It's done. I am scheduled for 10 days of training at Aviator PPG in lake wales FL. I start July 6th. They said the average wait time is 18 months. Because they are basically the cream of the crop school in the world at this time, located in FL, and Tucker Gott, who is the most viewed PPG youtuber, whom was trained there and supports them, they stay very busy. I was able to grab a spot from someone who had to cancel for whatever reason. The training is $3,500 and by the end we should be comfortable on our own in the air and have met some like minded people to possibly fly with in the future. I am the guy that has no fear of pretty much anything, as I will research things to the point of no return and my confidence level is bar none. I am stoked to have a date set, instead of just wishing that this would one day be a reality. I will keep ya's posted. In the meantime I have a reason to cut some weight and get into shape for this adventure. Hopefully this sport will help me make other important changes in my life as I have become bored with most everything.
Here is a link to Tuckers channel. Even if you want nothing to do with this sport I believe this channel is gold. Check it out. Let me know if you have any questions about the sport as I would be more than happy to help guide you in the right direction.
