Fly High…the 1st step of a long journey… (Updated with Photos)

It’s always my dream to become a pilot. It’s no longer possible for me to become a comemrcial pilot, hence the enxt best thing is to be a Private Gneral Aviation pilot. It is a costly dream. A PPL Licence that enables someone to fly solo cost about RM25k. I plan to start this journey once i’m a bit comfortable financially. Still i have to have few pre-requisites:

a) Enough $$$
b) Medically fit
c) Have enough time for lessons

A journey of a thousand miles begin with the first step. And somehow today i got the opportunity for an introductory flight. for the 1st time i took control of a light plane, make few turns fly around port klang and shah alam. It’s amazing!! Then i was tested and being put on a stall situation and the plane simply drops few hundred feet creating huge rush of G’s mroe than an average roller coaster. I ‘passed’ and did not puke the beehon gorenag and teh tarik that i took 20 minutes before flight.

Here are the photos as promised
