Hello! My name is Blake Pope and I am 15 years young. Tomorrow at 9:00 am CST, I will officially be staring my path to becoming a private pilot. This will be my tracking thread where you will be able to read about my journey. Tomorrow I will post my first update. Stay tuned to hear my story!
Congrats! Can’t wait to see your journey to becoming a pilot. Have fun mate :)
Good luck with your PPL! Are you starting with ground school? I’m 15 and will be staring ground school in approximately 13 months.
Hey, i am am 13 and am also working on my private pilot liscence, too!
I’ll be doing an hour of ground school followed by an hour of flying.
Cool! Flying a small aircraft is amazing. Have you taken a discovery flight yet?
Yes, took a discovery flight with the flight training company a few weeks back and then finally decided to start my journey :)
What school are you at?
Monarch Air out of McKinney,TX
I remember my first flight too. However, I’ve decided to start a bit later so that i can actually pay for it, and so that I only have to spend 8 months between starting and finally getting my license.
Please tell me how you like them I’m currently at With a person out at ADS and liking him but looking for some other options.
I’m just looking at the people in the US saving up to get their licence whereas my friend in Canadian cadets can get his ppl as a scholarship for free through air cadets
Hey there, I also transition between the Monarch Air out of ADS as well. What company are you currently with?
I’ll be starting next year (When I’m 14)!
I wish you the best of luck! My discovery flight was last year. I’m on that same path. 👍🏻
I’m at American flyers at ADS.
I did a discovery flight there. To earn your PPL at Americans Flyers, it’s about $2,000 more expensive than it is to get it at Monarch Air.
Good luck on your piloting adventure!
I got my PPL a few months ago and I’m currently working on my Instrument Rating. The ultimate goal is to be flying jets for the airlines… something I should be doing within 3 years.
Excited to follow this adventure! Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help :)
That’s gonna take a while then. In most states you can’t get the license until you’re 17
Me too! But for me, i will be 14 next month
