From Poland but ended up in Edmonton, Alberta where I began graduate school, ground school and my private pilot’s license training at Edmonton city centre, Blatchford field, CYXD. I moved to the rocky mountains, I transferred flight schools to very busy, and windy Springbank airport – CYBW near Calgary. This move was overwhelming, at best.
This is a blog about my experience learning to fly, but also about general aviation topics, news and gear reviews.
I’ve discovered that flying takes a lot of studying, work and dedication, but is very rewarding! I started flying just out of graduate school, so I have struggled with paying for my lessons, and as a result, I have to take many breaks, which means that getting licensed has taken many more hours than normal.
I plan to get an instrument and night rating, take the mountain flying course, and eventually complete a commercial license. If you are learning to fly, interested in learning to fly or just interested in aviation, please join us.
I’m an economist, enjoy climbing, mountaineering and backcountry skiing and try to get out to learn to fly whenever the crosswinds are not too great!
