For passengers, turbulence can be quite scary as they feel the plane moving around without knowing what’s going on. In order to feel more relaxed, it’s nice to know what is turbulence and how it’s caused. How do pilots cope with turbulence?
Becoming a pilot takes multiple steps. Whether you do a modular or an integrated course, when you will start flying, you will be working on your first licence: Your Private Pilot Licence (PPL). With this licence, you can fly by yourself in a small airplane alone or with family and friends, but not for commercial purposes.
Rome is such a beautiful city, there is so much to see and to do. I’ve been quite a few times in Rome and I still haven’t seen all of the landmarks. If you’re visiting Rome, prepare yourself for a lot of walking! There are hop on, hop off busses, but walking through the little streets will make you fall in love with this city!
Every time I go to Rome, I’m there for just a day or two. Below you find my top 10 of favourite places in Rome (that you can see all in one day)!

This week we went to Boccadifalco airport on a rainy Sunday, in October there is in Palermo an event called Le Vie dei Tesori and in the weekends, people can visit many places that are usually not accessible. The airport of Boccadifalco is one of the places to visit. We did a tour to the control tower and watched airplanes!
A few days later, I had to go back to work, but Diego tookover the vlog camera and showed his experience at the aeroclub and whilst flying! I really hope you enjoy this video! Let me know if Diego did well on the VLOG take over 🙂
See you next week!
After three months of theory classes, we got the Cessna course. One week of learning all about the Cessna 172, the airplane we were soon going to fly! After the Cessna theory exam, it was time for the simulator sessions. The simulator had all the features of the Cessna cockpit, so we could practice well and simulate flights on ground.
How do pilots navigate through clouds and at night ?
How do we find our destination without using Google maps to lead us the way?
This week I got to visit Spain for work and I really enjoyed being in Mallorca and Madrid for a few days! The first day we spent at Mallorca, visiting Palma, relaxing at the beach and exploring the underwater world with my GoPro! All of that in one day, because in the evening we flew to Madrid!
I have lived in Madrid for two years and the course I was attending was actually at the same airport as my flight school! It felt so great being back! We met up with Robert, my former roommate and one of my best friends.
I have written down all the locations we visited, so that you know where to go if you ever visit Madrid or Mallorca! Subscribe to my channel, so that you don’t miss out on any of the upcoming videos!! Happy watching, see you next week!!
After you have found a suitable flight school, you’ve passed the selections and you’ve found a way to pay for it, you will start the pilot course. If you do the Integrated ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot Licence) course, you will start with the course with ATPL theory classes.
You will have 14 subjects for which you will have to do 14 official exams:
During flight school I lived in Madrid. For two years I got the chance to live the Spanish life, learn the language and feel at home in this beautiful city! Coming back to Madrid still feels like coming home. I have always loved to stroll through the little streets between Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor and Plaza Santa Ana. I have enjoyed this city so much and I would love to give you a little insight in my favorite spots of Madrid!
How is altitude determined?
I really liked this question, as it is something relatively easy to explain, but at the same time quite interesting!
In this animation, you can see both airplanes flying at the same altitude, but at a different distance from the ground. How do we determine our altitude?
