I started to fly 4 years ago and paid my own initial training cost up to now. Being a freelancer in the events industry and with the bad economic state of South Africa currently, I am struggling to meet my financial obligations and further my dream of becoming an airline pilot. I am truly passionate about aviation and have been from a very early age. If people can help me reach my goal, I would love to return and do my part to fund someone in their journey to further their education.
All persons donating to my cause will get weekly updates of my progress and news. I am serious to complete my training and will do whatever it takes. I am more than willing to talk to any potential contributors and give more info. Although I reside in South Africa, for PayPal ease, the currency has been set to USD.
The average price for an hour of flying is roughly R2000 (USD134). Hence the high amount that I need to raise.
Crowd funding is my last resort to raise the funds I need to reach my dream.
I leave you with this:
"Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward. For there you have been, and there you will always long to return" - Leonardo Da Vinci
