Why did you train to be a pilot?
After experiencing my first flight in a light aircraft in my late teens, I immediately developed the desire to become a pilot. Nearly twenty years later, after a career in an unrelated field, I decided it was time to follow my dream.
How did you go about choosing a flying school and what aspects were important to you?
I canvassed opinions of pilot friends and on general aviation flying forums. Then I visited the schools in person. I was looking for a school with a modern fleet of aircraft and an excellent reputation in the industry. Secondary considerations were a location that was commuting distance to home and an airfield with instrument approaches.
