John writes ....
"No doubt due to my mother's influence as a long time volunteer for 'The Smith Family', I have been volunteering pretty well all my adult life.
By far the most rewarding volunteering of my life commenced about 18 months ago when I became an 'Earth Angel' for Angel Flight. Every one of my 80 missions since then has been wonderful. I get to meet face to face with the people I am assisting, sometimes multiple times, and learn from them the burden of travelling from their regional towns to Adelaide for medical tests or treatments before they discovered Angel Flight.
Everyone is welcome to this Fundraiser for Angel Flight. Bookings are necessary! ... See MoreSee Less

"I want to be an Airline Pilot! Initially I began lessons to see if I really wanted to learn to fly! Even to just know if I was going to enjoy it!
I have wanted to be a Pilot since I was a child. I live near Adelaide Airport and love watching the aeroplanes!
I felt really comfortable to be going solo. Flying feels like the right thing to be doing and now I will continue the journey!!!! " ... See MoreSee Less

"This is something that I have always wanted to do .... I am trying it now to see where it goes ....
I was working on a 2 year contract with the RFDS as a Nurse and Paramedic at the base in Andamooka. I am now taking some time out for me. I have done 10 years of Healthcare and need a new challenge and adventure!
I was actually not nervous at all, I felt ready. In my job I have learnt to deal with stresses and get on with the task!
I am on my journey .... " ... See MoreSee Less

"This has been an ambition of mine since I left school! I should have done this 10 years ago!
Going solo is flying everything that you have been taught and all the learning comes together in those moments!
I was relieved to come to a full stop and now I can't wait for my next lessons to do it all over again!!" ... See MoreSee Less
Patrick Milewski .... First Solo in the 1946 tailwheel Champ
"I have always wanted to be a pilot and am hoping to become an Airline Pilot in the future.
I came to Adelaide Biplanes for the first time for an Air Cadet Flight Experience and have continued on to learn to fly.
The Champ has got a retro feel to it and this fits with my passion of building Airfix kits of WWII aircraft to the modern airliners.
Going solo felt like a big step towards my goal. It has been a real motivating moment for me along the journey!!" ... See MoreSee Less
Congratulations and with your career in aviation ✈️👍

"I was 8 years old when I first watched Indiana Jones and I knew then that travelling and exploring is my way of life.
Many years later, I crossed 5 continents, visited 40 countries, 238 cities, towns and villages and it is still not enough!
Moving to Australia made me realise I needed wings to explore this breathtaking country .... and the rest of this planet!!
Let the fun begin!! " ... See MoreSee Less
