I learned to fly 19 years ago, at a certain Brit-run establishment just north of Daytona, Fl., while on an extended vacation. Although I always wanted to fly (as long as I can remember) I became rather disillusioned so that after converting to a PA23 from a C152 I didn't bother taking up flying after returning to the UK. I currently work on the edge of the circuit of a well known aerodrome near London and feel the need to get airborne again. As quite a lot has changed over the years I find myself trawling the 'net to seek information as any new student would do, and have found your blog highly illuminating (and perhaps a little scary). Thank you for putting it together - maybe and old dog can learn some new tricks.

I would like to be a pilot, and i'm really beginner. How could i start the whole thing?
Thanks for your help.

http://www.airquiz.com/ was very good when I learned - I assume it still is up to date.

Best thing to do is get yourself to your nearest flying club (or visit a few if there's a choice) and get a trial flight - but make sure they know you're interested in learning not just a jolly.

Hi Leiafee,

thanks for the quick reply, I checked this site and seems useful :)

I've just logged in again and realized that I forgot to reply, sorry. I had to postpone my studies in August due to other reasons and now I am back to make the first steps to be a pilot.

How to learn to fly? ...this is my question also... but the wonderful thing is, seeing/feeling on yourself that you are better day by day
on the first day all the instruments.... was a nightmare, tried to watch them all even when instructor said its not necessary right now...do it step by step....

Muscle memory is also a wonderful thing.. when you are stressed, excited, oh my God, I need to do a perfect turn or whatever,.... but after may practice you do it like "automatically" with the right angle.....
