I am currently training to become a pilot at the International Aviation Academy of New Zealand. I wanted to become a pilot ever since I was six years old. My teachers always helped me to follow my dream and to make it happen. A number of school projects supported my goal along the way, such as the EVolocity Project (a CPIT programme for high school students) where I built an electronic car as a team leader. The Gateway coordinators at school were also extremely helpful.
Recently, I met a flight instructor who also attended Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery and there are a couple of other pilots in training who also went to our school. I wonder if the school attracts the kinds of people who want to become pilots?
