    Why fly.

    Don't get me wrong, I want to fly but as a 13 year old is it worth it. What does it feel like to fly. (Don't spoil it), I need to know if my money will be well earned and spent. I would like a private and then IFR license. How often should I take lessons seeing as I can't solo till 16 or get my private until 17? How much time and money will I spend for the solo, private and IFR. Should I make this investment will it payoff if not in a pathway to a commercial license  in the experience of it? Is it worth the time and money?

    Re: Why fly.

    I encourage everyone to use air travel as an efficient and safe means of travel.  Many people have a fear of flying but most of their fears are based on irrational thoughts.  Just keep in mind if you ever are nervous on a plane that the entire design of an aircraft is to produce lift.  In other words the craft wants to go up, not fall down.  Only catastrophic situations and rare occurrences can force a plane into the ground.

    Hey Monks700 - it's been over 4 years ago since you posted this question... you are now well past 16 - did you do it? I hope you did, and if you are still around and get notifications about this response, I'd love to hear about your decisions as to why you did or did not pursue flight training.

    I and several compatriots posted about why *we* fly in our first "Blogging in Formation" posts as a group. My contribution is here: http://smartflighttraining.com/why-i-fly, and I recently posted some completely non-aviation reasons that a person might become a pilot.

    I hope you did choose to get your pilots license, and I hope the links I provided help you and others make that choice easier in the future...
