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.
