Re: College of Pilots?

Education is obviously a desirable goal for everyone, however there are many ways to educate ones self. I fail to see why learning to fly using the " old flight school route " is not a very viable route to take, I went that route with very little formal education and did O.K. as a pilot. Conversely...

Of course, I said yes to both. They then proceeded to ask me what my ID was! I said to them "thats the bea...

Re: Im really confused

Become a doctor (CAME) and then you can charge over $100 for a so called "medical" With that kind of money, you can then buy your own airplane and fly for fun. Oh yeah, I also forgot, you get to live a good life too.

Think of C3. Glasgow airport seized a 330 and within a few hours, every other aircraft was seized. Okay so ...
