I am Ariff, aged 23 and very much rely on myself for funding of my lifelong ambition which is to be a commercial pilot someday. However, knowing that learning flying isn't a cheap investment and with intentions of funding my own training, one underlying problem that I foresee experiencing is the health of my eye. I still fulfill the minimal eye requirements to be a pilot but in order for me to try and eliminate this worry is to perform an EpiLASIK corrective surgery on my eyes.
However, I require to do this the soonest possible as airlines and medical assessment usually take the pre eye assessment results which is critical in achieving my dreams. Knowing the the surgery isn't cheap, I have all hopes in trying to fund it myself but I do wish that the community will support me in this too so as to reduce the financial costing burden. Flying has always been my passion since young and I definitely don't want it to end right here.
All in all, the additional funding will be for one of my career goals someday.
