My name is Terry.  I am a retired Canadian Air Force I.T. guy and college professor with a passion for all things aviation.  I am in my 50’s.

I decided to put together this website to document my process of getting a Pilot License in Canada.  More specifically what it is like to go through the process at an older age.

My goal is to make this site educational in nature.  I hope to provide you with insight into what I went through during the process.  I won’t hold any punches.  I will document my troubles and mistakes, all the ups and downs, the requirements of becoming a Pilot in Canada, things that I think are wrong with the general aviation training systems today, and more.  I also hope to provide you with as many tips and tricks as I have learned throughout the process.

Please understand though.  These will be my opinions about my experiences.  You don’t have to agree with anything that I say. 🙂 I won’t be offended if you don’t.  In fact, maybe this will encourage some good educational debate.

I am not an expert.  This content is purely made for entertainment purposes only.  If you are in the same boat as me, your experiences may defer.  I hope to be able to get great feedback from all other Pilots.

One last thing.  While this will be from a Canadian pilot perspective, I feel that most if not all of what I am going to talk about should be transferable to other countries.

Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
