Aviation Law

My job takes me from the U.K. to Europe everyweek. Most weeks I fly from Newacstle International Airport (EGNT) to either Amsterdam (EHAM) or Brussels (EBBR). I get at least 3 hours per week to catch up with my favourite podcasts, Uncontrolled Airspace & Airspeed.

My time waiting in airports or on a flight can now be used to brush up on my ground school. I always dreaded reading about Aviation Law. But I must admit, after picking up my Trevor Thom Aviation Law book 1, I was plesently surprised how interesting the subject is.

Tonight on my RJ85 flight into EBBR, I learnt about some new simple rule of thumb's - Red to Red is Safe & Red to Green is Unsafe.

Only 170 pages left to read.....................

The journey begins.................................

So here it begins. My journey.

I am starting my 2010 New Year's resolutions earlier than normal.

In 2010,
(1) I will complete my Private Pilot's License (PPL) and
(2) fly a particular aircraft that I only dream about today (details will be revealed in the coming months).

This blog details my journey from zero to PPL completion and the ultimate flight of my dreams
