Number 1: Top Tip on

Becoming a Good Pilot!

#1. Watch Your Character. 
I Mean it

So, here you are, equipped as if you are about to take a flight to Iraq, with a strong personal trait, extremely intelligent, with a hand of haters and one or two jealous instructors, with little or none peeps to count on (because stars are too bright for the ordinary). Believe it or not, this is more common than you can ever imagine!

Always be kind and respectful. Know WHEN to TALK, ALWAYS LISTEN and DON’T be afraid to say NO. Give space to your classmates to express themselves when they are asked. If you are the one who ALWAYS know the answers, then shut up! Keep listening.

Don’t be a fool! Help others, but realize not everyone is going to make it there! Stay away from the toxic and all that social disease. You may have to walk alone to get to where you want to be and it might mean upsetting few people!

You are a pilot by heart, 
blood and spirit. 
Take pride! 

#  2:  Go Hard! Grind it  till you own it.
#  3:  You are the smartest in the Room. Means you are in the wrong zone,
#  4:  Keep asking.
#  5:  Be a polyglot.
#  6:  Joining the Air Force is a Great Opportunity.
#  7:  Get Fit. Stay Fit. 
#  8:  Gear yourself as if you are going to Afghanistan.
#  9: Think Global.
# 10: Don't go for the Buck$!

  1. I have enjoyed reading every one of these tips. This one definitely deserves to be number one as Character is paramount.

    One of my personal definitions of character is how someone treats another person knowing that they have nothing to offer such as money, favors, etc.

    There are many other definitions of character and one of the key attributes as humans is the ability to spot both good and bad character. It definitely says a lot about a person.

    Have a great day!

    1. Thank you Jeremy! I could not agree more. Character is so very important and one of the most important traits. Thank you for your comment!!
