My name is Martina and I am on my way to become a glider pilot as my first stage in the aviation, and later on obtain the PPL licence.
I started my glider pilot training in September 2017 and today I have 15 hours in total, including 2 hours solo flying. I have always funded my education through scholarships during secondary and university education, but unfortunately no scholarships are given in my country for the flying programs, and it has become more and more difficult to fund the flying. Serbia is a country where an average income is around 400 euros per month. If I was to fly according to the curriculum, I would need more than 700 euros per month. If you are a pilot, you probably have been in this situation too and can understand the struggle. Every penny will be of a help, so please help out with how much you can. :)
