Another PPL Wannabe

Posted by Peter Alberti on Jun 7, 2017 11:57 am

HI all,

Just wanted to say hi. I'm yet another newbie to aviation (got hooked last summer when I took my kids to Young Eagles).  While working on funding for a PPL I'm looking for any excuse to be at our local airport, including taking Scouts there and helping at local events.  I've attached our EAA chapter's recent newsletter that includes my first "Diary of a Pilot Wannabe" submission.

Looking forward to learning from the discussions here and - maybe, just maybe - adding value someday.
