Learning to Fly

(I originally wrote this post in February 2012, but it has been kept under wraps until I was able to tell my current employers)

Relatively recently, I got accepted on to BA's Future Pilot Programme.  I think I'd like to write about my experiences - it'll be good for me, and someone might be curious in the future!

I love flying, and I've wanted to be a pilot for a long time.  There haven't been many airline jobs going recently, so I've been biding my time.  This really has been the first opportunity to work for a major airline I've seen for a long time, so I had to take it!

In this post, I'm going to briefly describe the course I've joined, the application process and my thoughts and feelings.

Bronze Confuser

For ages it was available online, but when I moved website I failed to put it back up.  I've finally gotten around to doing it, so if you think it'd be useful feel free to give it a try!
