My Aviation Journey
From a childhood dream to an airline captain
After graduating from flight college with a Commercial Pilot Licence in 1999, and with only $250 in his wallet, a suitcase, a typewriter, his flight bag and an abundance of grit, Gerard Mofet dove head first into the highly competitive world of aviation. He learned quickly that fulfilling his childhood dream of becoming the captain of a major airline would require skill, perseverance, sacrifice, courage, and a can-do spirit. In My Aviation Journey, Gerard shares his personal story and the challenges and experiences he faced, both the exhilarating and adverse, during his past twenty-five years of flying.
Not just a remarkable success story, My Aviation Journey is also a road map to help prepare future pilots on where to start learning to fly, how to find that first job, how to prepare for all the evaluations and testing pilots must go through, and how to advance in this career.
