I just joined the forum. My 16 yo daughter wants to be a pilot. We have been going to air shows the last few years and she loves planes. I used to work for DOD on the P8 program and lived on base for a year and a half so the kids saw lots of planes there. We joined the EAA and have been helping (what we can do) a local chapter build a plane. She went up with the young eagles in the summer and they gave her an account for the Sportys ground school videos which she has watched all now a couple of times (my wife, son and I have also). She started flight lessons a couple of weeks ago and my son and my 12 yo son and I went up with her on her first lesson. She’s going to a ground school next year that’s mostly kids the flight school owner is teaching. In the late 50s, before I was born my dad got his license and flew about 90 hours, I have his log book. But he stopped after I was born. Many years ago my uncle had his license and would take me up when we would visit. I’ve been interested in planes but never though much about getting my license (time and $$). Long term if my daughter gets her license and stays interested I guess we could join a club so she can keep up flying. I mentioned to my wife it would be nice to at least to learn how to land a plane if my daughter gets her license and we all start going up with her. My wife said that I should start taking lessons or at least a discovery flight to see if I like it and learn while my daughter is learning. Is it hard for someone in their late 50s to get a license? I don’t have any health issues. There’s lots to learn. Also, long term I was wondering about building a kit plane, I built most of our house and work on my cars. I’ll be able to retire in a few years so I would have more time then. I have lots of questions but hate to take the time of her instructor. Is it OK to ask dumb questions here. We are trying to figure out what headsets to get her, seems like everyone has David Clark headsets, are the $300 ones OK?
