharing the highs and lows with others will go a long way to helping me stay focused. Please feel free to post comments, ask questions and most of all offer encouragement.
