Hi, good morning! My name is Niharika and
I’m from India, the capital New Delhi. I’m doing my instrument training, so I’m on my IFR instrument training process. I love being in the sky, I love being
around the plane, it’s something which always makes me happy. The United States of America has the best training courses available and they have a really good exposure to environment and flying. You get real
traffic, you get real communications and it’s pretty much more of experience in
the United States. However, in my country it’s a bit limited. And it’s a beautiful place to fly. So you’re flying, you’re looking at the view, it’s excellent.
I always had a dream to fly and being a crew before in airlines I always wanted
to be in the cockpit. So I used to go to the captains and ask them “hey, how do you talk to the ATC”, for example. They motivated me. A lot of captains told me “you know we can go to certain places, you can go expand your career”.
So I said OK, let me do this. And I always have a dream of taking my parents in a flight, you
know, commercial aircraft, so I’ve come all the way from India to get that
knowledge and the feeling of flying in a cockpit. I want to fly for my country and
I only wanna be in a really good airline, work for them. It’s something that I really
wish and, of course, the money comes along with it. So it’s gonna be the money and the fun of flying. So I’ll be getting paid for
what I love to do. I love looking at the airport from the top of the view.
It’s excellent and plus they have all these palm trees, they have so many lakes
around, it’s beautiful when you look at those lakes. You see all the boats parked
and it’s beautiful. I remember my first solo flight. I did my solo flight in homestead and it was excellent. I was like “Oh my God! OK, this whole space is for just for myself!” I felt like there was so much ??? for myself and I really
loved it. I felt like going, you know, touch
down, go, take off, touch down, go, touch and goes and
it was excellent I wanted to continue but my instructor was like
“Stop! Come back!” The thing that I really love about Flying Academy is, they have maintained their aircrafts pretty well I love the equipment, I love, how they
keep updating it I love the inspections. Every 50 hours it’s always correct on
time. Because I am a pilot, I need to make sure that the planes are, you know, in a
good condition. So I love, how they keep a track on it, and the equipment are
excellent, so it’s a good good place to fly. Plus they have a new building, so
looks pretty good. The group of captains they’re excellent, so you can approach them anytime if you have anything to ask. It’s a very friendly environment.
I’ve got a lot of friends here. First of all, if you have that passion, that love for the aircraft, you need to get into the cockpit and get that passion alive. So
just dreaming about it won’t really much make a difference but if you work
towards it, if you go and achieve it, It’s going to be something that you’ll always
love and you’re never going to regret it. Come out of your comfort zone and come, experience it, fly, work hard, build your hours and be a commercial pilot.
