Slumdog Pilot Training Campaign

Hello! Good day, my name is Tiwonge Gerald Mwale. I am 30 years old & aspiring to become an Airline Pilot. It has been a childhood dream to pursue not just a career but a life in aviation.

At the moment, I need financial assistance to complete my Private Pilot License. So far I  have written 7 exams & the results are as follows: Radio 100%, Meteorology 100%, Airlaw 97%, Human Perfomance 96%, Princples of Flight 96%, Aircraft Technical & General 85%, Flight Planning 84%, Navigation will be the last exam & I will write it end Of November 2023.

After my last exam I need to fly a minimum of 45 hours to qualify for the Private Pilot License, hence, I am raising these funds. Each flight training hour costs R2300.

Here is a link to my storytelling channel on YouTube.

Thanks For You Support. Your contribution towards helping me achieve my lifetime dream will be immensely appreciated.

It was so inspiring to meet you Tiwonge during my visit in March. I know you’ll achieve your dream and I look forward welcoming you to Montréal when you eventually fly to Canada!!
Well done on your results so far and all the best on your journey to fill full your dreams. Looking forward to you flying me around the country one day.

Tiwonge is someone who absolutely deserves our support. He has a great sense of community as well as ambition. To become a pilot given the obstacles he has to overcome would be an amazing achievement.
