Hi I'm Ben! Since the age of 13 I've always been an aspiring Pilot. I left school and have had jobs ever since leaving from Sales assistant to bus and lorry driver. I had worked up enough funds to attain my current National Private Pilots Licence by selling lots of things and saving up every penny I had.
My soul goal in life is to go commercial because I just know I can do it and I simply don't have the funds for that sort of thing at the moment. I have applied for the BA and Virgin pilot programmes but each time I've been declined. I have persevered by emailing Richard Branson himself and other airline Tycoons, however to my disappointment, I had no such luck.
They say in life "you don't ask you don't get" so I guess this is exactly what I'm doing. I'm currently serving in the Royal Air Force as an Aircraft Engineer and, yes I am also saving but I'm forward thinking because I know that when I leave I strongly intend to be a commercial pilot and hope to constantly better myself for an imminent successful future.
