Learn to relax, chill out and unwind

There’s no denying it. Ground School is a tough slog. Its long hours in the classroom, there’s the studying at night and the weekend and the never-ending flow of information to learn. If I’m being brutally honest, while some subjects are extremely interesting, some are extremely dry, which all together can make it arduous at times. That being said, there is always time to enjoy yourself during Ground School. It’s extremely important to give yourself time off and let the brain relax, unwind and recover. If you don’t the risk of burning out will be high. This was something I was told from day one with L3Harris.

The Best Job in the World

Like anybody in my position, aviation has been something that has fascinated me from a very young age. After finishing high school, I ultimately knew where I wanted to end up but I wasn’t too sure on how I was going to get there. I had a tough time trying to decide between going to university first and getting a degree before coming back to flying later down the track - or just getting stuck in to flying from day dot. At that stage, I had my first full-time job working as a drain cleaner (a job that I am still very grateful of to this day) and I would save up enough money to go and get lessons at the local aeroclub any weekend I could afford it – I was completely hooked and knew that I just wanted to go flying.
