My name, in case you hadn’t already seen it, is Toby Kerr. I am an ex A-Level student who has just completed Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics courses. Now that these have been completed (finally!), I am now looking forward to starting the latest chapter of my life: airline pilot training. Which brings me to introducing you to the bigger reason as to why I have decided to start this blog.
Ever since, I first stepped on an aircraft, caught a glimpse of the flight deck, and experienced flight for the very first time, I have been somewhat infatuated with the whole experience that the aviation world has to offer. As time went on from that first experience, six year-old me soon realised that my vocation was to become an airline pilot. Since then, I have fuelled my ambition by spending many hours on flight simulators and spending even more hours watching endless videos on YouTube!
As time has crawled forward at a snail’s pace, I am now ready to begin what could be the most exciting time of my life! I will elaborate in another post another time, but the purpose of this blog is to hopefully inspire young aspiring airline pilots to follow their dreams whilst hopefully providing information that will be useful to anyone considering a career in this industry.
This is all for now but I will end by writing one of my favourite quotes:
For once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been, and there you long to return.
– Leonard da Vinci (1452 – 1519)
