Helen's Story

Helen was extremely proud of her son Oliver. He was approaching 14 and had always had ambitions to be a pilot. Oliver was obsessed with flying from an extremely young age, he knew everything about the industry and was continually researching information about how he could achieve his dream and get into the aviation industry when he was older. As a treat for his 14th birthday Helen, surprised Oliver with a trial flying lesson and he was instantly hooked! However, the cost of the lessons was a serious concern for Helen but luckily for her she had opened a Child Savings Account with her local credit union when Oliver was born and had saved regularly each month. With instant access to the savings account, Helen knew she could withdraw cash immediately which enabled her to sign Oliver up to several flying lessons enabling him to start his flying journey and put him on the path of training for his private pilot licence.
