Hey everyone, I'm new to aviation, recently started flight lessons, and interested in making connections and getting to know other pilots around here. Does anyone happen to have any advice or some extra flight gear?

Thanks,
-John

Where are you flying? It's a ton of fun, and the entire industry is experiencing a critical shortage of pilots at the moment. Scholarships are sometimes available if you know where to look. As you know already, getting started is certainly not for the faint of wallet.

I fly from Hummel Field in Middlesex right now. Where'd I look for scholarships?

I totally agree, It isn't cheap.
