Hi everyone, and happy Tuesday :)
Today, I went to Portsmouth to do the paperwork and Drug Test for Port City Air FBO, and before I went in, I met a kid who told me his dad flies a Cirrus SR-22.
I honestly did not expect the response he would give me. I greeted him, asked about his aircraft, and his first words were, “You interested in Aviation?” I of course said I’ve flown twice in a Cessna 172, but told him that Flight School was just too expensive.
Next thing you know, He tells me he owns a computer store for computer repairs and offers me Flight Lessons if I help him repair computers!
I have repaired one computer in my lifetime, but I am very good with Electronics, as I sometimes open some up for fun or just to look at the internals.
This is something I cannot get away from, and so he gives me his number.
Now here is the issue: I will begin working at Port City Air starting next week, with me working second shift (1pm-9pm) in Portsmouth, NH (PSM). It’s a 45min drive to get to PSM, and so this instructor lives in Lebanon, NH (About an hour drive). I would have to work something out in order for this to work, but I am interested in doing it, for the sake of learning how to fly.
He and I will talk about how this will work, as he doesn’t want me to conflict with my new job.
This was a Real and Genuine offer. He really sees the aviation blood in me, as he can see that I want to learn, but that Flight Schools are just too expensive.
