"Chase your Dreams and set goals that will one day inspire others!"


From a very young age I have been exposed to aviation through my father. He exposed it to me through the model aircraft and taking me to air shows as much he could.

It has been my Dream for as long as I can Remember to become a pilot! Although in my younger years I was not able to fly full size aircraft I spent most weekends with my father at the Model club and building model aircraft which further enhanced my passion.


Spending almost every weekend with my father flying model aircraft. He too obtained this PPL at the age of 50 years old showing you are never too old to achieve your dreams.


A fond memory was definitely the first flight with my dad in our newly bought Cessna 182, ZS-MAW.
