A Personal Journey

A Personal Journey

By Didier on 22nd March 2018 in Flying Club

After being raised by a handyman father who became an amateur plane builder and private pilot, the passion wins me over, and the desire to discover the pleasures of flying is on the horizon.

Despite this passion, time is lacking! It is only in October 2006 when I move under the downwind leg of the aerodrome Romans LFHE that the adventure really begins. After many afternoons spent in the parking of the flying club watching everybody being very busy around the planes; that I finally take the plunge.

Registration, contact with the instructor, first solo flight around the airfield, first navigation to Aubenas and a year later, the Grail: my Private Pilot License.

And then everything is moving so fast. I am eventually asked to become an instructor. I completed the Professional Pilot License and finished with the mountain qualification. Without doubt the most insanely beautiful moment of my flying experience.

And so much more to come
