I’m a private pilot and flight instructor from Norway, I use this space to share things I wish someone had shared with me when I started on the journey to my PPL, and everything else (aviation related) I want to share.

How I got into aviation

As with so many others, aviation has fascinated me for as long as I can remember. And I’ve wanted to get the private pilot license for a long time. A lot of horrible things happened in 2020, but it was also the year I finally got to start working towards this dream! The local flying club, Haugaland Flyklubb, had just started offering flying lessons through a partnership with Sola Flyklubb. And since everything else was cancelled, I suddenly had money enough to just do it. So I did.

In March, 2021, I passed the skill test and got my PPL(A)! January, 2022 I passed the skill test in a TMG and got my SPL as well. April, 2023 I went to Hungary and completed the practical training and passed the Assessment of Competence for FI(A).
