My name is Roxanne and I'm 42 years old. I'm from Montreal.
I'm currently following my dream of becoming an airline pilot. I am a student in a pilot training schools around Montreal.
I was miserable in my previous career. Couldn't go on anymore. I took all the courage I had to find out what I was going to do next.
I'm in my best shape ever… I am proud of the road I've taken. And I found my dream job… In fact, I always wanted to do this...
In Summer 2020, I passed with great success my PPL licence !
THANKS TO EVERY CONTRIBUTORS AND SUITORS SO FAR, THANKS TO YOU I GOT THROUGH COVID FIRST WAVE AND I SUCCEEDED IN MY PPL! No doubt it made a huge difference and this is why I am where I am now.
I am now starting my CPL (commercial pilot licence). I am also flying on my own for cross country hours, and I also wrote my CPL exam, the CPAER in December of 2020. Next is my Night Rating and then my Multi-Engine rating. I suppose in Summer 2021 I will prepare for my commercial flight test, and then go on with my IFR rating later in the Fall.
As you can see, becoming a pilot is not easy. It's time and effort you need to dedicate to your training. I currently have a freelance job that I love, but Covid makes it impossible to sustain well enough to continue my training at the moment. Normally, it's a great job, it's part time and it gives me enough money and time to invest in training and studying.
Flying school is VERY expensive, it costs about 60-70K to become an airline pilot!
At 42 years old, I'm mature and experienced enough to be disciplined and focused. I have university degrees and I'm very motivated to become a pilot.
I need some help to pursue my dream! If you're client of mine and you appreciate my work, if you're a pilot wanting to give back, if you're simply sympatethic to my story, give anything you feel ok with. And if you can't donate, no worries, share to your friends who might could!
I can't thank you enough.
