    so for the last month or so ive been seeing adds on tv for beapilot.com, explaining how easy it is to get a pilots license. I cant think this is a good thing.

    What's so wierd about that. Just because someone takes a few lessons doesn't guarantee they'll become a certified pilot.

    there was a bloke that used to work here who could fly fighter jets and choppers and all kinds of crazy shit in the air force. he works in intelligence or something now. i'd always be like "what are you doing this weekend?" "oh, just flying the wife and kids over to new zealand for the weekend". crazy. it was just like getting in the car and driving down the street to him

    a couple of my friends are pilots. and they didn't get licensed from there... flying is so much fun. when my boy b was getting his license and needed hours, we would fly places just to go out for lunch. it was fucking sweet.

    Did you look at the website?It's not a flight school. All they do is list flight schools.
