Hey all! As a 23 year old.. someone that loves aviation in general. I have never had the moment to sit down and think about getting my licence.. After the past 5 years of working my butt off getting my career in line I recently went up with a buddy in North Dakota for a fly around (first time in 15 years) and was absolutely in awe.. So after research I decided I wanted to get my Private Pilots licence. Not for a career, as I love what I do. But for an escape every now and then. My question is, I should be starting around the first of next spring.. Until then, what would best prepare me to put me ahead of the game to soar right through my Written test, Oral test, checkride etc? I know that the theory and logistics of flying is probably the hardest part from what I have researched. Learning to operate and understand everything about a plane's instruments, knowing the laws, regulations, and world of airspace and FAA guidlines, etc. What's your thoughts?
