Why do tests scare me?

April 19, 2016


Tests scare the bejesus out of me!

I don’t know if it’s due to a fear of failing, what people might think or just incredibly high expectations of myself. What ever it is, I’ve never been OK with being tested. Being the avid follower that you are, of course, you’ll know I’m talking about my Private Pilot Licence (PPL) test.

I just keep putting it off for some reason. I mean, in the books, I’m well and truly ready to take the test I just can’t bring myself to doing it. One thing that I think contributes is the fact that the CFI at my flying school scares me (at least he doesn’t work for CASA I guess). Don’t get me wrong, Steve is one of the nicest instructors I know, I think it’s just the fact that he has the power to somewhat shatter my aviation dreams that is  keeping me away.

For the moment, I’m really enjoying going for little flights here or there but I do really want the freedom of having a PPL. I know I’m ready and have the required skills and knowledge so maybe it’s time to just get over my self and go for it.

If you have any words of wisdom or encouragement, comment below because I’d love to hear them.
