Student pilot Interview Jose from Colombia
Mathematics are a broad, exact and complex science. Do not be scared, the point in favour is that, although aviation is not a science that requires high levels of knowledge in mathematics if you need the basics and also at the time of choosing your academy will play a fundamental roll.
I chose to study aviation in the United States after investigating the subject for about a year, I visited airports in Colombia, schools, offices, I got on airplanes, and many times I wanted to fly in them, but even though I was in My land, “Where do I know all of them?”, I could not persuade any academy to take me on a flight as a passenger or on a reconnaissance flight at a reasonable price.
In the summer of 2018, my family scheduled a vacation to Miami and Orlando, for 15 days we enjoyed, we rested and then they returned to Colombia without me, how? That’s right, without me! When we arrived in Miami I decided to go to one of its 8 airports, I wanted to visit a school, see and experience what it would be like to study aviation here, I was not really prepared for what was coming, I was just going to find out, but as soon as I entered, I noticed the difference from one country to another, the attention, the facilities, the planes, the language (English of course), and I did not need to ask if I could fly on one of their planes that day, they They offered to take me as a passenger on a Diamond DA-40, a plane I had never heard before. With a certain fear, but with more emotion, a casual day turned out to be extraordinary with me in the air.
