I love to fly. I am always trying to share this love with others so they could feel the same joy and excitement I had in the cockpit. I have been fortunate that this pandemic has been more of an inconvenience rather than a struggle as I had access to high quality equipment and software. However, not having the ability to easily and effectively communicate with my classmates has been a challenge when it comes to working on productions together.
I am trying to teach the Sacramento community about the amazing opportunities and accessibility of learning to fly. I wanted to target people of all ages and layout the basic steps on how to become a pilot. I highlight Scholarship opportunities for the youth and that there are many airports in the Sacramento Region where one can learn to fly.
