Since I have owned this series of flight simulator's, my passion for flying has grown steadily. I recently decided to learn to fly for real and began to research the best way to accomplish that.

Anyway last week I had a interview at a "regional" flight school to learn how to be a professional comercial pilot. Just a few hours ago I recieved a phone call saying I had been accepted into their First Officer training program. I also will be earning an associates in Aviation Technology.

I just wanted to say thanks for everyone for helping to inspire a dream of mine.

Congrats a ton!!
i would like to know more though, i too was looking down that path about a year ago, and did a little reasearch myself, but i found it cost prohibitive..
i'd love to know more about your experience, specifically with costs, this flight school, and the first officer training course.

any info you could give me would be a blessing and help a fellow future pilot.

All pilots do stuff like that! Maybe not out load, but in the back of every pilots mind, he's lining up on a target!

Congrats and good luck in becoming a pilot.

So you don't even have a PPL and you're in a FO program already? Jeeeeeze.... Early bloomers, these days.

Boosher, remember to drain fuel back from the left tank to the right.
