The dream is alive - John Young

Since I was a little boy, I've been staring at helicopters in the sky, knowing I wanted to be the one flying them. A true passion was born. Growing stronger throughout the years, I started flying glider planes when I was 14 years old. After attending university for 3 years, I made the decision to chase my ultimate dream and start a career as a helicopter pilot.

"The Dream Is Alive", I've been enjoying it ever since.

An overview of my experience and hours can be found here (.pdf).
