Student Private Pilot Licence Achieved
Shaheer van Duyn on achieving his PPL...
Dear Fatima, Samantha and Mr Sadar
I would like to sincerely give my thanks to Fatima , Samantha and the Sakhikamva foundation for giving me the opportunity and for allowing me to complete my PPL. The bursary helped me so much to complete my flying hours, tests and briefing sessions. I appreciated the positive feedback after every report and assistance when I needed it. Thank you to Mr Sadar, who always encouraged me and checked on my progress. My parents supported me a lot and motivated me when things became stressful. I am really blessed to have all the support and solid structure that I can depend on. It’s been a very long journey and difficult at times with lots of sacrifices by getting up early and spending weekends and holidays at Morningstar. The whole experience was challenging and at times I felt like it would never end. The weather delayed most of the flying but I tried managing my time by studying instead.
I am disappointed that I couldn’t finish in time to apply for the commercial bursary. I have learned that if you sacrifice and work hard towards a goal, it’s possible to achieve it. I would like to pursue my dream in flying and also study at a tertiary institution. I have proven to myself and others that anything is possible if you set your mind to it.
Thank you once again.
Shaheer van Duyn
