From Student to Pilot…

Written by Jonathan Lodge : 19th July 2011

Since I was a young boy I’ve been fascinated by aviation,my sister started training with Kuki 6 months before me and I decided to give it a go myself. Following a trial lesson with Simon I was hooked and began my training with Chris. Through his expert guidance and infinite patience I learnt how to hover,take off and land,fly and most importantly the safety procedures.

Learning to fly Helicopters is challenging and the positive encouragement from all the team at Kuki really helped me in gaining my PPL and it was a lot of fun along the way too!!

At present I’d like to build my hours in the R22,taking friends up and flying to new places,in the future I’d like to get the R44 rating and maybe even complete my CPL one day.
