COVID has caused untold damage to pilots currently working in the industry, but the plight of those taking their first steps into the profession is often forgotten.
In this special episode of the Australian Aviation Podcast, host Adam Thorn speaks to Mark Dixon and Lyn Gray, from training school Fly Oz, to get advice and reassurance for those thinking about climbing into the cockpit.
They highlight how an underlying pilot shortage is reason for optimism, why aviation will bounce back stronger than we think and what newcomers should look for in an instructor.
Finally, the passionate pair talk about what inspired them to pursue their dreams of a career in the skies.
