My name is Ben Vaughan. I am thirteen, and as you guessed.. I am trying to fund for my PPL (Private Pilots Licence).
Aviation has always been my interest. It's helped me get through life when it's been really tough. Ever since my toddler years when my dad introduced me to Flight Simulator. Even if I don't manage to achieve my dreams soon. Maybe, just maybe sometime in the future, my dream to become a pilot will come true.
I have so far raised £200 of my own money, by saving pocket money, and doing choirs for neighbours. The whole Private Pilots Licence doesn't come cheap! £6,250 to be exact! But in my mind. If I keep at it, one day, I will reach my long awaited dreams.
If you want to find out about a Private pilots Licence. Visit the Civil Aviation Authority's website on google. Or just type PPL Uk into google.
I can't legally get my licence until i'm seventeen, but i can start in one year, once i'm fourteen. What ever donation you may donate will be appreciated, and no matter how much it is, I will still count it as being closer to reaching my end goal.
I really appreciate you reading this even if you don't contribute. I am just happy that I am sharing my long hoped dreams with other people.
Thanks very much :)
