Dream Of Flight

Hello Everyone.

A brief introduction about Dream Of Flight. We are a group of pilots flying all kind of aircrafts from small to big who enjoy promoting aviation to the general public through joy flights, chat sessions, charity events etc.

As for myself, I am a Singaporean and have great interest in flying since I was about 20 years old. Took up my first flying lesson in Australia and never regretted it since then. I continue to pursue my passion for flying as an instructor in Johor for about 3 years and till now I am quite fortunate to say I have achieved my dream of flying for an airline.

So we hereby invite anyone interested to take up the above challenges to email us at: admin@dreamofflight.org to register your interest and we will add you to the mailing list for any future events.

(Do apologize if the waiting time might be long for the joy flight, as we do not conduct this too regularly and also due to the demand and capacity of the plane. Thank you for your understanding)

Details Required in the email:

Ask A Pilot

Dream of Flight: "Ask A Pilot “ program. Where we will be giving consultation session with our pilot team in a very small group. During this session, you can ask our pilot any aviation related questions, finding out more about the life of a pilot or seeking the career path towards achieving your goal etc.

The main objective of setting up this initiative is so that we could provide a more professional environment and regular sessions as we see the demand increasing over the years.

Journey to Becoming a Pilot - Part 12

The next one week was theory component of the aircraft. Everyday at 9am, we will go to a room where we will use our laptop to study the aircraft systems through an interactive software. The good thing is you can study at your own pace but it really require concentration and discipline. There is a tutor on duty and we can ask him questions if we had any doubt.

At 5pm, we will knock off and go back to the hotel. Basically back at the hotel, I will still be reading through the systems as the time was actually quite short and we will be scheduled for an exam at the end of the week.

For me, learning the systems of an entirely new aircraft was not easy. I have no previous experience in jet aircraft with all the complicated electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic systems. I only flew a 4 seater piston engine aircraft and now i am learning to fly a 180 seater commercial jet.

Although tough, this small thought that i could one day pilot my passengers to their destination safely continue to spur me till this day.

The date has come for our exam. The exam was conducted on school laptop and the layout similar to the interactive software that we had studied for the past 5 days. We could skip a question and go back to them later if we were stuck. The scary part is after completion of the exam, a click of a button will give us our result instantly. Fortunately, me and my partner passed!

Next week we will start our aircraft performance theory as well as introduction to the non motion touch screen flight deck where we will learn the procedures of the aircraft.

For now, time for a celebration at our new favorite restaurant which is run by an elder couple who serve really authentic vietnamese dishes. One more thing to look forward to is we will have a free tour organized by the school during the weekend and we will be visiting an old castle…cant wait….(To be continued)
