Pre-Flight School Update from Maitland

Hello friends !!!

Two weeks ago I was living off of starbucks flat whites and chickfila chicken nuggets, trying to survive finals week 2015. Clocking over 12 hours a day in the Tommy G. library and sleeping less than four hours a night, I wasn't entirely sure I was going to make it out alive. Alas my determination to fly prevailed, and with the help of too much espresso I passed all of my classes with flying colors. Now with two college semesters under my belt and out of my way I am ready to take on J-Swig's Flight School. After a short weekend in Savannah, Georgia with my dear friend Émeline I'm well rested and back in the books. Lucky for me I got to trade in my algebra and ethical issues books for a Cessna 152 manual and student private pilot book (not like I haven't been studying all semester, I promise Jamie !)

I'm currently back home on Orlando where my folks live, catching up with old friends and catching up on throttle, yaw, pitch and any and all FAA regulations. We're down two days until Jamie and Sweetpea are down here to pick me up and take me back to Meridian for the coolest overnight camp ever!!!!  In the meantime you can find me clocking my time in local coffee shops with good company and lots of flash cards. I have no clue what I'm getting myself into but I've got a good feeling about it. All I know is that being in the sky is one of the coolest thing experienceable on this earth. Not to mention Jamie is going to be the funniest and most devoted teacher I've ever had (seeing how he has already put up with all my stupid questions thus far). Who knows, maybe he'll even let me buzz the tower?? If all goes well and I don't kill us both feel free to check back here in a few days for updates!!

Stay tuned 


  1. Rest in peace pilot. My condolences go out to all of your loved ones.
