We spoke to FTA Operations Supervisor Dan as he prepares to take his ATPL Theory exams, about his childhood ambition to become a pilot and what steps he has taken towards turning his dreams into a reality.
We recently caught up with former student and FTA instructor Steve Pearson about his transition from teaching to flying on the line for Scotland's leading regional airline, Loganair:
