Hello, this is my first post on ferrari forums actually. Just to give a brief history....A friend of a friend, Jon Walton (turbos7903), and i randomly met and went on a 2 hour long drive. After, he invited me to our local Cars and Coffee with his friends. From this, i became a member of ferrari chats to check up on c and c meetings. I am currently 18 years old and drive a 2004 e46 M3. I saved my money for for several years to get the M3, and now work at our local BMW dealership, and am finishing my senior year Now, aviation.... This current semester i am not doing any team sports. Long story short, a dream of mine was brought back in front of me and i am now looking into getting my private pilots license during my season off/into summer. I was wondering what knowledge people would like to share on their journey to receiving their licenses. I am looking to get my license to be able to rent a plane on weekends and honestly, just fly for the fun (just like how we'll "just drive"), and or every now and then take a friend out. I have been researching online a lot (aopa.org) and so far have found: most people under estimate the commitment it takes, it does cost a good amount, and all in all people normally always come out happy! I am looking into classes or hiring a private instructor at our local airport (not major airport, PHL), and going from there. I would love to have any comments or suggestions people can think of! Thanks! Dave.
