My name is Jeremy Blackston. I have recently started pursuing my dream of flying. I am 22 yrs old. All i can say is WOW! I am a week away from my solo and am pretty nervous. I'm loving every moment though. This board has been a great place for me to find info on the industry and where it is headed. I never knew there were so many different routes to a flying career. I have a job as a CAD Operator that pays marginal at best but I enjoy it and the benefits are nice. I'm hoping in this down time to maybe catch up and get my ratings and some serious flight time. I fly approx. 3-4 times a week out of McCollum Field in Kennesaw, GA north of Atlanta. I have been talking to Wildbill as he is a old friend of my dads'. He has provided me with an abundance of info and he still has a LOT to give. LOL!! I can truly say I always thought my dream would remain just that, a dream. But now it is coming true! Well, it's almost time to go back up. I can't wait. Thanks for all the good info in advance!!!
