If you have a supportive family, the only advice
i can give is JUST DO IT.

I had zero interest in aviation until I had a trial glider flight in August. Iím now 30 winch launches in, plus 3 hours Microlight training towards NPPL.

I went gliding yesterday in a 20kt cross wind which was gusting up to 30kt at 1k feet and it was scary and exhilarating in equal measure.

I only managed one 30 minute flight, the remainder of the day was helping by retrieving and launching gliders and having a good old gas with some of the club members.

just get out there and if you love it, youíll find the time.
