New to forums & my first post.
I'm 46 now and all my life I've been looking to the sky.....its time to stop looking and get in it. As I have waited so long I would like to get my license in the shortest possible time.
The plan is to first save and take the medical, then I want to take time off work to take my lessons. Because of my age, I do understand it will take longer to get to grips with it, I think if I get to fly every day for a few weeks it would be more beneficial to me. I have over time gathered some info and I get from most people and forums that npplm is the way to go and Kiernan’s Aviation is highly recommended.
I live in Drogheda so it’s not too far at all to travel. I can plan my savings, I can plan my time off work, but I cannot plan for the Irish weather. So, I searched for flight schools abroad and I then came across new horizon microlight which is located in Spain.
Has anyone ever trained over there? If so could you tell me about your experience? This really appeals to me as in more ways than one, like a lot of people I have sacrificed a lot over the past few years and I think I deserve a few weeks away in the sun and no better way to spend it learning to fly.
But it would be nice to hear from someone who has already been there.
I do intend to take a trip over before committing to anything.
