My name is Justin Hawkins.  I've recently started taking flying lessons at Rock Hill Aviation, in South Carolina.  My goal is to become a Flight Instructor while getting my commercial and IFR along the way.  I decided to document my training and share it online.  Each of my lessons are described below. 

Please feel free to email me with comments, questions, or suggestions.
I will be adding more pictures as I take them, so be sure to check the Flying Photos link.
