Pursue the Dream - Aviation YouTube Video


Hello fellow members of the IFC! I just made a video of me in the left seat of a 1966 Cessna 172G. It was my first flight lesson after sim training. I did the preflight, startup, taxi, run up, takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, AND LANDING myself. Of course I had a CFI ( Certified Flight Instructor) right next to me. Can’t wait to hear from y’all!

Nice job! I remember my first flight at 12. I remember landing and thinking “oh my god what just happened”. Now I’m 14 and have 15 hours in a
DA-20. Doing power off 180’s and etc. Great job bud!

When did you start flight training? Or is that just some intro flight?

Congrats dude, and at 12?!? That’s crazy! I’m about halfway to my written. Landing at 12…

That’s awesome. I started when I was 14 and it is addictive. 200 hours later and I’m still always wanting to go fly 24/7.

Same here, I live over in Macau and we only have the international airport. I’m thirteen too. I feel so jealous when I see younger kids flying around and I’m still at home on my iPad 😂
