When you decide to take flying lessons, it will change your life forever. Why? Because flying lessons will expose you to experiences that are stimulating to the mind and “soul”. This helps to keep you motivated and succeed during the “hard” parts of flight training. When people accomplish things in life that are really meaningful (and maybe hard) like learning to fly – other parts of life get better!
Why? Because it increases self-esteem our energy and desire for life, with these three things we can do anything! Even deal with the ‘routine’ parts of life, which we all have.
The challenge that most of us have is finding something that motivates and inspires us enough to continue the “journey” to completion. Learning to fly or planning a career as a pilot is exciting enough and quick enough to do just that.
The other benefit of learning to fly is that a future pilot needs to stay in reasonably good heath to enjoy the benefits of being a pilot. Since the experience is so rewarding most pilots want to stay healthy. That alone is valuable to not only the pilot, but the friends, family and employer of the pilot. I found that even if a student pilot never obtains a pilot certificate it was still a valuable event in the life of the student pilot. Many people will learn to fly just for the experience of flying an airplane by themselves!
When you learn to fly, you will learn about aerodynamics, weather, navigation and many other things, plus as you fly you see sights that create lifetime memories.
Many people learn to fly for many reasons. Most of the time it is for fun since you can fly with friends or family to destinations that are not easily accessible to for a one-day type trip. Others will learn to fly for business since your time is valuable and it often takes less time that dealing with commercial airline travel. Yes, others learn to fly because they are looking for an exciting career. Whatever your reason for learning to fly is not as expensive as you might think especially compared to other types of activities.
And as I said at the beginning of this article, learning to fly will change your life. There are several ways you may learn more about learning to fly, first sign-up to watch our free online learn to fly presentation called Flight Training – Life Changing.
When you visit your local airport keep in mind that most flight schools are run by people that love flying and are in many cases small business people. This means they run their business with low staffing levels and low overhead. So do not expect really fancy locations and be prepared to look hard to get to the flight school because they are located in areas of airports that in most cases are not designed for visitors. But do not let that deter you from the learn to fly experience. It takes some effort to learn about flight training and how to succeed, however learning to fly is well worth your time, I promise.
And always remember that when you buy flight training and learn to fly that you play as much a role in your success as your flight school and instructor do. You are purchasing an education, not a product and must like in school your teacher succeeds when you put your effort into it. The very good think about learning to fly is that you will want to put your heart and energy into this. It is fun!
Learn to fly!
