Pilot training

My name is Christopher, i am 26 years old, I have always dreamed of becoming a commercial pilot, I had many trial lessons and pleasure flights whilst at school. When picking my GCSEs  I told my teacher I wanted to be a pilot, he said “ you need to pick something else because becoming a pilot is so far out of your reach”.  I was gutted to say the least, so I took his advise, I followed in my dads footsteps and became a car mechanic, I worked extremely hard at college to get my qualifications and I am still currently working as a mechanic today.

I started to research extensively, I also managed to meet a few airline pilots who told me it was absolutely possible and within reach, from then on I was 100% motivated to do what ever it takes, I started my PPL at Denham in 2014. I have managed to self fund all of my PPL, hours building, night rating and ATPL ground school. I am currently doing my ATPLs with Bristol ground school and continuing to work to fund my training, however the next part is the CPL,MEIR,MCC which I would like to be able to complete as full time as possible. I would very much appreciate donations,  but also advise, help and I would love to meet more professional pilots to help me achieve my goal.  Thank you in advance and I look forward to keeping you updated with what’s going on in my training.28756182_15224343940_r.jpeg
