    And I completely love it. There's no better career.

    Okay so I'm not officially a pilot-yet.

    I've been on one flight lesson and it was just an intro but I absolutely fell in love. I'm wondering how to work toward getting a student pilot license? Do I have to go through a ground school or is it just based on flight hours?

    Almost There

    I'm just about to solo!!! But for some reason I've been having trouble with my landings. I haven't had very good days recently and I seem to be unable to bring the plane down. I had a good conversation with my instructor that seemed to clear up the confusion, but only time...

    Update #2 - An Interesting Situation

    Hey y'all! Today I was scheduled to go flying at 4:30pm. At 4:15, I got a phone call from my instructor, saying that we have to carpool to an airport an hour away to fly the plane(at this hour away airport) back to the "home base" airport. So we drove there in his car, flew...
