How to fly a plane
Flying like a bird, that's what man dreamed of centuries ago. Today things have changed, that feeling of freedom can now be reached by enrolling in a flight school. The passion of flight, that's what drives the vast majority of airmen! Imagine being able to fly between clouds or even climb above them to say hello to the sun, on a gray day. To experience this and have the privilege of flying a plane, you can learn to fly through a flight training course.
For several years I dreamed of flying a plane and so a few weeks ago, I decided enroll in a private pilot licence course. I flew alone in the sky after fifteen hours of training, it was my first solo! The excitement was at its peak on this day which is so important for all pilots. Everything went as planned and I landed the aircraft without any problem. After shutting down the engine, a feeling of pride overcame me and my instructor. Following that day, which will be forever engraved in my memory, I decided to continue my training up to my commercial pilot license.
