Inception of OFLY
Flying is one such dream that doesn’t leave you. The urge is ever lasting. It is easier to live such dream then putting on hold. I did research, met multiple industry people, and visited multiple flight schools. Flight school offer you something which they themselves do not understand. Training to drive a truck/bus is different than driving for sheer pleasure. Moreover, not every flight school or instructor is apt to train a private pilot. It is the journey lived by me and inception of OFLY took place with an objective of helping Private Pilot aspirants.
