• The First 1500

    1,950 views 2 years ago
    This is my personal pilot journey from student pilot to the coveted 1500 hours that every professional pilot aspires to. It took me 10 years to accumulate the required hours to be eligible for the Airline Transport Pilot certificate. Just like living life it was not the quantity of the hours logged but the QUALITY of those hours. I set out at the beginning to make every hour count, today I feel I accomplished that goal and beyond. I hope this motivates those pilots who are still on their journey to 1500 or maybe just getting ready to start that journey. Enjoy the video set to a very appropriate song by One Republic.
