This month marks 3 years since I started flying, so following on from the first two posts, I thought I would recap what I have managed to achieve.
- I finished my ATPL exams – These exams were one of the most difficult things that I have ever done. What made it worse is that they were being done around a full-time job. It took me 2 years to finish but I am so happy I managed to pass them all.
- CPL ME IR course – I am currently on the IR part of my CPL ME IR course, a course which I hope to complete very soon.
The learning curve has been quite steep but I am enjoying the challenge of it. It finally feels like I am becoming a “real” pilot.
- Visited more airfields – I have stretched my wings and visited many more airfields this year. I am a much more confident pilot these days, but I guess that is natural with more experience.
All in all, I have made good progress during this year and I hope that bigger and better things lie ahead in year 4. I am looking forward to doing an MCC / JOC course and to finally be able to apply for flying jobs.
