I'm Simone, i'm 26 and i live in Italy, right under the alps!
I love flying, writing novels, astronomy, drawing portraits and martial arts! I'd love if you want to get in touch with me about! ;)
Becoming a pilot is the direction of my life, since always, and i don't stop working for it!
Finally, in 2012 i was confirmed physically and pshycologically able to fly Navy helicopters and jet planes (as in the picture, from the Italian Navy Medical Commission), A rare set of conditions with which i could conclude the selections on a 4th place - out of only two available!
I found myself so close to the dream - yet stranded again one step before, too old to apply again.
WHAT HAPPENED AFTER?
Sitting on the side of pilots, i experienced the controls of helicopters myself, piloted wind-gliders and full-size army simulators of Jet-Fighters: pilots always said that natural attitude, tested already by the military, needs to be pursued.
My highest purpose: working as an Emergency Air Rescue Pilot in the Alps.
It makes me sad that while they encourage me to develop this natural sensibility, i'm always grounded and risking to loose just too much time.
- WHAT AM I ASKING MONEY FOR?
What will keep me on the ground for many years is the money. Money keeps my wings closed.
I am commiting full-time to collect what i need to undertake my Commercial Private License for Helicopters (CPL-H) in the U.S.A., at the school i precisely selected. I've always dreamed to train in the U.S! This is the link to the program: Professional Pilot Program (Complete).
I do not pretend that people pays off my entire goal - but you can dramatically Make It Possible With Me, WHILE I KEEP WORKING for it!
>>>>>>>> I didn't set the all amount necessary, because i want to do my part. I don't want that you do it ALL for me!<<<<<<<<
I like to apply myself beyond the main job: i wrote and published my thriller Book, i make short astronomy Videos for the local schools; give private lessons in languages, and make all the possible secondary jobs to get to my goal.
But i really need your help, because it will take TOO LONG :/
- WHY IS IT SO URGENT NOW?
I am used to never ask for help. But as years pass, the goal is still too far away and i risk to get old for this job market. Despite the jobs i've been working on and the current one, it takes too much time to get the necessary money. My family has been living truly difficult situations in the last years having to deal with depression close to us - they really deserve a call where i can shout, "I have my license!"
I have already collected a little part of the money, but i still need to fill the remaining costs: the complete license (CPL-H + IFR) and the accomodation costs: 50.000 dollars in total.
Every Donation Helps! :D
EVERY ONE is DETERMINING ;=)
- WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME?
I am asking for your help to FUND MY PILOT STUDYING.
You can make the SUBSTANTIAL difference in my life andin the one of those who love me - even with just A DOLLAR. It means THE WORLD to me: it's what i decided to dedicate my life to, what i'm naturally skilled for, the way i dream to help people professionally.
What really gives a sense to life for me...
"Help coming from the sky... the sound of the engines... the technical ability required... to manage the complexity of this flying machines... the mess they produce cutting the mass of air... it never stops to amaze me"
Help me to become a professionist! ;)
- HOW CAN I THANK YOU? :)
I must be realistic with the rewards, but i want to give heartfelt ones! To combine my passions with gratitude! :D
1. I start with a HUGE virtual thank and a personalized frame sent by mail that certificates your support in such a valuable commitment of generosity.
2. At any level of donations, you get to be directly thanked in my second book i am going to write, which is about this whole story. You will be directly named in it and possibly make an example of generosity for so many. You're part of a real human story of generosity and realization!
3. The highest donator names get his/her name on a beautiful plate/s (hope we're too many!) that i will hold for pictures at the public certification of my pilot license: let everybody know how YOU could gave wings by generosity!
4. Plus, highest donators get all the previous rewards together! ;)
I am sure with your help i can finally OPEN MY WINGS: even with just a dollar!
