Now that we have finished our time in ground school at Nurlsing, I’m now looking ahead to the flying in New Zealand.
In the ten days that I have off, I am trying to visit as many people as I possibly can – a challenge that is proving to be harder than first thought! There are just too many people to catch up with and not enough time in the day.
I also have to admit that it feels a bit odd sitting at home and not having to do any CBT or Question Bank. After constantly doing it for 5 months, it feels as though it has become part of my routine and now I don’t have to do it. I’m sure I’ll get used to it, but for the short term it feels wrong!
Before leaving Southampton though, I was helping out at the CTC Wings Open Day on Saturday and it was so good to see more people like myself, with a dream of training to become a pilot. I hope you all found it useful and enlightening, as well as enjoying, especially if you got into the simulators!
I did manage to get into a simulator again and got a couple of hours in as a psuedo training captain (basically making sure everything was running properly and we didn’t crash!) The potential pilots I ended up flying next to all seemed really determined and I’d say that you should keep that mentality up!
If you still have questions, both my contact details and details on how to get in touch with CTC can be found on the Contact page.
We are still waiting for confirmation of our flights to New Zealand, but I have now been assured that they are booked, so it looks like I am leaving the UK on the evening of the 20th March to head out to New Zealand. I can’t wait!
