Everything in flying training is challenging.
I defy any pilot,
even it they were stunning pilots,
and the best of their generation,
flying has this
wonderful, wonderful thing
that it challenges all human beings when you learn to fly.
Because the weather changes, machines break,
the navigation kit doesn't work,
you've got to deal with other aircraft...
It's just exciting and compelling
So few people can do it, you see people
who you really admire and they fail for some reason.
Just make them bad human beings,
you know, God, I'm hanging on by a thread
and how come I'm still here?
And throughout flying training that,
it's the ability to absorb and then apply
very rapidly a mass of new learning,
every single day of your life for two to three years
and that is exciting, it's challenging.
But the theme is that desire that you cannot see
yourself being anything but a pilot.
