First timer

Postby Woolwinder67 » Tue Jul 19, 2011 9:34 am

Hello everyone,
I'm John, a lifelong aviation enthusiast having been born and brought up just a few miles from both deHavilland's and Handley Page. Now, in my 67th year I am learning to fly and soon I will be taking the general flying test to get my licence.
I've dreamt of flying since I was a lad, it's been a long time coming but it's a great experience, so don't give up on your dreams.

Cheers
