Man's oldest dream has been to fly and thankfully nowadays this goal is within reach of each of us. Unfortunately flying is addictive. After that first plane ticket, that first view of the earth from above and all the people "like ants" down below, well then life on the surface will never be the same.
At first it starts with window seats and a neverending gaze out the window at the terrain below. But eventually flying gets boring. You gradually start opting for aisle seats instead of windows. The whole process becomes a chore, rather than a joy.
So I bought a drone. And that helped, briefly. Once again I felt as free as a bird, flying high above "the ants" below me.
But eventually even drone flying becomes boring. So what is the next logical step? Getting a recreational pilot license! One of my best friends back in Austin got his earlier this year and swears it is the best decision he ever made.
Flying lessons are fun, but they take time. Before embarking on such an adventure, make sure you are somewhere that you don't mind staying for a while. Flying lessons in Sydney are a great idea because not only is Australia gorgeous from up above but Sydney is a diverse city with plenty of ways to pass the time when not up in the air.
Still uncertain? Check out all these unique and unusual things to do in Sydney in between your flying lessons.
