On the 19/06 this year I received an email from a potential student stating he was 15kg over the seat limit for the aircraft 😖
He wanted to start the ground schooling and gave assurances that he would be able to shift the weight and wanted to book a trial flight. To press the point he arrived at the airfield on his bike and loaded up with training material. True to his word he lost the weight and his trial flight took place on 13/09 after loosing a total of 6.5 stone in the preceding 12 months.
Today he went solo after just 9:35 of flight time. Every lesson so far has had its challenges and yet Jim’s level of determination and commitment has been nothing short of heroic.
