CPL/IR and ATPL as my Postgraduate Studies

There are a few who asked me why am I embarking on my flight training and aren’t I too old for it.

Well, to me, it makes a lot of sense. For one, I love everything about flying and the aviation industry. Secondly, there’s no such thing as being too old to achieve your dreams. Plus, I’m only 23 right now.

There were also those few who asked me, what’s the use of my accounting degree then?

My explanation is usually this. Not only do I want to fly, I would also like to be involved in the management side of things. Not only that, I plan to have my own business one day. At least, I have some background in business and not just the technical side of things.

Also, to put that into perspective, you’d see others doing Masters and PhDs as part of their postgraduate studies. Well, I see CPL/IR + ATPL as my Masters studies. For others who asked whether I’ll be doing any postgraduate studies after my bachelor’s degree, indeed I am.

For those who do not know:

CPL = Commercial Pilot’s License

IR = Instrument Rating

ATPL = Airline Transport Pilot’s License

Apart from university, I am also doing a couple of courses by distance education. One is Diploma of Financial Services (Financial Planning) and the other is Certificate of Professional Freelance Journalism.
