Twins in single engine planes

Twins Charles and Will started flying with GoFly in 2015 and passed their flight tests in December 2017. For much of their training, the two brothers were also taught by two pilot brothers. They passed their nav flight tests in April 2019.

Will (on the left in both pictures):

I’ve been flying since I was 14.

I did my training in the school holidays.
 
The freedom of being able to control an aircraft and enjoy all the procedures that need to be done to fly one safely, has always been a lot of fun.
 

My plans are to hopefully work as a commercial pilot someday.

Charles (on the right in both pictures):

Before I started flying in 2014/15 I always had an interest in WW2-era aircraft and aviation for as long as I can remember. 

I found that making the most of holiday times was the easiest way to get a lot of flying done. Though, because of that I could be flying every day for two weeks, but then I would not be flying for up to three months, which meant that some procedures needed refreshing when I got back in the air again after a long break.

I’d say that everything from actually flying, to navigating, prepping and understanding how the an aircraft performs the way it does has been very enjoyable for me.

Very soon I’m beginning my studies as a medical student, and I have a keen interest in the work that the Royal Flying Doctor Service does.
