Great story and sounds similar to my Granddad, although he wasn't able to continue after his early moth flights due to family and work commitments.

Anyone who can do 650 private hours shows a real passion for the cause.

To put it into context, it took nearly five years going at it as hard as a I could afford (i was single and had two jobs at the time) to get my first 200 hours and a CPL. After just over a year working as a pilot I had a 1000TT, but most of them were no-where near as fun as the first 200.

Ive got mates who can afford to fly privately, and in some ways i envy them..

until they tell me how much it cost to do a 100 hourly..
