Hi there and welcome! My name is Kirsten. I’m 52 years young and I’m a wife, mother, grandma and small business owner. I’m also a student pilot. This blog is for my own learning and reflection on this unexpected journey to my private pilot’s licence. It’s also a way to share this amazing adventure and to encourage others, especially women, to experience the joy of flying.
Along the way I’ll post interesting photos, links, videos and stories. I’d love to hear from you, so please join me as I travel way out of my comfort zone and take to the skies to find my wings.
In the words of Eleanor Roosevelt:
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. The danger lies in refusing to face the fear, in not daring to come to grips with it.”
