My interest in aviation started in 2006 when I took a flight in a vintage, round engine gull wing Stnson. I still remember the feeling I had when given the controls and saying to myself “I can do this”. I started flight lessons the next week in a Luscombe tail dragger. Though life has continued to throw obstacles my way I always made time for learning by taking workshops, attending airshows, reading aviation magazines and flying with friends. This has kept my dream of becoming pilot in command all ways present.
On this journey I have met so many friends, mentors and instructors who have continued to encourage me to push my limits and believe in myself. Success is 2016.
