The insight into Commercial Pilot Training
Trainee Commercial Pilot ATPL (A) (CPL,ME,IR)
24 year old Ex Aer Lingus Cadet from Kensal Rise in North West London currently undertaking Commercial Pilot Training at Flight Training Europe in Jerez, Spain.
#Rash2FlightSchool started in September 2020 when I decided to launch a crowdfund campaign in an attempt to raise £60,000 to return to complete my Commercial Pilot Training when my funding with a leading European airline was suddenly cut due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
After a successful launch of #Rash2FlightSchool on social media on the 19th of September 2020 with the help of friends, family and the public I was able to raise £60,000 in four weeks. #Rash2FlightSchool gained notable attraction across the United Kingdom and my campaign was featured on various media outlets including the BBC, The Metro, The Voice, Kilburn & Brent Times, Channel 5 News, Channel 4's Steph's Packed Lunch and more notable BBC's Panorama investigating the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on young people.
After an eventful end to a turbulent year, I have been given the opportunity to fulfil my dreams through the generosity of many people.Therefore, it is my duty to give back wherever I possibly can. The purpose of #Rash2FlightSchool is to keep my donors updated with the progress of my training while providing insight into the training world of a trainee commercial pilot and providing aspiring Pilots with guidance on their journey to the flight deck but more importantly to inspire people to weather the storm and achieve their dreams.
I look forward to working with schools, colleges and youth organisations in the future to empower more young people.
