It’s been a long time coming.. My ultimate dream now has a date. I received a letter today stating the starting date for my pilot training. It will start on February 4th 2013. Today marks the starting of my blog.
I am about to start a 2.5-year training to become an airline transport pilot. I start my flight training at the Finnish Aviation Academy in February 2013. I will complete my PPL(A) (Private Pilot’s License) at EFHF (Helsinki-Malmi Airport) after which my training continues at EFPO (Pori Airport). I will complete the NF(A) (Night Flight rating) in the fall and then continue with with IR(A) (Instrument Rating), CPL(A) (Commercial Pilot License), ATPL(A) (Airline Transport Pilot License) theory, Upset Recovery Training, ME (Multi-Engine rating) and finally MCC(Multi Crew Co-operation) training.
I have enjoyed reading many flight training blogs over the years. And as well as sharing my experiences with family and friends, I wanted to share them with other future pilots as a kind of payback. Flying has been a dream of mine for over 15 years. I hope everybody gets to fulfill their own, sooner or later. And I hope you enjoy this blog.
During the 2-month countdown to the school start I plan to write about the application process and the aircraft I will be flying during my training, at least. Keep coming back!
