Private Pilot Course

This page contains photos from my Private Pilot course at Anglo-American Aviation.

These below were made by Marta on our first flight after I got my pilot certificate. It was also a proof that school C-172 can fly above 10.000ft. :-)

Surrounding

Those are some of the views you can get while training at AAA - ocean side, El Capitan Reservoir, Ramona airport.

Lodging

Students live in a number of apartments, rented nearby (but too far to get to the airport on foot in reasonable time).

That's how it looks inside - two students share one apartment, but each has it's own private room.

When you go out you have few minutes walk to either huge shopping center or to Albersons grocery store.

Long crosscountry

As part of your training you need to fly "long crosscountry". Mine was 3hr long, from Gillespie to Imperial and then to Desert Resorts. All in all it took more than 3 hours.
