Anyone who knows me well would probably agree that I have a keen interest or even obsession of everything to do with aircraft. As a student pilot, I try to gain knowledge about whatever drifts through my mind on this subject. I have always been somewhat interested in aeronautics, but my interest was augmented when I started learning to fly last year.
