Congratulations to Year 13 student Abi, who has passed her helicopter pilot’s exam and now has her PPL (Private Pilot’s Licence).
Abi started flying when she was 16 years old and the process to achieve her PPL has taken 18 months from start to finish. This has included nine ground exams, a radio exam and a flight test, along with 10 hours solo with a solo cross country flight to two different airfields. She completed all of this while studying for her A levels!
Abi plans to use her licence to begin her path of study for a Commercial Pilot’s Licence which she hopes to do as a career in the future, with the ambition to become an air ambulance pilot.
