The beginning

Hi everyone, probably not a lot of people reading a random blog att VR but anyway. This is the beginning of my pilot career hopefully. I will share what I can and when I can, hopefully often and a lot.

 

As of now I'm a student in Sweden and I'm finishing my BSc next June and hoping to get into Bristows combined JAA/FAA program that starts in September 2011. Until then I have a lot to study and even more to do to make it possible in terms of economy.

 

I've started mailing and contacting Bristow and some other people and companies in the buisness in a hope of getting some information and start to networking in a small scale. Since networking seems to be the way to make it or at least increase the chances of succeeding.

 

From that to something else. Right now I'm in Norway working but will travel to Lund on saturday so I can start studying for my exam at friday next week. I need to nail this one in order to keep my study results up. Right now I'm just thinking about flying helicopters and wanting to read and learn all there is to learn! I also have the big big issue at hand, money for education.

 

I've been working all summer long and some money will be saved towards the goal. I'm going on a interview on monday for a part-time job so I can work on the side to save up some money. But I know I won't get all the money needed, about 900.000SEK or something will be needed. Therefore I have to book a meeting with my bank and other aswell to see what it takes to get loan that size. If I won't be able to get one myself I will have to turn to my parents which I doubt will help me out but I deeply hope they see that I really want this and will fight for it.

 

It all comes down to the bank or my parents to step up and helping me. I will make it with those loans even if I have to work two jobs while waiting for the chance!

 

That's all for now. I will keep you updated asap when something new comes up.

 

 

Later

You may find it helpful to pick up a FAR/AIM and look to the AIM section to help you with some helpful material. Also if you are in an aviation unit ask one of the MTP if they know where to get a study guide. I took my AFAST in Afghanistan and with the help of a chief warrant getting me the study guide, I studied for two weeks and scored a 138. Unfortunately I had a bad back. But now I'm in flight training at a great civilian program and my Post 9/11 is covering the cost. If you have any other questions I would be glad to help if I can. gruberwaite@ymail.com
