Federation Aviation Administration - Sample Essay

I want to learn how to fly because I enjoy challenges and flying seems like a very exciting and rewarding escapade. Flying will also give me a sense of responsibility by learning precise and accurate lessons on how to fly safely and not put anyone at risk (FAA, 1999). For now I would just want to learn how to fly for the simple reason of just enjoying spending time in the air and seeing the sights around me. Maybe in the future, I might consider being a professional pilot, but this all depends on what happens in the next 4 or 5 years.

Flying will also give me self-confidence that I can train well in order to become a licensed pilot. I also want to learn a discipline that involves the utmost accuracy in terms of spatial correlations and aerodynamics. Controlling an airplane also means being in control of a machine and this idea gives me a sense of fulfillment that I can do something important on my own. Once I know how to fly a plane and have acquired my pilot’s license, I plan to regularly fly a plane for recreation. I will start out by flying locally until I accumulate enough flight hours and maybe later I will consider flying to farther places.

Flying has been my dream since I was a child, and now that I am at the right age, I am very excited about learning how to fly. I think learning how to fly a plane will serve as a good experience and exposure for me. Training in a flight school will also develop me into a smart pilot. Flying a plane will be an additional capability for me, but more importantly, this training will make me understand myself better, by knowing how I can follow a certain discipline in order to be a high quality pilot with precise and accurate knowledge of handling a plane.

I look forward to a fruitful time at the flight school.
