Area: Piloting

"Since my first flying lesson at the age of 14 I knew I wanted to be a pilot. I began my training at Cumbernauld Airport however stopped when the school went bust and focused on my school exams. I continued training at Cumbernauld Airport for a second time, with a new school, and passed my first major milestone by going solo at 16.


I continued to focus on school and started university in 2013, however a career in engineering wasn't my dream. We eventually found Tayside Aviation and their Degree programme. I immediately left and began training in Dundee in the beginning of 2015 and haven't looked back since. I have now gained my PPL and am truly on the way to fulfilling my dream"
