Now that is a goal everyone should have.

But, I’d really just like to pursue my private pilots license/commercial pilot’s license, basically my main goal :)


Probably my top spot would be to buy a plane or build one myself!

Hahaha I think so too! Good luck getting your pilots license :)

Nothing like the feeling of owning something, especially a plane! And the satisfaction of building your own must be crazy!

Thank you! :)

The only thing I could fly here in Australia with an afterburner is an F18. Pathetic, I know. Good luck and happy flying!

Hahaha it’s not too bad, at least it gives us something to do. But I agree lockdown is pretty boring :/

Good old 737, that plane is one of my favourites too
