Want to be a pilot?

Today I have been helping some close friends of mine at Oxford airport helping show off gliding to aspiring pilots! If you live in the UK and you are 16-21 then apply for the scheme and you fly at Bicester gliding for a while. This majorly makes the costs of doing your PPL(Private Pilots Licence) and your civilian licence! Some say glider pilots make the best pilots.
Even if your not in UK that age, you can fly gliders anywhere and it majorly reduces the costs of doing future flying licences! Find your local gliding club and try it out!
If you are near Oxford tell me and I can get some cheaper flying for you at Bicester!
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.
