Hello all! Another new guy just starting the whole PPL process. Tons of info to go through. Been cruising around this site for a while, recently registered, and now making an intro post. I have been around aviation my whole life. My old man had his ppl and was also the pilot for a parachute club. My step dad has his ppl and has spent his life in the air. He is one of the main reasons i have descided to dive in! I have been in and around quite a few different aircraft. I can do straight and level flight and turns but never performed a take offor landing. I was avionics tech in the navy. Currently fly my drone as a hobby. Just completed aviation 101 course online for Embry-Riddle. My plan is to setup and get my student certificate and schedule my discovery flight. Hopefully at the same time schedule a medical consult (on site AME) to make sure all is good to go. (Good health and no past issues) but as im 45.... better safe than sorry! Once that is good to go i will complete the Sportys ground school and schedule my written. Then start all the flight training. After completion i hope to get my complex and hp signoff- then complete ifr. With the hope to evenyually purchase a grumman aa5 or bonanza. So far i have enjoyed this site, learned a lot, and look forward to meeting and chatting with everyone! One day i hope to go to Oshkosh or Fun N Sun.
