Today is a bit of a landmark not only for me but this blog as well! 100 posts ago I began a journey to provide a little insight to how the world of aviation was, how its operated, and the passion that drives a student pilot to become more than just a pilot. In the blogging world 100 posts is like a flea to an elephant but I’ve tried my best in transcribing my experiences of flight into a well typed blog entry. For the select few that have followed me from day one to now, know the different looks this site has gone through and the different types of media avenues I have tried to use to share my flying experiences. From pod-casting to vBlogging to now blogging, I have given almost everything a fair try but have found this to be the most practical one to fit my life style right now.
Starting off I didn’t take blogging to seriously and I was just a casual twice a month type of blogger, then I quickly began to realize that blogging was an outlet to my stressful flight training at points and to everyday life as well (its like my cigarette but without the harmful nicotine and ucky smoke).
To really sum up why I even started this blog in the first place was because of this. As an aspiring pilot and computer addict, as a young kid I always looked for first hand experiences from pilots in flight training and learning to fly on the internet. And to my surprise there were very few good blogs about pilots in these stages of training (in 2009). So I made it a point to try and share all things about my flying to anyone that wanted to know via the web. With only 2 years of this site being alive I can already see the multitude of flight training blogs out there, this just shows how the internet and blogging has really catapulted in the last few years!
I know this isn’t the most popular site in the world but I hope I have been able to enlighten at least one person to begin flight training and realize what a blessing it is to be a pilot day in and day out!
To many, 100 posts would be but a number, but to me its 100 new opportunities for someone to become inspired to start, finish, or ponder the thought of flight training.
From Cessna to CRJ the journey starts, and never ends, now!
Until Next Time,
